Incredible diocesan statistics released show that 97 percent of all diocesan Catholic high school graduates continue their education at two-or-four year colleges or degree granting institutions, a dramatically better percentage than other schools.
Diocese of Greensburg Catholic school students are college bound and work hard to accomplish their goals and dreams thanks to the personal attention from caring and talented faculty.
Because Catholic schools are usually smaller, students have significant opportunities to participate and lead in extracurricular activities, the arts and athletics.
Catholic school graduates attend great colleges and universities such as: Carnegie Mellon University (Pittsburgh), Duquesne University (Pittsburgh), Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore, Md.), Penn State University (State College), Purdue University (West Layfayette, Ind.), Saint Vincent College (Latrobe), University of Notre Dame (Notre Dame, Ind.), Seton Hill University (Greensburg) and Villanova University (Villanova, Pa.).
These graduates leave high school as motivated, ethical young adults who are known for their kind and respectful attitudes. Parents sacrifice to send their children to a Catholic school because they recognize that elementary and high school are critical periods of development. When students finish secondary school grounded with a good work ethic and strong Catholic values, they are most likely to succeed in college and life.
Our high schools offer a College in High School program where students can potentially graduate with a year of college already achieved. This saves time as well as money.
