Bishop McCort High School is a private, Catholic high school located in Johnstown, Pennsylvania in Cambria County. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown, though it is not run by the Roman Catholic Diocese due to its privatization in 2008.
In 1961 the original building had three structures added to it. The name was changed to Bishop McCort High School, in honor of Bishop John J. McCort who started the Diocesan Catholic High School.
The most recent addition to the school is the $3 million Bach Wellness Center. The 14,436-square-foot (1,341.1 m2) building includes a weight room, a fitness area, and an auxiliary gymnasium for the school's basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball and tennis teams. The center is named for Dr. Thomas and Eileen Bach, who donated $1.2 million to the project.
