Thank you for you interest in joining the community of Bishop O'Connell High School. Established by the six original parishes of Arlington, Virginia, Bishop O'Connell has been educating the youth of the Washington Metropolitan Area since 1957.

Rooted in the traditions of Catholic Education, the faculty and staff are made up of a diverse group of professionals, 70 percent of which hold a masters or doctorate degree. Though we have over 1,100 students, the 11:1 student/teacher ratio fosters a community atmosphere.

It is, however, the Bishop O'Connell students who provide us all with a vibrant, diverse center of academic achievement, social service and fun. Each year our students' academic performance is among the nation's best. The SAT scores are well above the national average and 98 percent of our graduates continue on to higher education. Bishop O'Connell provides academic support for students with documented learning disabilities through the Muller Academic Services Program. The school also offers expanded services so that students with intellectual disabilities can have access to a Catholic education in an inclusive high school environment.
