FATHER JOSEPH F. BRENNAN ACADEMY
This academic pathway is a program of studies established in honor of former Teurlings Catholic High School Chancellor, Father Joseph F. Brennan. The designation of “Father Joseph F. Brennan Scholar” honors students who have met specific Curriculum, GPA, and Standardized Testing requirements throughout each of their 4 years at Teurlings Catholic High School. This challenging course of study requires students to schedule honors classes in all four core subjects each year. Eligibility for each of the courses requires a sub score in the 90th percentile in that subject for incoming Freshmen. All students will be reevaluated each subsequent year based on current standardized test scores and grades as posted in the school’s handbook. In addition, a minimum cumulative GPA must be maintained and minimum PACT and ACT scores must be earned in order to maintain eligibility. Students who meet the requirements each year will be honored at the Fall Awards Ceremony the following year. Students must meet all criteria each year to continue to be recognized as a candidate for the final designation as a graduating Senior. Students who meet the criteria for all 4 years of High School will be awarded the distinction of “Father Joseph F. Brennan Scholar “at the Senior Honors Convocation prior to Graduation.
