Established in 1969, through the consolidation of Chartrand High School and Kennedy Memorial High School, Roncalli today serves over 1,100 students. The majority of students are enrolled in a college preparatory curriculum but the school offers a comprehensive curriculum for students of all levels of ability.
Roncalli has been recognized three times by the U.S. Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School.
Roncalli High School, a co-educational, life-preparatory high school, has a long, rich and proud heritage of Catholic education. Its tradition of service to the southside of Indianapolis extends back more than 100 years with the founding of Sacred Heart High School which, in 1966, was renamed John F. Kennedy Memorial High School.
Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics has partnered with Franciscan Health to provide expert care for training and sports medicine needs of Roncalli's athletes. Forté provides a physician champion to evaluate, care for and help prevent injuries, and Franciscan provides on-site athletic trainers for physical therapy and athletic training. And our Forté Fast Orthopedic Urgent Care is open for acute injuries that may arise for Roncalli High School athletes and their families.
Although any of the highly skilled Forté orthopedic and sports medicine specialists are available to Roncalli athletes, Andrew Wohler, MD serves as the school's physician champion.
