A sophomore at Camden Catholic, Sam’s current schedule includes Chemistry, Geometry, Religion II, Health, Honors American Lit, Honors US History I and Spanish II. After working to produce a great yearbook at St. Peter’s, Sam continues to be interested in different aspects of writing. In addition to her activities at school, Sam holds down a regular babysitting job and serves as a wonderful role model for younger students.
At St. Peter’s Sam learned, “You are who you are for a reason. Allow your mind to be filled with knowledge, be wise to what is going on around you, and do everything to the best of your abilities. At first it may not be easy, but in the end, everything done by you to benefit you academically and socially will be worth it. Work hard when you’re young, when you’re older you’ll thank yourself.”
Sam’s favorite memory from St. Peter’s is crowning Mary during the May Procession.
A recent graduate of St. Joe’s Prep, Isaiah graduated with top honors. His senior schedule included Bioethics, AP Psychology, AP English, AP European History, German IV, Studio Foundations and AP Calculus AB. Continuing his track legacy started at St. Peter’s, Isaiah has made it to the state championship tournament for cross-country two years in a row. He has also traveled to Germany through a foreign exchange program and has twice hosted students from this country as well. Isaiah will attend Columbia University in the fall.
At St. Peter’s, Isaiah learned, “How to be responsible for my own work. In high school, you’re expected to have all of your work done on time with few exceptions. Fortunately, I already had a solid sense of my own personal responsibility going into my freshman year because of my experience at St. Peter’s.”
Isaiah’s favorite memory from St. Peter’s is definitely the 8th grade trip to New York. “We had gone on class trips every year before, but not on as big a scale as New York, and not coupled with the excitement of our impending graduation.”
