Graduation Day for Domenica Scholars

Twenty Domenica Scholars graduated from high school this month — and we were thrilled to be able to join them! Here, Domenica Foundation Director Elena Piperno and Founder and President Pepe Piperno are flanked by scholarship graduates of Camden Catholic High School.

Every year, the Domenica Foundation awards scholarships to enable rising ninth graders to attend Catholic high schools. All attended Catholic Partnership Schools during their elementary and middle school years, where they also benefited from Domenica Foundation support.

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.

Looking Forward, Looking Back

We’re excited about new opportunities this spring that will bring books to communities with no libraries, arts instruction to Catholic Partnership Schools in Camden, and high school Domenica Scholars to the Rowan University campus.
