About Hannan

Archbishop Hannan High School is a Catholic, coeducational, college preparatory high school serving students in grades 8 -12, located in Covington, Louisiana. Inspired by the life and ministry of Archbishop Philip Hannan, the school embodies a commitment to fostering faith, inspiring academic excellence, and developing character in every student. With a maximum enrollment of 550 students, the school is large enough to provide a broad college preparatory curriculum and extracurricular programs, while still able to foster a family-like environment where young men and women find the inspiration to grow – spiritually, intellectually, physically and creatively.

We challenge our students with a rigorous academic program that taps into the abundant talents of a gifted faculty. We offer the kind of extracurricular opportunities that allow every student to explore the full range of his or her interests and talents. And most importantly, we provide opportunities for our students to live out the Gospel message of Jesus Christ and look beyond themselves in response to the needs of those in the world around them.
