Welcome to Cardinal Ritter High School! I am blessed to have been a part of the Cardinal Ritter community for the past 11 years, and I look forward to you experiencing all of the gifts this wonderful Catholic school has to offer. From dedicated teachers and staff to a wide variety of extra curricular activities in Catholic faith formation, fine arts, and athletics, our students are given a life-changing gift when their families make the choice to send them to Cardinal Ritter High School.
The namesake of our school, Cardinal Joseph Ritter, had this to say about Catholic schools: “Our schools are not established in order to separate Catholics from all others or to guard our boys and girls from the life outside; rather they are set up so that parents, priests, religious, and lay Catholics, of their own free will and with great sacrifice, might better serve both God and mankind. For Catholic schools should be of great service for the communities in which they live and for human society itself. Otherwise, they would be unworthy of the name ‘Catholic schools.’” Please know that we take this mission of being a worthy Catholic school very seriously!
If you are new to the Cardinal Ritter community or are considering joining us in the future, our hope is this website will give you greater insight about the quality of education that takes place at Cardinal Ritter on a daily basis. We also invite you to visit our campus for a first-hand experience of the vibrant school community located in the West Deanery of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.
May God Bless the current and future students of Cardinal Ritter High School!
