Bishop Hendricken High School is the region’s premier Catholic college preparatory school for young men operated in the tradition of the Congregation of Christian Brothers and Blessed Edmund Rice.

Named for the first bishop of Providence, Thomas Hendricken, the school attracts gifted scholars, artists and athletes who become men of character and compassion. Dedicated faculty, a rigorous curriculum, strong community support, rich student life and a commitment of service to others serve as the school’s pillars. They combine to help Bishop Hendricken strengthen our students’ relationship with our God through the development of the total person: heart, mind, soul and body.
