Catholic High Schools earning over $46 million in scholarships

El Paso, Texas (KTSM) - Loretto, Cathedral, and Father Yermo are all Catholic schools in the Borderland. 

Together, the students in the graduating of 2018 class amassed over 46 million dollars in scholarships for college.

"The class can be characterized as hard workers. Cooperative. They do everything that you ask them as far as academics," Counselor from Loretto Academy Jane Johns tells KTSM.

These educators say the experiences the students go through aren't typically found in a public classroom. 

"They're going to be prepared to go to colleges here in the U.S. and outside of the country because the foundation that they're going to have is going to be so solid, that they'll be able to handle the rigorous curriculum that they're going to meet later on," Teacher at Father Yermo Schools David Ramirez said.

Teachers foster a learning environment in which students thrive as they benefit from a less crowded setting.

"You're put into an atmosphere where everyone around you just wants you to succeed," Senior from Cathedral Omar Abbud said

Catholic High Schools don't just gather funds for college and universities across the country. They also provide personal development for its students.

"Since we're a catholic school, they instill morals into you that will follow you for the rest of your life," Senior from Cathedral Santiago Simons shared.
