Bishop Manogue is committed to preparing each of its students for higher education through a rigorous college prep curriculum. We are also equally committed to addressing the needs of students requiring special services through our Integrated Learning Center and fostering the spiritual growth of all students through our Campus Ministry Program.

Fostering a culture of excellence and continuous improvement is a shared goal of administration, faculty and students. The educational philosophy of everyone at Bishop Manogue includes the belief that what we do must make a significant difference in the lives of our students.

Our College Prep Curriculum

Courses designed to prepare students to meet the minimum subject requirements of the Nevada System of Higher Education, University of California and California State University Systems are an integral part of the Bishop Manogue academic program. However, most of our students progress well beyond these minimum requirements by taking advantage of the many higher-level courses and academic opportunities offered:
