Since 1950 Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School has provided the highest quality secondary education in greater Oklahoma City. The school embraces a traditional Catholic school curriculum in the core subjects of English, mathematics, science, social studies, theology, and foreign language, with the integration of fine arts and practical studies alongside a comprehensive athletic and extracurricular experience.


Bishop McGuinness Catholic High School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, ethnicity, national origin, or disability in the administration of its educational policies, or athletic and other school-administered programs, including student admission.

Incoming Freshmen

Incoming ninth-grade students are required to take the Bishop McGuinness high school placement exam in the fall preceding the desired year of admission. Registration for a placement exam can be found here. Along with teacher recommendations, data from previous standardized tests, and face-to-face discussions, the placement exam informs the building of a challenging curriculum individualized to your student’s needs and interests. After the placement exam has been taken, packets are mailed in January to inform parents of registration nights at which schedules and other important information is discussed.
