Archdiocese of Philadelphia and Rosemont College announce innovative partnership


Rosemont will offer a 50% discount on tuition fees to high school graduates from the Archdiocese

ROSEMONT, Pa., October 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The Archdiocese of Philadelphia and Rosemont College today announced a new partnership that will provide a clear and affordable path for high school students to pursue their Catholic education at the college level.

Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, Rosemont College will offer a tuition grant of $ 9,750 to students graduating from Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese and committing to attend Rosemont as residential students. The grant is 50% off standard Rosemont tuition fees and reduces annual tuition fees to less than $ 10,000 per year. In addition, students will remain eligible for merit scholarships.

“We are delighted to offer this opportunity to students who are already engaged in a rewarding Catholic education and who wish to remain in a Catholic academic environment for their graduate studies,” said Jayson Boyers, Ed.D., President of Rosemont College. “While we hope this grant helps to continue a Catholic education, we understand that fit into college is far more than the cost. “

Sister Maureen Lawrence McDermott, IHM, Ph.D. The Director of Studies and Superintendent of High Schools of the Office of Catholic Education of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia said: “The partnership between the high schools of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia and Rosemont College offers our students a wonderful opportunity to continue their educational journey in a Catholic environment. The sister continued, “I look forward to the success of this initiative and the fruits it will bear for our young adults. “

Irene Horstmann Hannan, Executive Director of Faith in the Future, said: “Partnering with Rosemont College to provide dedicated scholarship funds to graduates of Archdiocesan high schools is one of the great opportunities. Hannan continued: “I look forward to a fruitful partnership with one of the most reputable Catholic higher education institutions in the region. “

“We believe Catholic high school graduates will find their unique place within Rosemont’s small, intentionally diverse faith community,” Boyers said. “This scholarship aims to give Catholic high school graduates the opportunity to graduate with very little or almost no debt to graduate.”

Char Hoppel, a freshman from Rosemont, is one of the many students who come to Rosemont from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Hoppel, who attended Archbishop Ryan High School, was awarded the Cornelian Scholarship for his extensive service work. She plans to major in political science at Rosemont and aspires to work in local politics or in the private sector as a policy analyst.

“Coming from an Archdiocesan high school, I’m so glad I made the decision to come to Rosemont,” said Hoppel. “In high school, I really appreciated the mentorship I received from my teachers and the opportunity to explore a subject in depth in class. I wanted a similar experience in college and found this and more in Rosemont. We are a small community where I get to know everyone in my residence and have been able to get involved in many organizations on campus. I am convinced that other students from the Archdiocese would find their place here in Rosemont, just like me.
