Twelve Catholic colleges in the Philadelphia area, in cooperation with the Secondary School System of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, sponsor the Diocesan Scholars Program. The top thirty juniors are invited to interview for the program in which they would participate during their senior year. There is no college tuition for these courses. Students receive both high school and college credit. Diocesan Scholars supply their own transportation between the high school and the college, and maintain at least a B average.
