O’Gorman High School Named to Catholic Honor Roll for 7th Straight Year
Sioux Falls Catholic Schools and O’Gorman High School teachers, students and administrators are once again celebrating the fact that for the seventh year in row, the high school has been named to the national Catholic High School Honor Roll! This year’s list included 10 new honorees as well as three schools that have earned recognition each of the Honor Roll’s seven years of existence. O’Gorman was one of the three to receive this distinction.
The purpose of the Honor Roll is to recognize and encourage excellence in Catholic secondary education. It is a critical resource for parents and educators that distinguish those schools. The recognition also identifies the high degree of excellence demonstrated by each of the schools in following categories: academic excellence, Catholic Identity, and civic education.
The best schools demonstrate a balanced excellence, which includes an active Catholic culture, sound college preparation and integration of Church teaching in all departments. These schools also display sound moral, catechetical and civic formation that prepares students for vocations in the world as political, religious, scientific, and business leaders.
