  • 100 Years of Building Better Men

    Since its founding in 1923 by Bishop James J. Hartley, St. Charles Preparatory School has offered young men the challenge to take part in a tradition of excellence. Serving students in grades nine through twelve, St. Charles has continually provided the opportunity to grow in Christian manhood, to prepare for advanced study, and to develop as well-rounded individuals. Over the years, the school has been proud of its more than 7,060 graduates who have responded to the challenge.

    In colleges and universities, in business and professions, in the Church and in society, the St. Charles man stands out as one dedicated to excellence, a habit he learned and lived during his high school years. As nearly four generations of young men have come and gone to St. Charles, the courtyards and playing fields, classrooms and chapels have watched a tradition grow.

    Many people consider high school to be one of the important centers of their lives. When a teenager's days at school have always emphasized excellence, surely he is invited to a tradition he can be proud of and carry on throughout his life.  

Our Mission

St. Charles is an all-boys college preparatory Catholic high school of the Diocese of Columbus, Ohio, that instills in its graduates the importance of prayer, faith, service, character and hard work in an environment that values diversity, accountability and excellence and that creates an enduring tradition of brotherhood. The same leadership remains faithful to the century-old promise of its founder, Bishop James J. Hartley, that an exceptional education be provided to every young man willing to accept the challenge of studying at St. Charles, regardless of background or means.
