HOLY REDEEMER HIGH SCHOOL TO HOLD OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY, OCT. 26
Holy Redeemer High School will hold its annual open house for prospective new students and their families on Sunday, Oct. 26 from 1 – 3 p.m. Tours of the school will be offered, and participants will be given the opportunity to meet and talk with faculty, coaches, administration, parents, and students. Information about the school’s academic program, extra-curricular activities, and registration process will also be available. Refreshments will be served.
Holy Redeemer was founded in 2007 after the consolidation of Luzerne County’s Catholic high schools. It offers five academic levels for students of all faiths and abilities: advanced placement (AP), honors college prep, college prep, and modified college prep to students in grades 9-12. An Individualized Instruction program is also available. Last year, 97% of the school’s graduates matriculated to a college or university, and seniors earned over $18,300, 000 in performance-based scholarships. Holy Redeemer students score above the national average in the SAT, and 95% of the students take the test.
Holy Redeemer’s athletic teams have won numerous state, district, and Wyoming Valley Conference titles, and its academic teams also compete successfully in science, math, debate, and other disciplines. The school offers a diverse fine arts program and over 50 clubs and activities for students. Students also engage in a vigorous community and school service program, donating nearly 20,000 hours of service each year.
The school is located at 159 S. Pennsylvania Blvd. in Wilkes-Barre. It is a member of the Diocese of Scranton Catholic School System.
