Flaget High School  1942 – 1974

     Flaget High School is located at 44th Street and River Park Drive in the Shawnee neighborhood of Louisville, Kentucky.  Flaget was named for Benedict Joseph Flaget, the first Bishop of Kentucky.  Flaget was a Catholic College preparatory high school, and classes were taught by Xaverian Brothers .  The school offered a chance for students to attend a college preparatory school instead of a vocational school.  Many students were the first in their families to attend college, and many became leaders in the community.  Enrollment passed 1,000 in 1949-1950, and over 4,200 students graduating over the years.

     Notable alumni include Paul Hornung-1956 Heisman Trophy winner, college and professional football coach Howard Schnellenberger, Oscar Brohm, Daniel Ulmer, and Mel Lindauer, author.

     The building now houses apartments for the elderly.  A museum containing Flaget photos and memorabilia is located in the Alumni Building at St. Xavier.
