Catholic High Campus #07c - Fr Becheras (700px)Catholic High School (CHS) is one of Singapore’s highly regarded institutions under the auspices of the Catholic Archdiocese. It is a Catholic institution but takes in both Catholic and non-Catholic students.

Founded in 1935 by the late Rev. Fr. Edward Becheras, a French missionary, the school had her humble beginnings within the premises of the Church of St Peter and Paul at Queen Street. CHS relocated to its present site in Bishan in 1992 to cope with the demand for places.

Reverend Father Becheras envisioned the school as an institution of learning, and also one for acquiring competence in bilingualism. His enunciation – The way of the Catholic High School is a way made of two rails – Chinese and English, free from any entanglement, straight to its end. Happy are those who follow. They shall obtain the scope of a sound education remains firmly as a cornerstone of the school’s philosophy.

As a Special Assistance Plan (SAP) school, CHS is grounded in the philosophy of bilingualism and biculturalism. Offering the unique Dual Track model with both the O-Level Programme (OP) and Integrated Programme (IP), the CHS experience offers a curriculum strong in academic distinctions, leadership and character development, and sports and aesthetics excellence. In over 80 years’ of educating students, CHS has nurtured a crop of leaders and professionals in various fields who give back to society and our school.

In this 21st century, all students in our OP and IP tracks continue to benefit from our forward-looking curriculum centred on developing 21st century competencies such as critical and creative thinking, civic literacy as well as communication skills, through inquiry-based learning, research and passion pursuits. Our IP students will spend their first 4 years in CHS before progressing to the new Eunoia Junior College to complete the IP.
