We Prepare Our Children For College

Our 18 Catholic high schools offer four years of rigorous college preparatory programs coupled with individualized attention and support to ensure that our students reach their full potential. We’re proud that 100% of our high school seniors graduate, compared to approximately 60% of New York City public school students, and 98% of our graduates go on to college. Our students have been accepted to the most competitive colleges in the country and have received approximately $350 million in scholarships.

And We Prepare Them For Life

We also offer a community environment in which students can discuss and live out the values upon which their education is based. They are encouraged to contribute to society and to assume leadership roles in shaping public attitudes and programs as well as becoming faith-filled and faithful citizens.


Teaching young people to think critically, to establish confidence in their own good choices in life, and to experience the sense of accomplishment that stems from individual achievement and responsibility.
