From Middle through High School, Bishop Gorman’s rigorous liberal arts curriculum prepares students for success at the collegiate level and beyond with its attention to primary source texts and the cultivation of critical thinking skills.
At the Middle School level, traditional courses become supplemented with opportunity for participation in the Private Schools Interscholastic Association (PSIA) academic competition as well as the annual Academic Fair, where students can highlight projects based on the subject of their choice.
An innovative mentoring program is built into high school courses and anchored by the English and Theology departments. Freshman and Sophomores study together to provide support for those entering high school, while Juniors take English classes alongside Seniors to prepare them for the demands of the college application process that begins the summer before Senior year. In addition, a rich diverse arts program allows students to cultivate talents in orchestra, photography, visual arts, cinematography, choir, or drama. Various Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) academic competitions extend studies beyond the classroom.
Bishop Gorman also offers numerous Advanced Placement and Dual Credit courses, which continue to produce award-winning students in a school focused on academic excellence.
