Congrats to the Class of 2016!

Class of 2016 Pano

Bishop McDevitt ‘s Class of 2016 has more than doubled the scholarship award money they will receive this year vs. last year’s graduates. Ten percent of the Senior Class received FULL academic scholarships to Villanova University, LaSalle University, The Catholic University of America, Temple University, Georgetown University, Gwynedd Mercy University,  St. Peter’s College and Lock Haven University.

We are proud to announce that 66% of our graduating seniors received scholarships and grants to 76 different colleges. The top schools include, but are not limited to, Arcadia University, Drexel University, Dickinson College, Duquesne University, St. Joseph’s University, Northeastern University, Penn State University, Immaculata University, Cabrini College, Chestnut Hill College, and Holy Family University.

The Class of 2016 is the first class Principal Mary Kirby worked with upon her arrival here in 2012.  “Ms. Kirby, along with the faculty has transformed our academic program from good to outstanding, according to President Steve Finley.” We enhanced our curriculum, improved our College Counseling, aided students with SAT Preparation and established programs that gave students the ability to apply to more colleges and universities.

At a time when student outcomes are so important, we are very pleased with the increase in the number of students who received scholarships, as well as the dramatic increase in scholarship dollars. Ms. Kirby says, “The large increase in scholarship money is a result of the Class of 2016’s strong work ethic, coupled with a faculty who are totally immersed in their college process.”
