Our curriculum within our secondary setting is also based on the formation of the Catholic faith within an environment of academic excellence.
Our Catholic high schools educate our youth — spiritually and intellectually — within a diverse, advanced and rigorous selection of course offerings and programming.
Our curriculum is designed to meet and exceed the standards established under state law. In addition to meeting all of the Pennsylvania Department of Education requirements, our curriculum also integrates Gospel values.
This advanced curriculum has resulted in our students surpassing the national norms on standardized tests; performing at the top level in our region, relative to SAT examination; and having 98 percent of graduates at Greensburg Central Catholic Junior-Senior High School attending post-secondary institutions, and 99 percent of Geibel Catholic Junior-Senior High School graduates attending post-secondary institutions.
These graduates qualified for over $6 million in scholarship money to attend such post-secondary institutions. Our course offerings are inclusive of an advanced curriculum, allowing our students to be dually enrolled within local Catholic colleges and universities and our Catholic high schools.
This dual programming allows our students to enter colleges and universities at sophomore status, with a potential of 24 credits earned on a college transcript, prior to graduating from our Catholic high schools.
