Preparation for college. Empowerment for the future.

At Roman Catholic High School, young men gain more than skills to succeed in college. They learn what it means to take responsibility for themselves — and for their futures.

Based in the heart of Philadelphia’s historic Center City, Roman unites our diverse student body with rigorous academics as part of our college preparatory curriculum. Whether earning credit from our partner universities or exploring our wide selection of AP and honors courses, Roman students graduate with the self-drive to succeed at college, in their careers, and beyond.

    Roman allowed me to cultivate relationships with people from all over the city that I still maintain to this day. The Broad and Vine experience just can’t be duplicated by any other school.

How Roman is keeping students safe

Student health is our top priority. In addition to mask-wearing, social distancing, and enhanced sanitizing protocols, we’ve implemented a hybrid instructional model for the 2020-2021 school year. Our students alternate between in-person and virtual learning to ensure a safe, successful school experience.
