SOH’s college trips help students to develop a framework for their college choices. In 2014, SOH took 12 high school students to visit Vassar, Skidmore, Union, and Connecticut Colleges.

Danny’s recounting of his experience at Penn is one of the reasons I decided to look into the school,” recalls a 2014 graduate of Cardinal Hayes who toured UPenn on a SOH trip chaperoned by a SOH/UPenn alumnus. The Hayes graduate is in the Class of 2018 at UPenn’s Wharton School.
