Raven Rundown, 4/21/2023

April 21, 2023
Bravo, Eighth Graders!
SRLA's Class of 2023 has received a record amount of scholarship monies from a number of Catholic and private high schools in New Jersey. More than $578,000 in funding was awarded!
In making the announcement, Principal Tina Underwood said, “I am so proud of all of our students here at the Academy, especially our eighth-grade class.” She continued, “I have had the pleasure of watching these young men and women flourish at St. Rose as they grew to embody our mission, culminating with this incredible recognition and achievement as a class. Our school community could not be more pleased for each of them.”
In addition to the record awards for schools in New Jersey, one student was given a generous scholarship to attend the prestigious Hotchkiss Preparatory school in Lakeville, Connecticut. 
Congratulations, Eighth Graders!
