Thank you for visiting the Bishop Ford
Central Catholic High School Website.
After 52 years of tending to the spiritual, educational, physical and
social development of the youth of Brooklyn, Bishop Ford Central
Catholic High School has ceased operation as a school as of August
The period from 1962 to 2014 was one marked by a tradition of
academic and athletic excellence here in Park Slope. For several
generations the vision and charism of the Franciscan Brothers, the
many dedicated religious and lay men and women, together with the
inspiration of Bishop Francis X. Ford have provided thousands of
young men and women with not only an excellent education, but also a
firm moral and spiritual foundation. So despite the fact that Bishop
Ford has ceased to operate as a school, its’ influence, through the
Alumnae/Alumni will continue to impact Brooklyn and the world.
In closing, on behalf of the Franciscan Brothers of Brooklyn, the
many communities of Sisters such as the Sisters of Mercy and the
Dominican Sisters, the Board of Trustees, the Faculty,
Administrators, Secretaries, Coaches, Moderators, Custodians and
Kitchen Staff, we congratulate our recent graduates and thank our
Alumnae/Alumni for their support over these many years. We also thank
the parents and families of Brooklyn for entrusting their children to
our educational care and nurturing.
We wish you much health and peace.
Finally, to all members of the Bishop Ford Community, remember the
words of St. Francis of Assisi who said “Go – Preach the Gospel at
all times – and when necessary use words”.
