College Partnerships

For students pursuing college admissions after high school, the investment of effort and tuition that culminates in a Delone Catholic High School diploma, can also pay off with guaranteed acceptance and merit scholarships at nearly 30 partner colleges and universities.

Delone Catholic High School is proud to have secured college and university partnerships for our students. These partnerships guarantee Delone Catholic students acceptance and merit-based scholarships to schools, given they meet certain GPA and SAT/ACT requirements.

With most Delone Catholic students advancing to post-secondary education, college acceptance and the financial means to attend are on the minds of nearly every Delone Catholic family. It is our hope that these partnerships ease some of the worries of the future for our students and families by giving them knowledge of their acceptance and merit-based assistance to a fine institution. Furthermore, Delone Catholic is proud to endorse these faith-based colleges and universities with the knowledge that these institutions will care for their students just as we do–mind, body, and spirit.

We are in the process of expanding our partnership program, and are in conversation with other colleges and universities. Future partnerships will be announced as agreements are reached.
