It offers five academic levels for students of all faiths and abilities: advanced placement (AP), honors college prep, college prep, and modified college prep to students in grades 9-12. An Individualized Instruction program is also available. On average, 98% of the school’s graduates go on to attend a college or university and seniors have averaged over $14,500,000 in scholarships. Holy Redeemer students score above the national average in the SAT, and 93% of the students take the test.
Holy Redeemer’s athletic teams have won numerous district and Wyoming Valley Conference titles, and its academic teams also compete successfully in science, math, debate, and other disciplines. Holy Redeemer High School is located in Wilkes-Barre on South Pennsylvania Blvd. and is the largest Catholic high school sponsored by the Diocese of Scranton. Mrs. Anita Sirak is principal.
