Graduating seniors from the 17 archdiocesan high schools in the Philadelphia Archdiocese earned a record cumulative amount of college scholarships this year totaling more than $396 million. Representative students from the schools gathered May 31 at the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center in Philadelphia to celebrate the achievement.

In a separate event, the 30 National Merit Scholarship recipients from the archdiocesan high schools met May 21 in the multi-media room of Roman Catholic High School’s new Howard Center in Philadelphia. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
