God speed, class of 2018

MIAMI | The smiling faces below are only part of the story of the class of 2018 in the Archdiocese of Miami. But even the numbers below as impressive as they are don’t paint a complete picture.

Numbers don’t convey the hours of effort, the strength of character, or the depth of dedication of this year’s 3,062 graduates of the 12 Catholic high schools, and one virtual school, in the archdiocese. So keep that in mind as you read about some of their accomplishments (in accompanying stories) and peruse these statistics.

  • 3,028: college bound, 99 percent
  • 1,804: received scholarships for college, 59 percent
  • $231,532,415: scholarship money received
  • 163: National Merit, Commended or Hispanic Scholars, 5 percent
  • 709,839: community service hours completed
  • 734: completed 12 years of Catholic education; representing 24 percent of the graduates of six schools that keep those statistics.

God speed, class of 2018. Don’t forget your roots. Hold on to your faith. And continue to make your parents and your Church proud.
