Bishop Kelly High School opened its doors on September 1, 1964, following the closure of its predecessor Saint Teresa’s Academy. Named for Bishop Edward Kelly, BK was founded on the mission of developing high school students in the Catholic tradition – spirit, mind and body.
In our 50 year history, Bishop Kelly has educated approximately 6,500 students. Among the ranks of the “Alumknights” you’ll find doctors, scientists, teachers, authors, artists, professional athletes, policy makers, entrepreneurs, CEO’s, vowed religious leaders, decorated military heroes, devoted parents, and everything in-between. Additionally we count thousands of past parents and supporters of Bishop Kelly among our BK family. Once a Knight, always a Knight!
