    Off the top of my head, Regis Philbin went to Notre Dame, and actor Kevin Kline, a favorite of mine, attended Priory HS in St. Louis.

    If you're gonna focus on famous Catholic people, then look to the likes of Jim Caviezel, for instance. I don't know if attended Catholic school or not. (he refuses roles which compromise his moral beliefs, or will get the script changed if possible. For instance, he won't make out with other women in films because it's disrespectful to his wife. And I doubt that he'd ever play an openly gay guy or anything like that)

    Oh and I am pretty sure Madonna went to Catholic school all of her life. Really shows, doesn't it?

    Patrick,

    You might want to go through this list of RCs at Wikipedia for a start.

    Wayne Rooney (ManU and England striker) went to De La Salle School in Liverpool.

    Pierce Brosnan was educated by the Irish Christian Brothers.

    Justice Antonin Scalia attended a Jesuit school in Manhattan, and Chief Justice John Roberts went to a RC boarding school in Indiana.

    British actor Rupert Everett attended Ampleforth College. Andrew Parker Bowles (yes, the former husband of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall) also attended Ampleforth, and his daughter, Laura Parker Bowles, attended a RC girls' school in England.

    The Wikipedia entry on Ampleforth College linked above has a list of "Notable Old Amplefordians" that you can go through.

    Currently:

    All the children of the royal family in Belgium. They're not privately tutored: they go to Catholic schools!!! These are people who would have EVERY option open for them, and even they opt for Catholic schools!
