Principal’s Message

Bishop Ludden was founded in 1963 as a Catholic college preparatory high school for young men and women in the Western Region of the Syracuse Diocese. Chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, the school is a member of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.

Our curriculum is designed to assist all students, individually. Our goal is to develop the gifts and talents of each student in order to guide them toward realizing their goodness and achieving their highest potential. By stressing the doctrine of Christ’s teachings it is desired that Ludden’s efforts will be the basis for continued growth into adult life, to witness the teachings of Christ. Special emphasis is placed on the teaching of written communication skills, on developing strong study skills and on involving students in creative learning activities to meet the moral, physical, spiritual, intellectual and emotional needs of each student.

Dear Ludden Community and Prospective Families,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the new Bishop Ludden website. As we are undergoing many positive changes within and outside of our school, we are proud to launch a new and improved website to help you learn more about Bishop Ludden. Our plan is to streamline the process and make it easier to learn about us and all that we have to offer.

Bishop Ludden has many traditions to uphold as we move into a new era of education and technology. We are dedicated to serving you in whatever capacity you have come to have a relationship with us: alumni, parent, teacher, or new family. We offer the many facets of Bishop Ludden Jr/Sr High School for you to view. Enjoy our faculty, events, information, and many new and exciting changes as we go forward with our pride in education and service. At Bishop Ludden, we embrace the teachings of Jesus Christ, and follow our mission to work in partnership with our parents, community, and parishes to bring academic excellence and life-long learning to each student who attends Bishop Ludden.

We graciously invite you to join our family. We welcome you to contact us with any questions you may have. Even though we are launching into the future, we want you to know that the personal touch will always be a hallmark of our communication.
