Congratulations to the 90th Graduating Class!

The Resurrection College Prep High School Class of 2015 was comprised of one hundred and fifty-seven young women. 
We congratulate these young women who have distinguished themselves in academics, service, athletics and the arts.

Members of the Class of 2015 were awarded over $11.6 million in scholarships from colleges, universities and foundations.  


Three graduates were selected to address their classmates at the Senior Assembly on May 20, 2015 and at the Commencement on May 27, 2015. Pictured above, left to right, are the student speakers: Mary Pat Hastings on the theme "Resurrection," Katelyn O'Grady on the topic "Truth," and Mary Ann Metzger on the theme "Charity."

Work-Study Program  

The Resurrection College Prep Work-Study Program offers students the ability earn additional financial aid by cleaning classrooms after school.  Students are awarded $7.50 per day that they clean.  Generally, the students work approximately 45 minutes per day. Their tuition accounts are credited with the aid at the end of the first and second semesters.  Preference will be given to freshman and sophomore students since they usually cannot find jobs in the workplace. Applications are due by July 31.
