Congratulations, class of 2019

The world hopes for your wisdom, is buoyed by your faith

MIAMI | The signs of graduation are caps and gowns and tassels. But those signs are also symbols: of wisdom, faith and hope.

Graduations honor lessons learned and augur wisdom still to gain. They are tangible expressions of hope that a new generation might heal an ailing world. They reward the faith of parents in children, teachers in students and students in themselves. And as such they are reminders that with faith, anything is possible.

The 3,077 graduates in the Archdiocese of Miami’s class of 2019 certainly live up to those lofty expectations. Here are some numbers to prove it:

  • 13: Catholic high schools in the archdiocese, including one virtual school.
  • 523: largest graduating class, St. Thomas Aquinas, Fort Lauderdale.
  • 12: smallest graduating class, ADOM Virtual School.
  • 893: attended Catholic schools for 12 years; representing 29% of the graduates of seven schools that obtained those statistics.
  • 98%: college-bound.
  • 54%: earned college scholarships.
  • 5%: recognized as national merit finalists, semifinalists, commended or Hispanic scholars.
  • 5%: graduated from programs for exceptional learners (disability or impairments).
  • $264.5 million: amount earned in college scholarships.
  • 728,853: number of community service hours completed.

Congratulations, class of 2019. The world hopes for your wisdom, is buoyed by your faith.
