Holy Redeemer High School is a high school of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Scranton, located in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, United States.


In January 2007, Bishop Joseph Martino announced the formation of a central Catholic high school for Luzerne County. It is a consolidation of the four Catholic high schools, Bishop Hafey High School (Hazleton), Bishop Hoban High School (Wilkes-Barre), Bishop O'Reilly High School (Kingston) and Seton Catholic High School (Pittston), and is located in the building that has housed Bishop Hoban since 1972. In the spring of 2007, the name "Holy Redeemer" was selected for the new school, as well as its mascot, the Royals. The schools colors are red, white, and gold. Holy Redeemer High School opened its doors for the first day of school in late August 2007.

Since it was Bishop Hoban, tuition has gone up every year. As of 2008, it has increased $500. Fact|date=April 2008
