North Catholic has been a Pittsburgh institution for close to 75 years. In recent years, as Pittsburgh's Catholic population shifted northward, the length of travel time to school and the aging of facilities became issues, prompting the school to seek to develop a new site for its current and future students that could provide the newest resources and the opportunity to grow.
North provides a high quality college preparatory education to students, based in Catholic traditions. North Catholic alumni include many local, regional and national leaders, including high ranking persons within Fortune 500 companies, institutions of higher learning, the U.S. military, professional sports organizations, and local/state/federal government.
North Catholic is operated in the tradition of the Marianists, a Catholic religious order dedicated to the adoration, study and worship of the Virgin Mary. In addition to excellent academics, North Catholic is known for the service of its students in the community, various athletic teams, and successful programs in activities like drama and forensics.
The opening of the new school, located adjacent to Route 228 in Cranberry Twp, Butler County, is highly anticipated by the regional Catholic Community and many parents in the North Pittsburgh area. The new campus will include community facilities in addition to the high school.
