Bishop McNamara Stories

Every Bishop McNamara student has a unique story to tell. This evolving series celebrates our students' uniqueness by highlighting different aspects of life at Bishop McNamara.

Act of Kindness Second Nature to Student

While attending a recent home football game, Edwin showed a random act of kindness that – to him – was just second nature. To the woman he helped, it was a moment she’ll remember forever.

At Bishop McNamara, we educate the whole student both in and out of the classroom.

Students Empowered to Share Love of Reading

In an effort to share their love of reading with the community, a group of Bishop McNamara students creatively raised money to fund an on-site Lending Library.

At Bishop McNamara, our students are empowered to make a difference in the community.

Catholic Culture Part of the Student-Athlete Experience

Last year, Ben chose to attend Kairos instead of competing in the IHSA Super-Sectional basketball game and had complete support from his team and coaches.

At Bishop McNamara, the athletic journey is about so much more than wins and losses. It's about shaping our students’ character through a strong Catholic culture.
