Learn what makes Badin special!

Choosing a school for your son or daughter can be a difficult decision. The greater Cincinnati region is filled with great options, but each school has their own personality and feel. Badin is proud to be a welcoming community, filled with teachers who have compassion and heart for teaching. Our students thrive in our friendly environment and are encouraged to find their passion through academics, athletics, service and leadership. The opportunities are abundant.

We love that our student population includes both boys and girls. Students learn to collaborate, compete, communicate and work together in a positive environment.

The benefits of Catholic education are abundant.
A faith filled life begins at home and continues with help from the parish family, school and outside activities. Reinforcement of Christian values and morals in everyday classroom settings further establish these roots in young people.
Badin offers a highly structured & disciplined co-ed environment where students learn how to deal with one another just as they will be required to as adults.
Co-education is the most natural and best form of education. Male and female students learn from each other’s approaches and learn to collaborate; each bringing their own style while working toward common goals.

Co-ed environments lead to improved social and personal development. Students are more self-confident, well balanced and better equipped to make new friends than their counterparts in single-sex schools.
Small class sizes enable increased instructor attention to individual needs.

Creative opportunities are available to students in Art, Music and Theater courses throughout the curriculum. The award-winning art program offers numerous classes that put BHS students in galleries throughout Southwest Ohio. The Music program includes the groundbreaking Badin Rocks Ensemble, while the Drama program just staged four plays even in the midst of the pandemic. The show must go on, and does, in the outstanding Fine Arts program at Badin!

Get involved and keep moving with the Rams! More than 90% of our students are engaged in at least one extra-curricular activity. Students have the opportunity to join the following teams:
Fall sports: Cross Country (boys/girls), Golf (boys/girls), Football, Soccer (boys/girls), Girls Tennis, Cheerleading
Winter sports: Basketball (boys/girls), Bowling (boys/girls), Swimming and Diving (boys/girls), Wrestling (boys/girls), Cheerleading

Students are encouraged to Serve God and Serve Others through Badin Campus Ministry. All students participate in a yearly retreat culminating with senior Kairos, a 4-day, three night retreat that has an amazing impact.
Badin offers a four-year intentional service program that begins with realization of the needs in our community and finishes with a senior capstone, where students pair with a non-profit organization to make a difference. In addition there are summer service trips to various cities in the US and an international trip that provide students with the opportunity to change lives through service.
