Background Information on Cardinal O’Hara High School:

COHS Vision: Cardinal O’Hara High School serves as a national Catholic leader in the education, spiritual formation, and leadership development of young people.

COHS Mission: To develop graduates of character, competence, and confidence who are prepared to lead in this world and live forever in the next.

COHS’ vision and mission statements provide the foundation for the school’s aggressive strategic plan. Having successfully completed 50 years of providing an exceptional Catholic educational experience for students in Delaware County – and beyond – they now embark on “the next 50 years.” Responding to the ever-changing worlds of education and technology, the economy and the workplace, and meeting the challenge of society increasingly drifting astray from any moral anchor, COHS has set a course for providing a formational experience equal to none. Education, spiritual formation, and leadership development are the defining elements. Focusing on the individual growth of each student in these three areas, COHS will stay true to their mission of developing graduates of character, competence and confidence, and to the school’s vision of serving as a national leader as they set the example for others to emulate. This is the O’Hara way.
