Catholic high schools in archdiocese graduate more than 1,900 seniors

June 22, 2017

All schools hope that their graduates will move on to the next stage of their lives prepared academically, emotionally and socially for whatever they may face in the future, but the schools of the Archdiocese of San Francisco instill something that is even more important as our students move forward in life. As our students graduate they understand that God has created them to go out into the world as a disciple of Christ to proclaim His message through their words, and more importantly, through their actions. Our students understand that they are the future of the church in the United States and the greater world. It is my hope that our students will change the world on their way to heaven.

I am so proud of the over 1,910 high school students who graduated from Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of San Francisco in 2017. This school year more than 24,566 students attended Catholic Schools in San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties, and we welcome those members of our community who are not currently attending a school in the archdiocese to send your child to one of our 21 preschools, 57 elementary schools and 14 high schools. Join us in our mission to grow our students’ understanding that they are God’s beloved so they may fully realize God’s plan for them.

Many Blessings,
