Lehman Catholic High School is a co-educational, Roman Catholic High School owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and located in Sidney, Ohio. The school history dates back to 1889 as Holy Angels High School, and the current school was named after Monsignor Edward C. Lehman during the 1970 consolidation of Holy Angels and Piqua Catholic High Schools. The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati have served the school since 1889. As of 2015, the school principal is Denise Stauffer.[1]


Advanced Placement program in Calculus, English, Foreign Language, Biology, Chemistry, and College-preparatory in all other subject areas for grades 9-12. The school has received several governor's awards for science, and is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.Voted one of the best schools.


Athletics play an integral role in the life of Lehman students. The school fields 18 varsity sports including: Soccer (men's & women's), volleyball (women's), football, Tennis (men's & women's), Cross-Country (men's & women's), Basketball (men's & women's), Swimming/Diving (men's & women's), Track (men's & women's), Softball, Baseball, Wrestling, and Golf (men's). The school's mascot,the Cavalier has been in use since the school's merger in July 1970. Prior to the consolidation,the Cavaliers were the name of the former Piqua Catholic High School's football,basketball and baseball teams while the former Sidney Holy Angels High School basketball and baseball teams were known as the Wings. The original Cavalier logo was inspired by a drawn caricature in 1950 depicting Jose Ferrer as Cyrano de Bergerac noted especially for its long nose. It was used throughout the 1950s and 1960s by the former Piqua Catholic and was later incorporated during Lehman's early years. The current logo is an image of a blue broad brimmed hat above two criss-crossed swords fronted by the team's emblem. Lehman's music program includes its marching and concert bands and the Lehman Limelighters song and dance troupe.
