In the winter of 1966, His Eminence Francis Cardinal Spellman, Archbishop of New York, announced that a co-educational Catholic high school, to serve the Kingston area, would open in September under the direction of the Sisters of St. Ursula. Named in recognition of John A. Coleman, an outstanding Catholic layperson of the Archdiocese of New York, the new high school was temporarily located at the former Academy of St. Ursula School on Grove Street in Kingston. The new campus opened at its current location on September 4, 1968.

On June 12, 2001 John A. Coleman Catholic High School was re-chartered by the Board of Regents of the New York State Education Department as an independent Catholic high school governed by an elected Board of Trustees which welcomes students of all racial, ethnic and religious backgrounds and intentionally provides instruction to honor the traditions of our students.
