Tallying high school grad success by college acceptances

Graduation at Catholic high schools in the Diocese of Tucson, Ariz.,  is being marked with a tally of not just how many students graduate, but how many are going on to college and how much money in scholarships and grants they’ve received.

Of the 448 graduates of the diocese’s six Catholic high schools, all but two — that’s not a misprint, two out of 448 — are going on to college, notes this story from The New Vision, the diocesan newspaper. The article also tallies the financial aid received by those 446 college-bound Arizonans — more than $14 million — and lists all the schools they will be attending across the country.
