Commitment to Excellence

Portsmouth Catholic Regional School continues the century-old tradition of Catholic education in the Portsmouth area. Portsmouth Catholic has been carrying on that tradition since 1954.  Our mission facilitates the spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, and physical development of the whole child. The values of faith, academics and service, nurtured by a staff dedicated to teach as Jesus did, encourage our students to respond personally to the call, challenges and commitment of the Christian way of life in the world today and in the future.


Portsmouth Catholic is AdvancED accredited and the Diocese of Richmond is AdvancED accredited as a school system. AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. They are a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED is far from a typical accrediting agency. Their goal isn’t to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools improve. Combining the knowledge and expertise of a research institute, the skills of a management consulting firm and the passion of a grassroots movement for educational change, AdvancED serves as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems—employing more than four million educators and enrolling more than 20 million students—across the United States and 70 other nations.
