Vision and Mission
Cardinal O'Hara High School will serve as a national Catholic leader in the education, spiritual formation and leadership development of young people.
To develop graduates of character, competence and confidence who are prepared to lead in this world and live forever in the next. The future of Cardinal O’Hara has never been brighter. Our vision and mission statements provide the foundation for our aggressive strategic plan. Having successfully completed 50 years of providing an exceptional Catholic educational experience for students in Delaware County - and beyond - we now embark on “the next 50 years.” Responding to the ever-changing worlds of education and technology, the economy and the workplace, and meeting the challenge of society increasingly drifting astray from any moral anchor, O’Hara has set a course for providing a formational experience equal to none. Education, spiritual formation and leadership development are the defining elements. Focusing on the individual growth of each student in these three areas, we will stay true to our mission of developing graduates of character, competence and confidence, and to our vision of serving as a national leader as we set the example for others to emulate. This is the O’Hara way.
