Office for Academics
Welcome to the Office for Academics at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School. We offer our students a rigorous college-preparatory program in a one-to-one laptop environment. We challenge our students in communication and collaboration, problem-solving and critical thinking, research and questioning, reflection and self-evaluation. The faculty uses a variety of instructional strategies to engage students in understanding the world and their faith. The student takes ownership of the learning process and develops skills for life-long learning.
The laptop program increases student engagement, relevancy, individualized instruction, and communication among students, parents, and teachers. Supported by a wireless network, our students and teachers can use and evaluate internet and intranet resources in each class.
We offer a wide-range of college-preparatory and honors courses covering all aspects of the traditional liberal arts and science education. Advanced Placement courses are offered in Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, U.S. History, European History, U.S. Government, Spanish Languauge, and English Literature and Composition. Students are required to complete a four-year religious education program, encouraging them to embrace Christian values and practices.
As an important part of our mission we are called to develop the whole person and we are proud that our academic program is such an excellent part of the BMCHS educational experience.
