Mr. John A. Jackson ’71, President  

Welcome to Bishop Hendricken High School!

Founded in 1959, Bishop Hendricken High School was named after the first Bishop of the Diocese of Providence, Thomas F. Hendricken. Over the past 50 years, Hendricken has established itself as one of the finest Catholic, college preparatory schools for young men in New England.  Our mission, to bring each and every member of our community into a closer relationship with God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is at the forefront of everything that we do.

Each day I am humbled and proud to be in a place that is known for its academic excellence, dedicated faculty and staff, community spirit and talented young men. As President, I continuously strive to enhance our school community so that when any Hendricken student, teacher, parent, alumni or benefactor visits our school, they too will be filled with pride. 

While nothing can truly replace the energy and excitement one feels when walking through the doors at Bishop Hendricken High School, we have tried to capture the warmth and spirit of our campus community here online.  If you are an alumni who is looking to reconnect with classmates or teachers, a current parent or student, or a prospective family, please stroll these pages and take in all that Hendricken has to offer:  Ours is a school that is rich in tradition, but ever evolving.

So I invite you to take a look around, talk to friends, neighbors, and alumni about Hendricken.  We have a proud tradition of producing young men of fine character, high intellect, and a deep social conscience, and we invite you to join us!

God Bless,
John A. Jackson ’71
