About Nolan

  • A faith-based co-ed college preparatory school with a long tradition of excellence

At Nolan Catholic High School, we believe our most important responsibility is to partner with parents to form their students in the Gospel virtues of faith, hope and charity.

A Nolan Catholic education addresses the whole person: excellent academics, an award-winning fine arts program, championship-level athletics, innovative ecology and engineering programs and more, all built on our Catholic Christian faith.

We know each of us have gifts and talents given to us by God. Nolan Catholic faculty and staff help our students nurture and develop those gifts. Our Vikings are modeled and taught respect, honesty, integrity and scholarly conduct. As a Catholic school of the Diocese of Fort Worth, NCHS forms individuals who are recognizable as Catholic Christians through their acts of faith.

Nolan Catholic continues a tradition that began more than half a century ago: an education based in faith, formation based in hope and perseverance in charity. Nolan Catholic High School students do nothing less than change the world!

We invite you to come and see what makes a Nolan Catholic education different.
