Domenica Scholars Keep on Achieving

We are so proud of our Domenica Scholars that we do our best to keep up with them after high school graduation. We want to see — and to share with you — how the opportunity to attend a high-quality high school empowers young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to keep on achieving. So today we highlight four former Domenica Scholars who are receiving college degrees this month. All four graduated from Camden Catholic High School in 2018.

Welcoming the Domenica Scholarship Class of 2026

Last week, we welcomed 18 new rising high school students to the family of Domenica Scholars. The scholarship event, held at Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Camden on April 26, was a beautiful celebration of aspiration, perseverance, and hope.

College Bound!

On Saturday, March 26, we took 25 Domenica Scholars on a tour of Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey, accompanied by high school and Catholic Partnership School staff. The trip was open to all scholarship recipients in grades 9 through 11. You can see from their testimonials how much the young people enjoyed the trip!
