For 60 years, Archbishop Moeller High School has been working toward one Mission – Catholic. Marianist. Forming our Students into Remarkable Men. These are men of faith, men of academic excellence, and men of character.


This formation began at the very beginning with the first principal, Brother Lawrence Eveslage, S.M., who created a culture rooted in the Marianist tradition. Through honoring the characteristics of Faith Formation, Academic Excellence, Service to Others, Family Spirit, and the ability to Adapt for Life, Brother Eveslage laid the foundation for Moeller to be the leader in educating young men.


It was, however, Archbishop Karl Alter, who had the vision of a new school. He appointed Monsignor McCarthy and Brother Sibbing, S.M., to supervise the planning and construction of a new school. This school was to be named Archbishop Moeller High School – living tribute to the Reverend Fourth Archbishop of the Cincinnati Archdiocese, the Most Reverend Henry Moeller.


Archbishop Moeller High School opened its doors in September 1960 to freshmen drawn from 15 parishes in the northeastern part of greater Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
