Why Cardinal Mooney?

Cardinal Mooney is the best high school in both Sarasota and Manatee Counties. We offer a college preparatory curriculum that challenges every student to achieve the highest level of academic distinction. Our Cougar Family fosters spiritual growth, celebrates the talent of all students and prepares them to be servant leaders for our world.

CMHS’ curriculum includes college prep, honors, and Advanced Placement (AP) classes. We work 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 highest 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.
