About Catholic High

Catholic High School for Boys was founded by Bishop John B. Morris of the Diocese of Little Rock in 1930 to ensure that Catholic boys of the Little Rock area had access to quality Catholic secondary education. More than three-quarters of a century later, CHS continues its tradition of aiding boys’ spiritual growth and providing quality academics.

It contained two newspapers from 1911, four coins, two business cards from local priests, a photo of the 1910 Little Rock College football team, and a drawing of the building by the architect. The discovery of the newspapers led to the realization that Catholic High began its current renovation 101 years to the day after the cornerstone was installed.

The cornerstone resides in the main foyer as a monument to our history.
