  • Fall Sports Season is in Full Swing!

    If there’s one thing that sets Bishop Guilfoyle athletics apart from other schools, it’s the amount of participation among students, staff, coaches and alumni. “We have about 85 percent of our student body involved in athletics, most of them in multiple sports,” said BG principal Joan Donnelly.

  • Pre-AP 7th- and 8th-Grade Programs Just One Way BG Academics Stand Apart

    When BG staff realized there were many non-Catholic families in the region sending their children to private schools out of the area, it was established that both a need and a market existed for a higher-level curriculum, to attract students to BG. Katrina Brown, a BG alum and educator for more than 30 years (with a specialty in teaching high-level students), was called upon to help administrators create a 7th- and 8th-grade program that would not only attract new students, but also challenge current high-level students at BG.
