Our History 
 
Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School and Academy has a rich history of catering to the needs of students both spiritually and academically. With more than 60 years of Catholic education taking place in the same building, Cardinal Stritch has a rich history in forming disciples of Jesus Christ and preparing students for college and careers.
 

The Beginning 

Bishop George J. Rehring first broke ground for Stritch on September 21, 1960. The school became the sixth Catholic school in Metro-Toledo and is the only Catholic high school on the East Side of the city. The school was named after Cardinal Samuel Stritch, Toledo’s second Bishop who served from 1921 to 1930.

The school sits on a twenty-acre site. The building originally built to house Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School currently houses both the high school and academy.
