Welcome to Bishop Hendricken High School!
Bishop Hendricken High School was named after the first Bishop of Providence, The Most Reverend Thomas F. Hendricken, and founded in 1959. As we approach our 60th year, we look back with profound gratitude on all of the blessings that God has bestowed on this journey. From its earliest days until now, Bishop Hendricken High School has maintained its reputation as one of the finest Catholic, college preparatory high school in New England. Our mission is to prepare young men to enter the world as faithful members of the community making a difference by their faith and their virtuous lives. Each day, the classrooms of this high school resonate with excellence as our students are challenged to excel, and our many activities, from our spiritual programs, to our athletic and fine arts programs, to our community service, continue to achieve success and help to develop our Hendricken men in their relationship with God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
As the new President, beginning my first term in January 2019, I am excited by the opportunities that are ours, and the challenges ahead. I pledge to you that I will strive to continue to build on the foundation laid for us by the dedicated priests, brothers, faculty, staff and alumni that have gone before us. What a privilege it is to serve and to make this wonderful and august school ready for the future.
While nothing can truly replace the great energy and excitement that one feels when walking anywhere on our Hendricken campus, we tried to capture that warm and faith-filled spirit here online. If you are an alumni who is looking to reconnect with classmates or teachers, a current parent or student, or maybe even a prospective family, please stroll through these pages and take in the Hendricken spirit, rich in tradition and growing each day.
Take a look around, ask your friends, neighbors, and alumni about Hendricken, and come and see the magic that is ours as we help young men become the leaders of tomorrow, steeped in faith, keen intellect, and virtue.
God bless and your loved ones,
Fr. Robert L. Marciano ’75
