In 2008-2009, Bishop Hendricken High School launched the Brother Thomas R. Leto Options Program, which was partially funded by a generous donation from a Hendricken benefactor. Brother Leto recognized the need to educate ALL young men, and his vision provided students with special needs the “option” of benefiting from a Catholic Christian education.
The Options Pilot program served two young men. One year later, six students benefited from this special program; today our numbers continue to grow as we provide students an opportunity to prepare for a successful life after high school.
Bishop Hendricken is the fifth Catholic high school in the U.S. with such a program, and the first single-sex school of its kind.
