Bishop Manogue Catholic High School is a Catholic high school in Reno, Nevada. It is the only Catholic high school in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Reno and 1 of only 2 Catholic high schools in the state of Nevada.

History[edit]

The Catholic high school was established in Reno, Nevada in 1948 and named for the first Bishop of Sacramento, Patrick Manogue.[2] In 1957 the school moved from its location off of Mill Street to 400 Bartlett St., off of Valley Road, adjacent to the University of Nevada. Bishop Manogue Catholic High School remained at this location for nearly fifty years before being relocated in 2004 to a site in southwest Reno. The 1957 Bishop Manogue was torn down after it was purchased by the University of Nevada and the site is now home to an athletic center.

Athletics[edit]

Manogue's school colors are green and gold, and its mascot is the Miner, in tribute to the school's namesake, Bishop Patrick Manogue, who was also a miner.
