Archbishop Thomas J. Murphy High School (AMHS) is a private Catholic, college preparatory school that welcomes students of all faiths. True to the spirit of the gospel, Archbishop Murphy nurtures the full development of the gifts that God has given to each student, fosters service as an outgrowth of faith, and values diversity. Working with parents as partners in the educational ministry, we strive for academic excellence, spiritual enrichment, and Christlike leadership for the transformation of the world.


About: The Founder’s Award was instituted in 2008 to express gratitude to those individuals who were instrumental in the founding of Archbishop Murphy High School. The success of our school today is due to their vision, contribution of time and financial resources, plus their undaunted belief in the value of a Catholic high school in Snohomish County.
