Dear Friend,

Welcome to the Cardinal Hayes High School Website! We are pleased to introduce you to the spirit, the enthusiasm and life that make Cardinal Hayes High School such a special place for our students, faculty and staff.

As an independent, all-boys, Catholic High School, founded in 1941 and located within the Archdiocese of New York, Hayes has been the starting point for academic success and excellence in education for over 29,000 of our alumni who have earned the proud and prestigious name of being a “Hayesman”. Our students are given a challenging and rigorous curriculum enabling them to prepare themselves for their future endeavors with confidence and trust that they are ready for the challenges they will face in the world.

Our school is blessed to have state-of-the-art technology in all of our classrooms, a study library, computer labs, a chapel and athletic facilities for our extra-curricular activities. The success of Hayes stems from a strong faculty and support of alumni that are dedicated to the success of each and every student. We are truly blessed to be able to best prepare our students who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and possess a multitude of talents. They will be given every opportunity for a bright future by the challenging and high standards of our curriculum.

God Bless,

Father Joseph P. Tierney
