About Us

In our mission, we recognize that through education the empowerment of women can effect the transformation of our society.


The Catholic High School of Baltimore is an independent college-preparatory high school for young women, sponsored by the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia.

Information for IND Families

We are deeply saddened by the announcement of the closure of IND. We look forward to helping current IND students and their families find the right fit to continue their high school education and supporting them in their transition to becoming a Daughter of Catholic High.


Catholic High students become articulate in speech and writing, adept in the usage of technology, able to understand human culture through a study of humanities and the arts, and adept in those academic and social skills that promote team building and problem solving.

Student Life

Along with extracurricular activities, Catholic High students have many different responsibilities and privileges that are integral components of the Catholic High community.


Catholic High is committed to promoting and encouraging young women to participate in interscholastic competition and benefit from the advantages athletic competition can provide.

Our Community

Starting with the first graduating class in 1943, Catholic High alumnae have continued to let their light shine by going on to become doctors, lawyers, accountants, teachers, mothers, scientists, artists, executives and entrepreneurs, living all over the country and all over the world. More than 12,000 alumnae call Catholic High home, and those women are diverse and dynamic.


“As a part of Campus Ministry, Catholic High has made it possible for me to help lead others towards Christ through kindness and generosity."

— Kate Walz '19
