Bishop Hendricken High School is a Catholic, diocesan, all-male, college preparatory high school located on a suburban 34-acre campus in the Warwick Neck area of Warwick, Rhode Island. Founded in 1959, and named in honor of the first Roman Catholic Bishop of Providence, Thomas Francis Hendricken, the school was administered by the Holy Cross Brothers from its founding until 1971 and by the Congregation of Christian Brothers until 2011. Currently, the school's faculty is composed of both lay and religious. The school enrolls a student body of over 900 students in grades 8 to 12 from Rhode Island, Connecticut and Southeastern Massachusetts. The school offers college preparatory courses at four academic levels.
The President is the Head of School and Chief Executive. The President leads the school community—students, parents, alumni, administration, faculty, staff and friends of the school—promoting and advancing its mission, ministry, vision, philosophy, Roman Catholic faith and spirituality of Blessed Edmund Rice. The work of the President encompasses strategic thinking, leading and facilitating multi-year planning, financial stewardship, board leadership, fundraising, development, communications, and public relations. The next President must be a faith-filled Catholic. He or she must be an entrepreneurial leader with a vision for new possibilities, who while embracing enduring traditions can create opportunities for growth and long-term institution building, expand resources and develop networks of collaboration. The President is appointed by the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence and reports to the Superintendent of Catholic Schools.
