Mission and Vision Statements
Guided by our Catholic Tradition, Bishop Moore Catholic High School students will develop personally, spiritually, and intellectually to achieve their potential as individuals and leaders within a global society.
The mission of Bishop Moore Catholic High School is to provide the highest quality, affordable secondary education based upon the Gospel message and Roman Catholic teachings. This is accomplished in a Christ-centered environment stressing academic excellence, spiritual growth, personal integrity, community involvement, athletic development, and cultural appreciation.
We believe all students can learn to become productive citizens in our society. Consequently, BMC aims to provide a diversified curriculum in which all students can experience success, discover their personal worth, and develop a clear value system.
We aim to nurture and graduate intellectually competent, ethically mature, physically fit, caring, and self-disciplined students who are prepared to be successful citizens. But we know we can’t accomplish this alone.
At BMC, we thrive on parental involvement and count on alumni, local parishioners, and community members for our existence and the success of our students. As a way of saying “thank you,” we encourage our students and staff to give back to our community through their personal service.
Bishop Moore Catholic High School has a rich legacy of faith. Dating back to the mid-1800s and the inception of the Catholic Church in Florida, Orlando's first bishop, John Moore, advocated for quality in both education and doctrine. Since our founding in 1954, BMC has endeavored to build on the foundation of faith he left us by serving the families of our community with excellence and compassion.
The Eucharist is "the source and summit of the Christian life" (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1324). As such, Christian spirituality flows from the Eucharist as light streams from the sun. We need its Light to grow; it is our nourishment and strength.
The Eucharist is the summit to which our actions are directed. In the Eucharist, Christ is ever-present, continually giving Himself to us. We, in return, come to Christ, presenting our lives as a gift on His altar. One way we do that is through serving in the liturgy and our community. For more information or to get involved, please contact our Campus Ministry office.
At BMC, we equip our students to experience success in every area of their lives: personally, spiritually, and academically. Over 14,000 alumni testify to our effectiveness, as do these other statistics:

Bishop Moore Catholic opened its doors in 1954 and has seen many traditions come and go since that time. But one thing has not changed—the importance of our Catholic faith as celebrated in school-wide liturgies and prayer before class.
During their time at BMC, students will also participate in:
- Freshman orientation
- School assemblies
- Spirit drives
- Community service projects
- Junior/Senior prom
- Grad Night
- Senior Awards Day
- Baccalaureate and graduation
Faith is an integral part of who we are and what we do.
Our faith is a two-way street leading us from the Eucharist, out into the world of daily life, and then back home to the Eucharist after serving in the world.
As a Catholic school, the celebration of the Eucharist is at the center of our Catholic identity. From this source and summit flows our life of prayer, learning, and service. It is critical that our students, their families, and our staff participate in the liturgy within their own parishes on Sundays and holy days of obligation.
