Thank You for your interest in joining our Bishop McDevitt High School Family!
Our House is Always Open!
Being a small co-ed school with a diverse population, McDevitt provides growth opportunities in a wide variety of ways. Being a distinctly Catholic School, our students are able to thrive in a Christ centered environment where dignity and respect for all are fostered. Academic achievement, personal growth, and spiritual development are all end results of a student’s four year journey at McDevitt.
I invite you to come and visit McDevitt. Please contact us for a shadow day, where a your child can spend the day as a guest of a student attending classes, meeting teachers and experiencing our modern facilities. We also invite you to attend one of our open houses to tour our school and have any questions answered.
Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to meeting you in the near future!
Ms. Megan Gerhard
Director of Admissions
