Catholic High School for Boys was founded by Bishop John B. Morris of the Diocese of Little Rock in 1930 to ensure that Catholic boys of the Little Rock area had access to quality Catholic secondary education. More than three-quarters of a century later, CHS continues its tradition of aiding boys' spiritual growth and providing quality academics.
Catholic High School is a college-preparatory school that strives to challenge boys in academia, but the school also stands as a witness to the truth of manhood: faith, integrity, and, as Father Tribou often stressed, duty.
At CHS, boys experience a special kind of fraternity, often referred to by faculty, graduates, and students alike as the Catholic High brotherhood. What forms this brotherhood? From time immemorial, challenges have bonded men, and the rigorous academics and strict discipline of CHS are certainly enough for that; but all-school Masses, pep rallies with the skit cheerleaders, athletic events, and intramurals, serve to strengthen CHS boys' brotherhood, rooted, as it is, in faith, laughter, competition, and common goals.
Catholic High School for Boys' philosophy is To Teach as Jesus Did. Our mission statement proclaims that We are a quality, Catholic, college-preparatory high school for boys. Our two main goals are Christian formation and quality academics.
Catholic High, which is enthusiastically supported by its alumni, is accredited by the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accrediting Association, and CHS students, in conjunction with Mount St. Mary's Academy for girls, participate in athletic competition in the Arkansas Activities Association 7A state classification.
