Excellence in Academics
St. Rita of Cascia High School is completely committed to a College Preparatory curriculum. All students are placed in an academic program that is tailored to meet their needs. Our course of studies will challenge each student to fully develop his intellectual talents.
The Augustinian Academy allows qualified students the opportunity of accelerated course work. The Mendel Academic Program provides students all the essential tools for success at the college level. The program structured through the Villanova Academic Study Center provides individual attention, small group work, and advice regarding study and organizational skills to those who need some assistance. All students, regardless of their academic program, may avail themselves of the services offered by the Villanova Academic Study Center.
We are proud of our students and honored that the United States Board of Education has cited St. Rita as an Exemplary Secondary school. On average 98% of our students continue on to college. The senior class of 2015, totaling 181 young men, earned $17.6 million dollars in scholarships, and are currently enrolled in prestigious universities across the country. Virtually all of these scholarships were academic or leadership awards.
