  • High-schoolers take pride in actively promoting their schools to prospective students

    Notre Dame junior Abigail Vernon has some sage advice for prospective high school students.

    “Keep an open mind. Just because your friends/family go to a certain school does not mean that you have to go there as well,” the Lawrenceville high school student said.

  • A showcase of Catholic schools in the Diocese of Trenton
    Parish, regional and diocesan Catholic schools across Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean Counties look forward to presenting the benefits of their schools to the families of prospective Pre-K through12 students this fall.
  • Parents know all children are different, exhibiting their own unique needs, developmental path, talents and interests.
  • 2018 High School Showcase

    It’s that time again! Every year, The Monitor publishes its High School Showcase to provide a helpful resource to eighth-grade students and their parents as open houses are held around the Diocese.

    Even after the open houses, this showcase can provide essential information to families considering enrolling their child in a Catholic high school in the Diocese of Trenton. Included in this publication is a look at academic and sports programs, tuition, spiritual life opportunities, SAT scores and more as well as a list of all Catholic schools in the Diocese.

  • Following is a listing of Catholic colleges, universities in the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest regions:
  • TCA student awarded Catholic University of America scholarship named for Bishop O'Connell

    For Trenton Catholic Academy senior Angie Labissiere, attending The Catholic University of America, Washington, and receiving the Most Reverend David M. O’Connell Service Scholarship is a dream come true.

    “I truly feel privileged to be chosen as the winner of the Bishop O’Connell Service Scholarship. Being able to attend college is a dream that I’ve always longed for,” the Hamilton school student said. 

    “The fact that this scholarship is solely based on service means so much to me because service is a major part of my life. I owe all my blessings to the different service projects I have been a part of; they all played a huge part in breaking me out of my comfort zone and shaping me into the person I am today.”

  • Faithful co-eds seek campus ministries for fellowship, support
    Whether it is a shared faith, a sense of fellowship and support, or a refuge from the challenges associated with coursework and potentially negative influences, young men and women attending colleges across the Diocese of Trenton turn to campus ministries to keep the faith during their collegiate pursuits.
  • It’s an exciting, frightening and life-changing time in a young person’s life – the moment when students begin to decide what college they will attend after high school.
  • St. John Vianney seniors to graduate with associate degrees before high school commencement
    Of the more than 1,900 students graduating May 10 from Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, for the first time nine of them will be area Catholic high school seniors.
  • It’s the time of year when high school seniors run to their respective mail boxes (or more likely, email inboxes!) after school each day to see if the long-awaited “fat envelope” from their dream college has arrived. Some refer to this as a time of stress, but in my experience, many seniors approach this time with a great sense of excitement. With each new letter or email delivery comes something that could potentially determine the course of the rest of one’s life. A rejection letter closes a door. A hope that had been entertained must be let go. An acceptance letter opens the door to possibilities only previously dreamed of.

The Diocese of Trenton is committed to the initiatives outlined in the U.S. Bishop’s Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People in regard to the reporting and investigation of sexual abuse allegations involving minors.
