A round of applause for our 8th grade class that just graduated!
We have two students attending Red Bank Catholic in the fall with full scholarships, and another student is heading to Trinity Hall! We also have five students going to St. Rose High School with partial scholarships!
Kelsey Desire and Ava Mohammed are the two girls on their way to RBC this fall. They both graduated Mercy Center’s Sisters Academy of New Jersey with “A” averages.
Kelsey, a 14-year-old from Neptune Township, told us, “I am excited. I really didn’t think I was going to get the scholarship. I would not have been able to go without it. Sisters Academy has prepared me to keep going and not give up.” Kelsey plans to go to college after RBC and maybe even medical school to become a pediatrician.
“I’m very excited to start in September. It’s going to be a new experience,” said Ava, a 14-year-old from Neptune City. Ava wants to continue dance in high school and may go out for the volleyball team.
“I think honestly, I wouldn’t be at RBC, or anything like it, if I had been at public school. I feel like the environment in public school wouldn’t have pushed me the way the Academy has pushed me,” added Ava.
