Three Villa Maria rising seniors have been named 2017-18 Diocesan Scholars. The girls will each take four courses at local colleges next year while also attending Villa Maria. Carly Brogan and Lauren Magnotta will study at Immaculata University, and Maryanna Gattuso will take classes at Villanova University.
The Scholars will not only accumulate college credits, but also get comfortable with the level of college work. These students were chosen for the program after submitting applications, essays and teacher recommendations to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Students were selected from across all the Catholic and private Catholic schools of the Philadelphia Archdiocese.
