Program 1

St. Maria Goretti High School

Since 1955 over 20,000 young women have graduated. Approximately 85% of graduates go on to higher education. The Class of 2000 earned over $3.2 million in college scholarships and grants. 75% of our students require financial assistance to attend Goretti. We raise over $150,000 annually to support these students. SMGHS is fully accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and offers academic programs for college preparation, general studies and business education. Our students are drawn from inner-city Philadelphia. The faculty includes 17 religious women from five different communities, one priest and 35 lay faculty. 70% of the teaching faculty has a Master's degree.

SMGHS employs a tracking system for placement of students, with three college preparatory tracks for students of high, above average and average ability; a basic track for students to develop academic skills and an advanced placement track with potential to earn college credit.
In 1999, SMGHS became the first school in the nation to integrate training and Microsoft Certification in word processing, spreadsheet, presentation and data base management directly into the curriculum. Students earning certification can earn up to 21 college credits through the Community College of Philadelphia and other local colleges. Microsoft Office training and certification is also offered to male and female adults and students in after school and evening classes. Special classes are held for elementary school teachers.
