Nerinx Hall students make their mark on the world. Go Markers!

As a Catholic, college-preparatory high school for young women founded by the Sisters of Loretto, Nerinx Hall is grounded by three assumptions: women must know themselves and their world; diversity enriches and trust empowers; and women are called to deliberate Christian action.

Nerinx Hall is guided by the Loretto School Values of faith, community, justice, and respect. Nerinx offers a loving community of faith that nurtures individual gifts, enlivens spirits, and reveals a world where hope prevails. The school gives students responsibility and freedom, empowering them to own their place in the world and to use their talents to make a difference.

Nerinx Hall students develop the skills and knowledge needed for success in college and beyond. Students challenge themselves by choosing from an array of honors courses, AP classes, and college credit courses. Learning at Nerinx Hall is enhanced through a recognized fine arts program, 1:1 laptop program, robust athletics with 30 teams across 12 sports, and extensive co-curricular options including 50 clubs. Nerinx Hallís Service Learning Program challenges students to respond to areas of deep human need. Through Campus Ministry, Nerinx Hall incorporates spirituality as an active and empowering experience central to student life.

Nerinx Hall believes that educated, caring, empowered young women are essential to the world. Nerinx students are independent thinkers united by strong convictions, and as enthusiastic about the questions as the answers. In this community of learners, students respect differences of opinion and believe in each personís potential.
