Academics

Cardinal Mooney’s rigorous college preparatory curriculum is designed to prepare our students for admission to higher education. The curriculum is intended to challenge students to grow academically to reach their full potential. In addition to the college prep classes, Cardinal Mooney also offers an Honors and Advanced Placement course sequence. Students are initially placed in courses based the High School Placement Test and their middle school academic performance. Later course placements are based on the student’s past history of achievement, grades and teacher recommendations. The current School Profile can be found here.

Cardinal Mooney also offers four year programs in music, art and drama. All students are required to take one course in the arts. Students who desire more intensive course offerings in the arts may take a full four year program in addition to their college prep requirements.
