May 29, 2018

When the members of the Christian Brothers Academy Class of 2018 received their diplomas on Thursday, May 24th, it was the conclusion of four years of achieving academically, developing a true moral code for life ahead, excelling on the playing fields, on the stage and in the community, and of course, creating lasting friendships.

The Class of 2018 will leave a tremendous legacy at the Academy, including the following statistics as they depart for the next chapter in their lives. You can see each individual college selection for the members of the Class of 2018 here.

The 238 graduates received over $31.625 million in merit-based scholarships to colleges and universities across the country.

64 seniors graduated with distinction (seven-semester GPA of 91.5 or higher).

94 percent (224 of 238) will be attending ranked colleges and universities as defined by US News & World Report.

The Class completed 26,908 hours of community service, which is an average of 113 hours per student when only 50 hours are required (second highest total in CBA history).

41 seniors were members of CBA’s Saint de La Salle Chapter of the National Honor Society.

20 graduates were Brother Michael Dwyer Scholars.

11 individuals were National Commended Scholars, with three finalists and one scholarship recipient.

53 seniors will be playing 12 different sports at the collegiate level.

36 senior student-athletes were scholar athletes (varsity athletes with seven-semester GPA of 91.5 or higher).

 

At an earlier ceremony in April, CBA gave out 11 annual graduation awards to those seniors who have excelled in different subjects at the Academy. You can view the full list of CBA graduation awards and the college scholarships earned by each graduate here.
