Bishop Ward High School

About Us » Home


Bishop Ward is a Catholic, college preparatory high school serving students who want to be challenged academically and spiritually and who have their sights set firmly on attending college.

Since 1908, Bishop Ward has been proud to provide a “quality, Catholic, college preparatory education that nurtures the body, mind, and soul of each student.”

Bishop Ward offers many programs to give each student a chance to succeed in college and beyond. Some of the programs that are offered include:

  • Academy of Finance: The only Catholic Academy in the nation and the only Academy in Kansas and Missouri
  • College credit offered through the Donnelly Alliance
  • Science Lectures from notable members of the community
  • Junior Police Academy
  • Robotics Club
  • Service Projects and chances to grow in faith through the Campus Ministry Department

Students at Bishop Ward High School go on to be important members of their community which is why they are proud to make the claim, “This is Cyclone Country!”

And even more proud to continue the march toward our second century of educating many of the brightest and best students in Wyandotte County.

Whether it's the renovation of the football field, the business community support for our Academy of Finance program, or the renovation of the Willard L. Phillips Memorial Auditorium – every improvement marks a step toward a bright future for Bishop Ward High School and toward continuing the Bishop Ward Legacy and Tradition. 
This is only possible by YOUR help, become a part of the Legacy today!
