Bishop Canevin High School | JULY 2019
From Principal Michael Joyce

Bishop Canevin is a community that is proud of its past, excited about its future, and is thriving in its present. I wanted to share the following examples of how our Crusaders continued to raise the bar and enhance our school’s well-deserved reputation in all areas this past academic year.

  • For the second year in a row a Bishop Canevin student earned a perfect ACT score
  • A current Bishop Canevin student is under 2019-2020 National Merit Scholar consideration
  • Sarah Heinz House "Youth of the Year" Awardee
  • An Outstanding Student of the Month from the Pittsburgh Catholic
  • A recipient of the KDKA Extra Effort Award
  • A recipient of the Pittsburgh Rotary Club's "Student of Distinction Award"
  • Total scholarships awarded to the Class of 2019 totaling $3,856,100 or $167,656 per student

I would love your feedback about the Crusader Journal e-Newsletter and all things Bishop Canevin. Please feel free to contact me at .

I hope you and your family are having a wonderful summer!
