Why Cardinal Mooney?

Cardinal Mooney High School, one of the top private schools in Sarasota, is a special place. We are committed to the development of the whole person, emphasizing the personal dignity and value of the student and of the teacher. With this as our motivation, we hope to carry out the mission entrusted by Jesus to His church: to bring all of creation to its fulfillment according to God’s design by proclaiming the message of truth, building a community of justice and peace, and reaching out in service to the entire human community.

Cardinal Mooney is a Catholic college-prep high school with a full honors and Advanced Placement program. In addition we offer four year programs in music, art and drama. We offer a rigorous college prep curriculum that helps to develop student knowledge, self-discipline, time management, and confidence to succeed in college and beyond.

Cardinal Mooney is an active learning community where students and parents are dynamically involved in all facets of school life. Whether in academics, athletics, service, clubs, music, art or drama, all students are encouraged to work and strive to achieve their potential. We attempt to challenge each student to mature in their faith, in their personal development and in their pursuit of knowledge and understanding, ultimately to bring their gifts and talents to others.
