I would like to know how "catholic" Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas is. Are most teachers faithful to the magisterium? Do they even know what it is?

Thanks, Helen

Since the Magisterium is the teaching office of the Church, and consists of the Pope and Bishops and their teachings, how in the heck would anyone here know what the teachers believe and profess with respect to it?

You will have more luck this way == call the Principal and ask him. Beyond that, get on the waiting list to get your kids in.

I know there are many, many non-Catholics there - don't know if that helps or hurts.

Default pretty Catholic

I graduated from Bishop Lynch three years ago, so I can attest that I never had a theology teacher who contradicted teachings of the Church. I currently attend the University of Dallas, a conservative Catholic university, and have several friends majoring in theology, so I believe I have a firm understanding of what Catholic theology entails. My teachers always encouraged debate, in order to ensure that we could defend our faith, and to foster understanding of our beliefs. Approximately a third of the school was non-Catholic when I attended, so the debates tended to be lively. If that is an uncomfortable idea, then a more conservative school such as The Highlands might be a better option. I don't know how the theology program compares to Jesuit and Ursuline.

That said, I loved my time at Bishop Lynch and would recommend the school to anyone.

I think for Catholic schools it depends largely on what group is "sponsoring" or running the school. My high school was run by the Brothers of the Holy Cross, who also run the University of Notre Dame. They emphasize scholarship, athletics, and community service as well as the theology. Jesuit schools are supposed to be more academically focused due to the hard requirements it takes to become a Jesuit priest. So you might ask which order sponsors Bishop Lynch and also how many teachers are priests, brothers, sisters, or nuns.
