Mission, Values & Vision

Archbishop Hannan High School is an educational ministry of the Archdiocese of New Orleans. Knowing that parents and guardians are the primary educators, the Archbishop Hannan administrators, teachers, staff, and coaches and moderators, work in partnership with parents and guardians to help Hannan students develop a conscious and active faith life that will inspire them to leadership in the Church and service to the community.

Through an academically rigorous education and Christ-centered formation, we prepare and inspire our students to think critically, act with compassion and integrity, and respond as servant leaders to the needs of a complex world.
