Bishop Fenwick High School is a parochial high school in Franklin, Ohio, USA.


The school was opened August 21, 1952 and named in honor of Edward Dominic Fenwick, first Roman Catholic Bishop of Cincinnati. The first principal was Rev. Julian Krusling. Due to outgrowing the original site, the school moved on November 20, 1962 to Manchester Road in Middletown. The growth continued and in September 2004 the school moved to a new campus, on State Road 122 on the east side of Middletown.


The curriculum is accredited by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association. Curriculum levels are Advanced College Preparatory study, College Preparatory and General Studies.
