Welcome to our website! Founded in 1901 as Our Lady of Good Counsel, Bishop Dunne Catholic School is a Catholic college preparatory school that serves a diverse, multicultural community in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. We provide a unique, accelerated educational program that is shaped by fundamental Catholic values and prepares students for higher learning, leadership, service, and citizenship.
Bishop Dunne has always been a school that explores new horizons. Our core values are anchored in the charisms of the school’s founding orders, the Sisters of St. Mary of Namur and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart: spiritual growth and faith development; academic excellence in an innovative and creative environment; formation in a positive and nurturing environment; commitment to fellowship, social justice and community service; appreciation of individual uniqueness and value; commitment to social and civic responsibilities and to global leadership; and service to a multicultural community. As a very progressive and innovative school with one of the nation’s best technology programs, we also are committed to real-world problem solving, collaboration, flexibility, and creativity. We recognize that students are individuals who learn in different ways, and we create conditions for all to succeed and to discover and build on their strengths and passions.
Bishop Dunne students chart their course from middle school through college and into the world with confidence, direction, and integrity. They are well grounded in their academics and unique in their appreciation of community, values, social justice, and leadership. Their compass is their faith and their preparation is their foundation for each important step in their exciting voyage of discovery throughout life.
