To be able to experience Owensboro Catholic High School, I would not have it any other way. Just like any school there will always be problems or things you may not like, but at time, the good factors out weigh the bad. I love how small our class sizes are (freshman, sophomore, junior, senior). With that being said in a way everyone knows everyone, and we all act as one big family. If I could change anything though, it would be the involvement. I know it may sound elementary, but I wish we did more activities with one another as classes to build stonger friendships.

I knew Owensboro Catholic was the school for me when they came to my school and said their first priority was to get me to heaven! I enjoy being able to strengthen my religious beliefs while expanding my education. Owensboro Catholic is one big family and our alumni gives us strong support. Graduates of Owensboro Catholic are given a great opportunity to be an important member of society!
The teachers here are amazing and all truly love their jobs. They're all very knowledgable and always have stuff planned for class there is not any unplanned time. They push the students to be the best they can be without being overwhelming. The homework and class load can become a bit much at times when teachers don't get through all they wanted in a single class period. The best thing, however, is how much they honestly care about the students and are a family. When one of my classmate's father passed away this past year all of her teachers went and made their classes sign a card for her and they checked to make sure she was okay each day. The same goes for if something happens to one of the teachers, such as when one had a heartattack over spring break. We received daily updates via the principal and sent him a card and some flowers. They are always available to those struggling students before or after school and some even have calendars in their rooms dedicated just to scheduling help.
