Community Partner Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School

One of our valued Community Partners is Cardinal Wuerl North Catholic High School. We recently talked with Lisa Logan, CWNCHS Director of Marketing and Admissions, about the school and their decision to support Butler Catholic through a Silver Level Partnership.

1) Please tell me about your organization?

In 1939, the Diocese of Pittsburgh founded North Catholic High School on the summit of Troy Hill. The Society of Mary was invited by the Diocese to administer the school and help it grow. CWNCHS is founded in the rich educational tradition of the Roman Catholic diocese of Pittsburgh and the Marianist charism. We welcome students from various communities and faith experiences. Our mission is the formation of Christ-centered young adults who are leaders in their communities, known by their intellectual, practical, ethical and human skills. CWNC provides academic excellence in the context of Gospel values and send graduates out to the world with a global vision recognizing the dignity of every human life, the need to pursue justice and the service of others.

2) How can our BCS families learn more about your organization?

BCS families can learn more about our organization by visiting our website at or by scheduling a tour and shadow day for their son or daughter.

3) Why do you think Catholic education is so important?

Catholic education is so important because it educates the spirit of the student as well as their intellect. It immerses the student in an environment that emphasizes Christian values and courtesy for the other. Catholic education offers an academically challenging environment and one of loyalty and trust among its educators.  As a result, the student’s school becomes a place for them to explore their ideas with sure guidance and support.

4) Why did you decide to become a Butler Catholic School Community Partner?

We became a Butler Catholic School Community Partner because we realize the importance of supporting faith-based education and the mission to instill values of respect and compassion for others.

5) What is the best piece of advice you can give to our students?

The best piece of advice we can offer is to trust God and depend on him. It’s very easy to lose focus and become stressed when school is busy but when you stay committed to prayer, you will find that you can encounter God in every moment of your life.
