Saint Martin de Porres School

Since its official launch last year, the program has recognized 16 deserving students with a scholarship. The 2013 scholars come from the following Catholic elementary schools in the city of Philadelphia: Holy Redeemer Chinese Catholic School, Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish School, Saint Anthony of Padua Regional Catholic School, Saint Francis Cabrini Regional Catholic School Saint George Parish School and Saint Mary Interparochial School. 

 

The mission of the Saint John Vianney Scholars Program is to provide financial and academic support to children who are involved in their community and motivated to excel in school. The program hopes to provide many students with scholarships in the coming years as well as introduce this program to other parishes in the Archdiocese. Through their partnership with the Connelly Foundation, they are also able to provide the scholarship awardees with additional resources.
