About Roman Catholic High School
Roman Catholic High School was founded in 1890 through the vision of Philadelphia businessman, Thomas E. Cahill. Presently, our diverse student body draws from every section of the city as well as the surrounding counties. Over 170 different elementary schools are represented in Catholic High. The graduating class of 2017 garnered over $24 million in scholarships and grants, with 96% matriculating to some of the finest colleges and universities throughout the United States. Alumni and friends can be rightfully proud of the accomplishments of our students.
Over the last 128 years, many impressive young men have passed through Broad and Vine.
