Mission Statement
Lexington Catholic High School serves as an integral part of the educational mission of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Lexington.  We serve Catholic students and students of other faith traditions by providing a high quality secondary education that empahasizes the spiritual ideals and moral values of the Gospel.  In this faith community, we form and develop the mind, spirit, and body of our students.
Background Statement

Lexington Catholic High School represents a long tradition of Catholic education in the Bluegrass Region. The school was formed in 1951 through the merger of two secondary schools, St. Catherine's Academy, founded in 1823, and Lexington Latin High, founded in 1924. LCHS moved from its location on Limestone to its new address on Clays Mill in 1957.

Impact Statement  

Exemplar Scholars Program - In addition to its advanced academic path, the Lexington Catholic High School Exemplar Scholars Program is designed to take our most talented math, science, and technology students out of the traditional classroom and expose them to a wide range of experiential opportunities. In doing so, the intent of the program is to provide the best possible education to our most gifted math and science students by allowing them to experience research and internship opportunities at an unprecedented level.

Needs Statement
1. Funding for tuition assistance for students, with a goal of at least $1 million per year in funds distributed with a long-term goal of $5 million in the recently established Tuition Endowment fund.
2. Implementing a diverse, effective program to address student social and behavioral issues.
3. Greater personnel and equipment resources to prepare LCHS for long-term technology needs.
4. A restructured organization and working partnership with parents in the LCHS community.
5. Funds for a comprehensive, multi-media Lexington Catholic marketing campaign to assist increasing enrollment and promoting the value of a faith-based secondary education.
CEO/Executive Director Statement As we remain steadfastly committed to our mission of nurturing the “Mind, Spirit and Body” of our student community, we’re constantly challenged to maintain a fiscally responsible business model, while concurrently seeking ways to provide an affordable education at Lexington Catholic.
As a private, secondary educational institution, Lexington Catholic High School is entirely self-funded. We’re heavily dependent on the generosity of our families, friends and alumni to help us cover the gap between tuition revenue and the increasing costs of operating a first-class educational institution. In addition to the modest annual tuition increases required to help us cover rising operating costs, we are even more dependent on donations to provide the quality academic and extracurricular programs currently expected at our school.
Despite these challenges, we are fully committed to securing funding through a variety of avenues to support a tuition assistance program that provides a Catholic faith-based academic opportunity for morestudents in financially challenged families.

We are addressing this challenge with an aggressive development effort to generate increased giving to our annual Tuition Assistance Fund and recently established Tuition Assistance Endowment Fund. Revenues from both sources will be used to provide a deeper pool of funds available to families in need of financialassistance.

Like most schools in the country, we experience many of the challenging social dynamics inherent in any school. Lexington Catholic is taking firm steps in addressing current issues and has implemented proactive programs to address the serious concerns of incivility, disrespect, social and racial bias and bullying. We are committed to offering every student a quality academic, faith-based and social community that is welcoming, safe and nurturing in every way.

These issues are being addressed by establishing a “house system” within our school community. This program approaches school activities, student governance and interaction in an alternative manner to the traditional class system. In lessening social barriers and the delineating aspects of a traditional high school structure, we hope to provide a basis for a more positively interacting school community. Additionally, in fall, 2010, we introduced Champions UKnighted, our version of a big brother/big sister program designed to better assimilate freshmen students into their first year at Lexington Catholic.
We have also instituted a new faculty-oriented Culture and Climate committee as a means of involving our school adult community in discussing social and behavioral issues and concerns and assisting in developing efforts to improve them.

Last, but certainly not least, is our resolve to continue and improve upon the long, proud history of success we have in preparing our students for their personal, spiritual and educational lives as Lexington Catholic graduates. We take very seriously the responsibility of caring for the Mind, Spirit and Body of each of our students during this important time in their lives.
