A Catholic, co-educational, college preparatory school, it is part of an association of 11 schools in the U.S., England and the Philippines conducted in the educational tradition of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart.

The school incorporates a dynamic Campus Ministry Program with a strong service component. Opportunities are available for college credit, Advanced Placement and honors courses in all subjects.
Students are offered a disciplined and nurturing environment for personal and professional development by promoting responsibility, respecting individual potential and encouraging growth in scholarship, leadership and outreach. Each student is known, valued, treasured and taught by faculty in partnership with the family to meet the challenges of a changing world. Full-time guidance counselors are available for academic support, college preparation and personal assistance.
McClancy offers courses in theology and religious values as well as liturgical and community-centered spiritual experiences that mark the major feasts of the Catholic Church.
