Catholic School Foundation Scholars Honored in Boston

Catholic School Foundation Scholars Honored in Boston

On Friday, February 7, Catholic Schools Foundation (CSF) Scholars from Central Catholic High School were celebrated during a breakfast in Boston hosted by Cardinal Séan O’Malley, John Farina of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) and Catholic Schools Foundation. The senior Central Catholic CSF Scholars were recognized for their accomplishments and hard work over the last four years. 

Cardinal O’Malley addressed all of the scholars and CSF supporters with encouragement about the great work of the schools in the Archdiocese of Boston. Central Catholic is one of 27 Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Boston supported by CSF.

CSF Scholars have a 100% graduation rate and 98% college acceptance rate. The Inner-City Scholarship Fund is the signature program of the Catholic Schools Foundation, and last year, the program distributed over 4,000 scholarships to students, totaling more than $9 million dollars in tuition support.
