President's Message

Welcome to Bishop Mora Salesian High School!
 
"It is not enough that you love the young; they must know that they are loved" - St. John Bosco
 
Many years ago, when I first set foot on the Salesian campus as a student, I never imagined returning as a staff member, much less the president, of our beloved school. I still remember walking through the same hallways the students roam today and, in a couple of instances, receiving important academic and life lessons from a few of the same teachers. What a joy it is to serve my alma mater!
 
As the president of Bishop Mora Salesian High School I accept the responsibility of ensuring that we continue to build on the great work of my predecessors in loving and caring for our school community. I look forward to a strong 2018-19 school year, one in which our students continue to see the immense love and care that our school community has for them.
 
If you are new to our community, I encourage you to visit our school and meet our principal, teachers and staff, take a look at our facilities and, most importantly, speak with our students. I am sure you will find, just as I have, that our young men are a part of a close-knit family. If you are an alumnus looking to reconnect, come visit us as well - we would love to give you a tour of the campus and hear about your experiences as a student.
 
If you are unable to visit, I invite you to peruse the pages of this website to discover everything that makes our school community unique.  Within these pages you will find that the great spirit of our patron saint, St. John Bosco, permeates everything that we do for the young men entrusted to our care. 
 
We are Salesian - today, tomorrow, and forever.
