Roselle Catholic graduates obtain millions of dollars every year in scholarships and grants toward their college careers.The Class of 2012 earned over $5,000,000. Virtually all of our graduates go on to college, some attending the finest universities in the country; for just an example, three of our recent graduates are currently studying at service academies; two (one female and one male) at the Naval Academy and a young man at West Point.
Every year approximately 10% of our students are designated as Advanced Placement Scholars by The College Board in recognition of their performance on Advanced Placement exams. Over 15% are admitted to the National Honor Society. Roselle Catholic students continue to take advantage of Seton Hall
University’s Project Acceleration; the growing number of teachers on our faculty certified by Seton Hall as adjunct instructors has enabled our students to earn a host of college credits for their course work here, credits that are accepted by hundreds of colleges, representing a substantial savings in college tuition.
