Archbishop Molloy High School Profile

“While I attended Archbishop Molloy High School, some of my favorite things were the kind and passionate faculty, the amazing curriculum and the clubs that were available after school. The teachers were very passionate about the subjects they taught and had no qualms with helping their students in any way to understand the materials. Attending Archbishop Molloy High School has prepared me for the college experience by challenging me every day in order to be ready for the road ahead.”

- Luigi Albano, Archbishop Molloy High School alumnus and CCF Scholarship recipient.

Archbishop Molloy High School – a Catholic high school in Queens, NY – focuses on academic excellence and prides itself on having 100% of its graduates attend college. The diverse college-bound student body stands out among its peers with the highest percentage of its graduates earning a Regents diploma among Catholic schools. Admission to the school is extremely competitive with over 2,000 students applying for 400 available freshman seats.

Offering over 30 Honors classes, 97% of their students enroll in at least one Advanced Placement college credit course prior to graduation. Molloy partners with colleges to make opportunities available for their students in science, research, and liberal arts. Qualified students can earn as many as 36 college credits through Molloy’s college extension courses.

Their newly designed Science Research Program allows Molloy students to identify the field in which they are most interested, be mentored by a scientist, and gain research skills. At the end of the three-year program, students are offered opportunities to present their work at competitions, including INTEL, Siemens, and others in the region that encourage creativity and scientific rigor.

The school also boasts an ambitious athletics program that counts numerous city-wide championship teams.

Columbus Citizens Foundation has awarded many scholarships to Archbishop Molloy High School students over the years. The combination of the tuition support and the challenging program at Molloy has assured that these students recognize their full potential, develop leadership skills, and contribute in meaningful ways as they advance in the professional and personal lives.

Our CCF scholar and Molloy alumnus, Luigi Albano, quoted above, and CCF Scholar and current Molloy student, James Galeno-Budion are examples of the excellent education one receives at Archbishop Molloy High School and the important role CCF Scholarships play in helping students achieve their dreams.
