The Board of Trustees is pleased to present the school’s long-term strategic plan. Led by Doug Whelan ’68, the strategic plan was adopted in February 2018. 

The purpose of initiating this long range strategic planning process is to DEFINE WHERE WE ARE, DETERMINE WHERE WE WANT TO BE, AND SET TARGET GOALS FOR GETTING THERE.  This process will ensure that we remain focused on a set of targeted goals leading to a stronger more vital catholic high school institution.  Achieving our goals will make Cardinal O’Hara widely recognized as delivering an outstanding co-educational catholic education program to our students.  Strategic planning is all about, “What Gets Measured Gets Done”.
