Principal’s Message


My name is Chip Schrader.  I am excited to serve as the principal at Owensboro Catholic Middle School.  The staff at OCMS look forward to educating and growing your child’s faith in the Lord in a Christ-centered environment during the upcoming school year.  We all consider ourselves called and blessed to work in this school where we can live out our faith in front of our students while giving them the best education possible.

Faith is our number one priority but is followed closely by academics. We offer a variety of academic enrichment experiences including High School level courses as well as a smaller more conducive learning environment. Our students have demonstrated their academic success through their above-average scores on the MAP Test and the PreACT 8/9 assessment. 

We will all strive to teach our students to be the people that God has called them to be, to make an impact in our community for the cause of Christ, and to strive to give them the skills they need to be successful in their educational path.  We have many extracurricular activities for our students to participate in.  As our students participate in these activities it gives them the opportunity to give back, grow meaningful relationships and learn to contribute to a community.

Thank you for entrusting your child’s spiritual and educational development with Owensboro Catholic Schools.  We are looking forward to a great school year.  Go Aces!
