Academic Progress of St. Vincent Graduates

In response to one of the areas identified by the School Board’s Strategic Planning Committee, we are communicating academic information regarding St. Vincent graduates who are attending Judge Memorial. In the first quarter of this school year, 80% of St. Vincent graduates (52 of 65) made the Judge Honor Roll. In the second quarter, 76% of graduates (49 of 65) made the Honor Roll. 40% of our graduates (26 of 65) are enrolled in Advanced Placement classes (2 ninth graders, 4 tenth graders, 11 eleventh graders, and 9 twelfth graders).
