Springfield Catholic High School is a private, Roman Catholic high school in Springfield, Missouri, United States. It is located in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau. Springfield Catholic is consistently ranked as one of the premier schools in southwest Missouri.

Background[edit]

Springfield Catholic High School was established in 1916 as St. Agnes High School to serve the families of St. Agnes Parish. In 1957, it became a regional high school serving parishes all around Springfield, including St. Agnes Cathedral and School, St. Joseph Parish and school, Immaculate Conception Parish and School, St. Elizabeth Anne Seaton Parish and School, Holy Trinity Parish, and Sacred Heart Parish. The school was renamed Springfield Catholic in 1974 and relocated to its present location in 1986. The school was recently named one of the top 50 catholic high schools in the nation. Generous donations gathered by funding campaigns helped to replace facilities and remodel a portion of the school. The new athletic facilities are used as a recruitment tool in order to bolster the school's already superb athletic ability. [1]
