Advancement / Alumni Relations

Advancing the mission of Cardinal O’Hara High School:
To provide a holistic Catholic-Christian environment that addresses the uniqueness of the individual in a total community of learners.

Cardinal O’Hara has a dedicated commitment to academic excellence and helping all students grow intellectually and spiritually so they can realize their full potential.  These values have laid the foundation for the success of many of our alumni.  Cardinal O’Hara respects the individuality of each student.  Trust, openness, and acceptance provide an atmosphere where true education can take place, educating the total person.

Cardinal O’Hara’s Advancement Office utilizes programs in advancement, alumni, and public relations, to continually build relationships within the school and greater community.  The Advancement Office strives to reinforce the school’s image and communicate the ideals and principles COHS represents while engaging volunteer support from within the community to support its endeavors.  Additionally, the Advancement Department oversees all alumni relations efforts.
