The second of five regional, diocesan Catholic high schools constructed in the Diocese of Fall River, the school opened in the fall of 1961. Bishop Feehan, a Roman Catholic institution, was founded to form a partnership with the families of the Attleboro area in educating teenagers in the teachings of Jesus Christ and His Church.
Feehan offers 12 AP classes and honors courses in mathematics, foreign languages, English, science and the arts. An engineering class is offered in conjunction with the Museum of Science in Boston.
