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.

  • Catholic High School has the lowest college remediation rate in the state. In essence, Catholic High graduates not only gain admissions to colleges, they also have the academic tools and personal values to thrive there.


  • Catholic High’s tuition is kept affordable by design. We prefer to teach a socio-economic cross section as opposed to catering to one specific class. Tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is $4,600/year for Catholics. It is $5,600/year for boys of other faith traditions. There is no building fee or activity fee.


  • In addition to the 7A Sports Program, there are over thirty teams and clubs at Catholic High.


  • Catholic High School’s award-winning Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps is one of only two Marine JROTC programs in the state and has been named a Navy Honor School for 28 of the last 31 years.


  • Catholic High collaborates with Mount St. Mary Academy in such areas as JROTC, physical fitness team, theater, dances, and homecoming activities.


  • The forty-four Catholic High School faculty members have sixteen master’s degrees, three PhD’s, two Juris Doctors, six Stephens’ Awards, and over 700 years of teaching experience.
