About Us

At Bishop McNamara, we prepare students for the next step whether that be kindergarten, junior high, high school, college, or beyond. 

We do this by educating the whole child: mind, body, and spirit. Your child is an individual and we know that character building is an essential part of their education.

Our Past

At Bishop McNamara, we're proud of our history because it has resulted in meaningful traditions that have shaped who we are as a school family today.
