With origins dating to 1858, Cardinal Newman School, a diocesan, coeducational, college preparatory secondary school serving grades 7 through 12, exists for the purpose of providing Catholic education of the highest quality to children of residents of the greater Columbia community. With an emphasis on the Catholic tradition of education - strong academics, a dedication to service, and traditional Catholic, Christian values, Cardinal Newman School provides a safe and structured environment which challenges all students to achieve personal excellence in every way. Inspired by the community belief in divine providence and love, Cardinal Newman students will become self-disciplined learners who also demonstrate respect, integrity, responsibility, and a sense of justice as they prepare to live lives of truth, integrity, and fidelity – VERITAS, INTEGRITAS, FIDELITAS.
