Director’s Message

On behalf of our administration, faculty, and staff, welcome to Owensboro Catholic Schools!

Owensboro Catholic Schools has a long tradition of offering a quality Catholic education to the greater Owensboro Community. We are proud to say many of our families have sent two or even three generations of children through our schools. While at the same time, we continue to attract new families wanting a faith-based education, strong academic programs, and award winning extracurricular and athletic programs. This is a testament to our faith foundation and our dedicated faculty and staff.

Our K-12 program enrolls approximately 1,300 students and includes four campuses: OCS K-3 Campus, OCS 4-6 Campus, OCMS 7-8 Campus, and OCHS 9-12 Campus. It is our mission  “to provide excellence in Catholic faith formation and academics which prepare students to become responsible individuals as well as members of their family, Church, and community”. We aim to achieve our mission through the ACES Pillars of Academics, Catholicity and Discipleship, Extracurricular Activities and Athletics, and Stewardship.

Our schools are blessed with the support of 15 parishes in the Owensboro Diocese. This support provides a strong faith foundation for our school community. Our greatest assets are the people in our schools. From our dedicated faculty and staff, to our generous students, parents, and alumni, it is the dedicated people in our school community who truly define Owensboro Catholic Schools.

If you would like to learn more about our programs in our schools, please feel free to contact the Central Office (270.686.8896), and we would be more than happy to meet with you and take you on a tour of our schools.

Thank you for your interest in Owensboro Catholic Schools!
