From the Principal

Mr. Nolan, Principal


Principal Brian NolanA new school year is upon us at Bishop Grimes, filled with joy, excitement, and a few anxious moments. On behalf of the faculty and staff at Bishop Grimes I offer a warm welcome. We are extremely honored by the trust granted to us in providing a challenging and engaging academic program; and more importantly, providing students the opportunity to build and strengthen their personal relationship with Christ. As a faith community, we are very proud of our Catholic identity.

A new group of 7th graders readies to experience the passion and transformative power of being part of our Catholic community with all the potential it has to offer. As they encounter seniors who are preparing to leave their indelible mark on the school, the Bishop Grimes tradition continues. The new cadre of students prepares to learn and flourish in the traditions kept alive and maintained by their older peers. It is what makes Bishop Grimes so special.

Bishop Grimes is fortunate to have a dedicated and loyal group of faculty and staff members. Our teachers represent the best qualities of highly effective and skilled teachers; high standards of personal performance, dedication to academic rigor and student engagement, and concern for the well-being of all students. Our teachers prioritize their role as Catholic educators by ensuring that students experience Christ on a daily basis, through prayer, service, and faith formation.

Finally, it is my goal to do my best for all of the students, families, teachers/staff – everyone and anyone who is part of our school community. Please contact me with any questions that you may have. I can be reached at 315-437-0356 or at Go Cobras!

Mr. Kinne, Assistant Principal

Greetings and Welcome to Bishop Grimes!img-about-principal-2

As a proud BG alumnus and current parent of a Bishop Grimes student, I am truly blessed and honored to be serving my alma mater as Assistant Principal.

I welcome you to come and explore Bishop Grimes. I know BG to be a school community in which our students are challenged to grow each day in their book knowledge while also building and strengthening their personal relationship with Christ by learning what it means to be a Catholic teenager and follower of Christ in today’s society. I have the privilege of working with a dedicated group of faculty and staff members who push our students to think and excel whether it be in the classroom, lab, chapel, or on the field or stage.

I love Bishop Grimes and am rumored to bleed blue and white. As an alum, BG is a huge part of my life, and my experiences at Bishop Grimes have helped me become the person I am today. I pray each day that our faculty and staff members, students, and Bishop Grimes families will be able to experience the passion and transforming power that being part of the Bishop Grimes community has the potential to bring.

Finally, it is also my goal to try to do what is best for all of the students of our school community and to support our teachers, students, and Bishop Grimes families in any and every way that I am able to do so.

Please contact me with any questions that you may have. I can be reached at 315-437-0356 or at Go BG Cobras!
