It can be tough for freshmen at any school to find their place in their new home. To help with this transition, Bishop Manogue Catholic High School created the Miners 101 program. This program encompasses the four pillars of our mission: Faith, Leadership, Knowledge, and Compassion. The Miners 101 Program is rooted in the care for the whole person, it connects incoming families with a New Student Advocate.

Our New Student Advocate welcomes students after acceptance and supports their transition into Bishop Manogue Catholic High School. Throughout the year, the New Student Advocate helps students to develop a deeper sense of personal identity and communal belonging in order to grow. New students are also partnered with upperclassmen who are able to help new students in their transition to BMCHS.


Retreats help students deepen their knowledge of themselves and create community with peers and teachers. We offer several retreats throughout the school year to deepen student’s faith and interact with their peers. You can find more information on retreats here.


The Miners 101 program connects new students with the Associated Student Body (student government), Campus Ministry, and other co-curricular programs.


This program helps new students and families transition from to Bishop Manogue Catholic High School through parent and student information sessions, providing the knowledge requisite to prepare for the first day of school.


In partnership with other on-campus programs, the New Student Advocate organizes and facilitates social activities.
