Scecina's enrollment keeps growing
Scecina's enrollment stands at 454 students, including 127 freshmen and 29 transfer students.
Scecina’s enrollment continues to grow at a steady pace. For the 2015-16 school year Scecina has an official enrollment of 454 students, which was reported to the Indiana Department of Education on Sept. 8. That represents a 36 percent increase since 2011. The school appears to be on track to meet its target enrollment goal of 475 students soon.
Scecina welcomed a freshman class of 127, marking the third consecutive year that freshman enrollment exceeded 100 students.
"This year’s freshman class includes some of the brightest students from the Eastside of Indianapolis and the greater Indianapolis community,” said Kelsey Abelein, Scecina’s Director of Enrollment Management. “I, as well as others in the building, are already impressed by their spirit, cohesiveness, and academic strength."
The school also welcomed 29 transfer students from other schools, as well as nine international students through the Foreign Links Around the Globe (FLAG) program.
Statistics from our current students show these trends:
- While Scecina welcomes students of all faiths and backgrounds, 76 percent of our students are Catholic and 62 percent are from our East Deanery schools and parishes.
- The school is growing in diversity. This year the students are 55 percent Caucasian and 45 percent racial and other minorities.
- Thanks to generous alumni and friends, Scecina is able to provide tuition assistance to 76 percent of our students.
“It’s a great number of students, a great mix and diversity, and great credentials of both new and returning students,” said Scecina President Joe Therber. “We’re grateful they’ve chosen Scecina.”
