Qualifying Students Also Receive $9,000 Scholarship at Minimum
Immaculata University and Christopher Columbus High School for Boys in Miami, Fla, have entered into an agreement that guarantees admission to Immaculata for qualifying students graduating from Christopher Columbus. To recognize the academic accomplishments of these graduates, Immaculata will provide, at minimum, a $9,000 academic merit scholarship for qualifying students. Christopher Columbus High School is a private, Roman Catholic, college-preparatory high school, conducted by the Marist Brothers.
“We are very pleased to have entered into a guaranteed admissions agreement with Christopher Columbus High School for Boys in Miami, Florida,” states Barbara Lettiere ’72, president of Immaculata University. “The terms of this agreement will provide affordable access to a quality education for the students of Christopher Columbus and we look forward to welcoming Christopher Columbus students to the Immaculata University community.”
The guaranteed admission program and the merit scholarship are effective for students entering in spring of 2020. Students must be admitted as full time, first-time students with a GPA of at least 2.5, combined SAT score of 990, and satisfy other application requirements. The merit scholarship, worth a minimum of $9,000, is renewable for three additional consecutive years of full-time status provided a benchmark GPA is maintained. Christopher Columbus students who earn a higher GPA and SAT score may qualify for a higher based merit scholarship. In addition to this merit scholarship, all Catholic high school students will receive a Catholic School Grant for $2,000 renewable for three additional consecutive years of full-time status.
Thirty-eight percent of Immaculata’s undergraduate, traditional-aged students graduate from Catholic high schools. The new agreement between Immaculata and Christopher Columbus High School for Boys is a testament to the commitment from both institutions to provide access and opportunity for a quality education.
