The School

Founded in 1941, as independent, all-boys, Catholic High School, Cardinal Hayes High School has been the starting point for academic success and excellence in education for over 29,000 alumni who have earned the proud and prestigious honor of being a “Hayesman.” Located on the Grand Concourse in the South Bronx, Cardinal Hayes is just eight blocks from Yankee Stadium. Hayes was built in the Art Deco style on a strong foundation from stone and earth removed in building the New York City subway tunnels. The school’s mission is to inspire culturally diverse young men through spiritual growth and a rigorous collegiate preparatory program of academics, extra-curricular activities, and personal discipline to become responsible citizens. Now in its seventh decade, Cardinal Hayes continues to accept the challenges of providing a Catholic education in the poorest Congressional District of the United States Congress by emphasizing academic excellence and sound moral teachings, and by instilling a strong sense of leadership in its students.
