If you are looking for a challenging Catholic high school for your child, check out Cardinal Hayes High School located at 650 Grand Concourse in Bronx, NY. The school’s mission is to give to young men of the Metropolitan area a challenging education in the Catholic tradition by encouraging unique talents and fostering self-development.
Cardinal Hayes High School seeks to inspire students to strive for personal excellence and responsible citizenship rooted within a Catholic framework and traditional Gospel values. We work to accomplish this goal through a rigorous program of academics, extra-curricular activities, discipline and spiritual growth. The goal of Cardinal Hayes High School is to engender a life-long intellectual curiosity, awakening within the student the need for self-discipline, the value of personal integrity and the responsibility of engaged citizenship – all emerging from the tenets and principles of a faith-filled Catholic education.
The school began in 1939 when Bishop Francis Spellman of Boston was appointed to be the sixth Archbishop of the Archdiocese of New York, and his goal was to build a lasting memorial to his predecessor, Cardinal Hayes. Cardinal Spellman had a dream and a vision – a dream that a fine, well-equipped, religiously sound school could be built in a brief time to educate the young men of the Bronx and Manhattan and other nearby areas – that dream came true in less than two years.
