Holy Family, Archbishop Ryan announce education partnership

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office of Catholic Education announced Wednesday a partnership between Holy Family University and Archbishop Ryan High School.

Ryan students who graduate with a GPA of at least 2.5 will be eligible for admission into Holy Family with application fees waived. While in high school, Ryan students will be able to take dual-credit classes at Holy Family that meet their graduation requirements and count toward university credit.

“This arrangement, which further supports and enhances the mission, core values and beliefs shared by both academic institutions, will allow our students and faculty to further their education at a highly competitive local university,” said Doctor Carol Cary, the archdiocese’s superintendent of secondary schools

Ryan faculty and staff will also be able to take undergraduate, graduate and degree programs with waived application fees and grant opportunities.
