Bishop Hogan is a fully accredited Catholic School which provides education in Preschool through 8th grade. Our students spend their days in a nurturing, learning environment. Your family will feel a strong sense of community here, as there is a true bond among parents, students and staff.

Your child will have religion class daily and also participate in weekly mass and prayer services. We share the good news of Jesus to provide the pathway to faith-filled living. All students are taught to embrace family values and honor the dignity and uniqueness of each individual. Our mission is to empower students through academic excellence and spiritual growth. Besides the core subjects, we offer Music, Physical Education, Band, and Computers. Our students participate in Project Lead the Way, a program that gets students excited about math, science, and STEM concepts. Students work to solve real-world problems that are relevant and meaningful to them.

Basketball is an integral part of Bishop Hogan Memorial School. Middle School basketball is played in the fall and 5th/6th grade basketball is played in the spring. Students in 7th and 8th grade can also participate in a Coop with Chillicothe Middle School, where they can participate in football, track, volleyball, wrestling, girls’ softball and the Scholar Bowl.

Guardian Angel Policy

Be an Angel. . .Here on Earth

Although the cost to educate a child at Bishop Hogan is far below the amount spent by the public schools, we realize that our families must support the public schools as well as their own school. Not all families are able to do this. With your help, we need never deny any child a Catholic education. By becoming a Guardian Angel, you can help a child continue to receive a quality spiritual and intellectual education.

This tuition assistance is funded solely by contributions from alumni, families, trusts, and fund raisers.
