About SHDHS

Thank you for visiting Saint Henry District High School (SHDHS). As Northern Kentucky’s largest Catholic coeducational high school, we believe that every student benefits from our personalized approach to education. The faculty, administration, and staff of SHDHS endeavor to respect individual differences, thereby discovering and developing the special talents of our students. Within our Christian community, we strive to promote each student’s personal freedom, thus encouraging students to assume the responsibility for his/her own development. Only through experiencing freedom can a student be trained in responsibility.

At SHDHS, students have the opportunity to take part in the life of the school, its discipline, and all its operations. By promoting the welfare of SHDHS as a whole, we aim to build within our students a positive attitude toward taking responsibility for their learning. We also acknowledge that parents are the primary educators of their children. At SHDHS, parents share their responsibility with teachers competently trained to guide students as they develop their God-given talents. A coordinated effort between parents and teachers is the key to ensuring a successful high school experience for each and everyone of our students.

Since every man of whatever race, condition, and age is endowed with the dignity of a person, he has an inalienable right to an education corresponding to his proper destiny and suited to his native talents, his sex, his cultural background, and his ancestral heritage. At the same time, this education should pave the way to brotherly association with other peoples so that genuine unity and peace on earth may be promoted. For a true education aims at the formation of the human person with respect to the good of those societies of which, as a man, he is a member, and in whose responsibilities, as an adult, he will share.
