Bishop Ludden Junior-Senior High School was founded in 1963 as a Catholic college preparatory high school for young men and women in the Western Region of the Syracuse Diocese.  Chartered by the New York State Board of Regents, the school is a member of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. 

Our curriculum is designed to assist all students.  Our goal is to develop the gifts and talents of each student in order to guide each student toward realizing their goodness and achieving their highest potential.  By stressing the doctrine of Christ’s teachings it is desired that Ludden’s efforts will be the basis for continued growth into adult life-to witness the teachings of Christ.  Special emphasis is placed on the teaching of written communication skills, on developing strong study skills, and on involving students in creative learning activities to meet the moral, physical, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional needs of each student.
