Cardinal Ritter High School

Cardinal Ritter is a Catholic high school entrusted by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and the parishes of the West Deanery to provide, within a college preparatory curriculum, the highest standards of academic excellence to students of diverse socioeconomic, racial and religious backgrounds. Cardinal Ritter challenges its students to grow spiritually, intellectually, athletically, and artistically. The Cardinal Ritter community values and fosters the unique intellectual, cultural, social, and physical gifts of each student. As followers of Christ, we encourage our students to share their gifts and talents in service to others.


 Spending a day with students at Cardinal Ritter High School is a great way for interested students to get a first hand day-long experience on the campus of Cardinal Ritter High School. The program runs throughout the school year, by appointment. Prospective students will be hosted throughout the day by a current Cardinal Ritter student who is qualified to speak on the various aspects and programs at Cardinal Ritter High School.
