North End Youth Wins BC High Scholarship

William J. Kemeza, President of Boston College High School, is pleased to announce that Christian Cattaneo of the North End, has been named a recipient of a Boston College High School Academic Merit Scholarship.

Each year, Boston College High School awards over $1.7 million in scholarship and financial aid to qualified students. This year the school awarded 45 scholarships to the 8th grade class Arrupe Division for entrance into Freshman year. The boys and their parents were invited to a breakfast at the school on Friday, March 7, 2014 to celebrate their achievement.

The scholarships were awarded to students from a diverse and highly competitive applicant pool. The students were selected based on their outstanding work on the entrance examination, recommendations from teachers and their distinguished academic performance at their schools.

“We have carefully selected the most qualified young men from a highly competitive applicant pool to become part of BC High’s 150-year tradition of academic excellence, character development and service to others,” said President Kemeza.

“At BC High, they will be challenged in a nurturing and supportive environment and will graduate as leaders marked by competence, conscience and compassion; leaders who will engage our Church and our world.”
