As graduation approaches, I decided to take a look at the schools our senior falcons are flying off to. Out of two hundred and seventeen students, fourteen are moving on to a Catholic college. There are four students attending Madonna University, two attending Benedictine University, two attending DePaul University, one attending Franciscan University of Steubenville, and three attending the University of Detroit Mercy. How come there are more students who are leaving Divine Child to go to a non-Catholic college rather than those who are going to catholic colleges? It seems unrealistic that students come to Divine Child for a Catholic education, and then go off to a college that does not have the same teachings. Some think that going to a non-Catholic college doesn’t matter, and some say it does matter. Both sides have good points. It all comes down to what the student really wants. If the student wants the college that they will get the most scholarship money from, go there, where they can play a sport, go there, or even going to the college farthest away for some. These five Catholic schools that our graduating seniors are going to attend have high faith values, good morals, and are great schools. The whole DC Faith in Action Staff wants to congratulate them all for their great achievements this year, and to wish all the seniors the best of luck next year, and in all their future endeavors.

So Falcons, why do you think we have more students attending non-Catholic colleges than Catholic colleges? Leave a comment and let us know!
