Kearney Catholic High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Kearney, Nebraska, United States. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Grand Island.

Background[edit]

Kearney Catholic High School was founded in 1961, as the first Catholic high school in Kearney.[2] The school was dedicated by Bishop John Paschang on October 18, 1961, at first offering grades 7-10. A grade was added each year following, with the first graduating class of 1964 consisting of 22 students. The school now offers classes in grades 6 to 12, and is a member of the Loup-Platte Conference. However, the school will leave the conference after the 2017/2018 school year. The school is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.[3]
