Mission & Philosophy


The mission of Bishop Montgomery High School is to provide quality Catholic education primarily to college bound students of varied academic abilities from the South Bay area.

We serve the needs of the Church and the larger community by providing intellectually mature persons who have learned to integrate world knowledge with Catholic beliefs and values.

Our mission is accomplished through the cooperative efforts of parents, students, and staff by providing a rigorous curriculum and a positive discipline program that challenges all students to reach their potential.

The mission is realized in a community that nourishes the faith life of the parents, students, and staff through prayer, worship, and service to others.

The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, or ethnic origin in the administration of its education policies, admission policies, scholarships and loan program, and athletic or other school administered programs.


Jesus Christ is "the Way, the Truth, and the Life" (Jn 14:6). Rooted in this belief, Bishop Montgomery High School proclaims the centrality of Christ. Our philosophy is founded on the belief that God has revealed His compassion for all aspects of life.

In order to grow together in Christ, we open our arms and hearts to a population of qualified candidates who are economically, socially, and ethnically diverse. "There is no longer Jew or Greek, male or female, slave or free, but all are one in Christ Jesus" (Gal 3:28 ). Thus while we accept and respect those from various backgrounds who seek the benefit of our community, we remain faithful to the richness of our Catholic tradition and practices.

Recognizing parents as primary educators, we assist in the spiritual, intellectual, social and physical development of every student. To do this, we provide a challenging, college-oriented curriculum which enables our students to continue with higher education. We offer an extensive extracurricular program, one that requires personal responsibility and community spirit through social interaction and physical activity. We strive to create an atmosphere in which the faith of our students will mature allowing them to integrate world knowledge with the light of faith and to grow in the pursuit of truth.
