Scecina Earns "A" Grade and Exemplary Progress Rating on State Education Report Card
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (October 7, 2011) – Scecina Memorial High School has attained the highest possible letter grade and rating that the State of Indiana bestows in the new state report card and school accountability model: “A” for Academic Performance and “Exemplary” for Academic Progress from 2008 – 2011. This performance places us at the 100th percentile --highest possible--of Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. The new state accountability model includes data for End of Course Assessments, Advanced Placement test scores, daily attendance, graduation rates, and other factors.
“We are immensely proud of our students and faculty for this exceptional achievement,” commented Principal John Hegarty. “These results reflect much hard work and careful planning.”
According to Dr. Ron Costello, Superintendent of Catholic schools for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis, “97 percent of the archdiocesan schools versus 51 percent of all Indiana public schools earned the top two Public Law 221 categories.”
“Scecina’s mission is to prepare every student to be college ready and to live a life of service and leadership,” remarked President Joe Therber. “Our students’ performance reflects their God-given abilities, their family environments, and our excellent faculty. We are grateful and equally optimistic about our future.”
