These are great days to be Knights!

Welcome to Alter High School!  Thanks for taking the time to look over our website and discover, in just a few short clicks, why our comprehensive, co-educational, Catholic high school is so well postured for it's next 50 years!  The Alter experience goes far beyond our website, so take a closer look at just what makes the Alter community so unique.


Archbishop Alter High School, in Kettering OH, a suburb of Dayton, is owned and operated by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. We are a community that is founded in faith, preserved with pride and sustained by spirit. Our tremendous faculty and staff, as well as the greater Alter community, model these principles in our classrooms and across the campus, and our incredible students and alumni live them in their everyday lives.


Alter High School was founded in 1962 and since then, its graduates have become leaders in all walks of life.  Our faith, and the practice and promotion of it, is important to campus life. It is imperative that our students receive a high quality academic experience, and that they are morally and ethically grounded. They must understand and model the importance of service for others, respect the life and dignity of others, are good stewards of the earth, and understand, share and live their faith each day.


Alter has a proud tradition of excellence both inside and outside the classroom. We are preserved with pride based on our faculty and students accomplishments, both in the past and today. We look to the future with a vision and strategic plan that promotes excellence in all we do. You will be hard-pressed to find an academic experience to rival that which is afforded to our students. Athletically, we have achieved great success on the fields and courts, and, although we are proud of that, we strive to improve each day to ensure that our tradition of excellence will continue for future classes.


Finally, we are sustained by spirit. The spirit of community at Alter is palpable and it is felt in our classrooms, by our parent volunteers, by our alumni, but, perhaps most importantly, by those who are merely witnesses to the Alter community in action. Our student body exudes spirit at pep rallies, at sporting events, and service activities, all while showing great sportsmanship and support for their peers. In perhaps the most humbling manifestation of the Alter spirit there is, the spirit of giving is alive and well at Alter High School. We marvel at how the Alter community has seemingly limitless time, talent, and treasures.


We are an incredible school. See for yourself here, but come visit us in person!  Thank you for taking the time to see what we have to offer.
