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 31, 2014.

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”.

Be Well. 
Thank You
