Machebeuf among top-50 schools
Bishop Machebeuf High School was inducted into the Cardinal Newman Society’s Catholic High School Honor Roll last week for excellence in academics, Catholic identity and civics education.
It’s the fourth time the Denver archdiocesan school has earned a spot among the top-50 Catholic high schools in the honor roll out of some 1,300 applicants.
Machebeuf is also the only Colorado school to receive the honor in 2012-2013. Holy Family High School in Broomfield made the top-50 ranking in 2010-2011 and received a special recognition for its excellence in academics in 2012-2013.
“It is a true testimony to the daily commitment of rediscovering the Catholic intellectual tradition that our academic community of faith brings to the classroom and to the development of each student’s ability to live out their faith in the public square,” said Machebeuf principal Jessie Skipwith.
The biennial award is a program of the Newman Society, whose mission is to help renew and strengthen Catholic identity in Catholic higher education.
Machebeuf has 360 students enrolled in its ninth- through 12th-grade classes. The school opened in 1958 and is named after the first bishop of Denver.
