We are committed to working with all families seeking an affordable, values-based, Catholic education.
Conwell-Egan Catholic High School offers a number of ways to make Catholic education affordable to our students, who come to us from Bucks County, Northeast Philadelphia, and central New Jersey communities located in Burlington and Mercer County, including Trenton, Ewing, Hamilton, and Lawrenceville Townships.
These are four-year, full tuition scholarships awarded to entering ninth graders based on the results of an Archdiocesan-wide Universal HSPT High School Test. The program is sponsored by and funded through the generosity of the Connelly Foundation. Participation is handled through the parish elementary schools and awards are made on a vicariate basis. While students will not have to pre-register for the exam, nor will they have to take a separate scholarship test, qualified students will have to notify the Office of Catholic Education that they wish to be considered for the scholarship.
The Neumann Scholars Program awards approximately 40 scholarships annually. The distribution of the scholarships will be determined by the number of students in each county who qualify for the scholarship and elect to submit their scores for consideration. More information as it relates to qualification and score submission will follow in the fall. The scholarship announcement is scheduled for November. If you have any questions regarding the Collaborative Testing Program or the Neumann Scholars Program, please email: HSPT@ArchPhila-OCE.org.

Cardinal Justin Rigali, then Archbishop of Philadelphia, announced on Monday, March 3, 2008, that the Archdiocese of Philadelphia had received a bequest to fund a scholarship in honor of Monsignor John T. Mitchell. Monsignor Mitchell served as a priest of the Archdiocese from 1939 through 1981. During that time, he was the Pastor of Saint Ignatius of Loyola and Saint Francis de Sales Parishes in West Philadelphia, where he was known for his faithful ministry to African American Catholics. In light of this, the Monsignor Mitchell Scholarship Fund will support high school students in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia who are Catholic and African American, with academic ability and financial need. One (or more, if economically feasible) one-year scholarship(s), up to $2,500, will be awarded annually based upon the determination of the Selection Committee. Student recipients must reapply each year.
