Kate Browning
McGill-Toolen Class of 2001

Kate feels very fortunate to have been able to attend Catholic schools from kindergarten all the way to law school. She graduated from St. Pius in 1997 and was in the McGill-Toolen Class of 2001. She went on to graduate from Spring Hill College and Ave Maria School of Law in Naples, Florida. Kate currently works in Mobile for her father’s law firm, Richard E. Browning, P.C. They specialize in the areas of Worker’s Compensation, Social Security Disability, Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation and Personal Injury.

Kate says, “I think what I loved most about McGill was the concept of helping students to grow and better themselves in mind, body and spirit. McGill-Toolen Catholic is a true community, and there is a niche for everyone.” Kate found her niche by participating in clubs such as the Student Ambassador's Club, Pro-Life Club and Key Club and playing on the girls' tennis team all four years. She enjoyed being challenged in AP and Honors classes. Kate says she loved the fact that she attended a high school that not only had exciting football games and entertaining plays, but a place where she had the opportunity to attend Mass in the school gym and begin each class with a prayer.

“While at McGill-Toolen Catholic, I was surrounded by students who became some of my closest friends and still are to this day.”, Kate said. As an alumnus, she thoroughly enjoys attending events such as football games and the Jacket Jubilation. She is really looking forward to her ten-year reunion this summer, as well! Kate said, “I cannot believe it has already been a decade since graduation, but I will be eternally grateful for the preparation I received at McGill- Toolen Catholic and look forward to being an active alumnus for many years to come.

Welcome to Mc-Gill Toolen High School

Principal Michelle HaasOn behalf of the McGill-Toolen Administration, faculty, staff, students and community, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our web site. McGill-Toolen Catholic High School is proud to be a part of the international computer information service. McT, as we call ourselves, is an over 105-year-old school located on the Gulf Coast in Mobile, Alabama.

Our current school came into existence on July 1, 1973 through the merger of McGill Institute for Boys (founded in 1896) and Bishop Toolen High School for Girls (founded in 1928). The school is a part of the educational system of the Catholic Archdiocese of Mobile consisting of three high schools and 18 elementary schools. The system has approximately 6,000 students enrolled. The current enrollment for McGill-Toolen is approximately 1100 in grades nine through twelve. The school serves Mobile and Baldwin Counties of south Alabama and east Jackson County of south Mississippi.

We are extremely proud of our heritage in Catholic Education. We are privileged at McGill-Toolen through our ability to provide three important facets to our mission as educators: the best in the area of academic excellence, the best in the physical development of the body, and the most important, that which is our primary reason for existence, the spiritual development of the soul.
