Alumni Testimonials

ERIN O’CALLAGHAN ’19

University of Notre Dame ’23

“Faith is not knowing how it will happen, but believing it will. At CCHS I learned to give everything my best effort, treat others how I want to be treated and believing that everything will work out.”

DENNIS CORBETT ’90

Regional Director, Putnam Investments

“Even though I physically left the halls of CCHS about 30 years ago, CCHS has never really left me. The CCHS environment not only challenged and motivated me with a strong educational backdrop, but I truly believe in four short years.

SIMON PHILLIPS ’19

Tulane University ’23

“Faith is interwoven into every aspect of student life at CCHS. Whether it be an AP Biology class, or a lacrosse game, prayer begins everything at CCHS.”

PATRICE DORRALL ’88

Founder & Director, White Dove Global Prep, Rwanda, Africa

“Camden Catholic guided me towards a career in education. I received an excellent education here which prepared me not only for post-secondary study, but also for life. My organization skills and time management were first honed at CCHS.”

CARLY ROBINSON ’07

Software Engineer, Slack Technologies

“Camden Catholic had a significant impact on my decision to pursue theater professionally. I will always be grateful to the performing arts faculty for giving me the opportunity to explore my talents and to challenge myself at a higher level. The curriculum at CCHS inspired in me a deep love of academics, a hunger for intellectual challenges, and a confidence that enabled me to succeed in college and beyond.”

LUIS GAITAN ’06

Transportation Engineer, HNTB

“At CCHS I realized that college was an option for me…Everyone around me expected more from me than I did from myself. Looking back at where my education has led me, as a naval officer overseas, and now as an engineer locally, I can thank CCHS for helping me become a well-rounded professional who also contributes to my community.”

At Camden Catholic High School we recognize the transition from middle school to high school can be challenging.

This transition is marked with significant changes; students encounter new friends, new academic expectations, and new social activities.  Our freshmen come from approximately 80 different schools so we know while it can be a time of excitement it also may be a time of anxiety.  The Freshman Transition Program, guided by Link Crew, seeks to assist incoming freshmen grow and develop spiritually, academically and socially so students know they belong to an Irish family that cares about them and encourages them to find their purpose.  Below is a brief description of different aspects of the Freshman Transition program, important contact information and helpful resources for freshmen.

50+ Orientation leaders made up of sophomores, juniors and seniors, guide the opening days of freshman year, assisting our new students with academic planning, time management, school club involvement and social skills. Link Crew allows the freshman class to bond as a unique community, and gives them the chance to explore their new home before school is fully in session. Link Crew leaders stay in touch with their designated freshmen students throughout the year to ensure they are experiencing Camden Catholic to the fullest.

The Vice Principal of Student Affairs hosts regularly scheduled meetings with the entire freshman class to help guide them through specific challenges of freshman year. Topics covered include:

  • Study Skills
  • Note Taking
  • Time Management
  • Homework
  • NCAA Eligibility
  • Midterm Exam Preparation

A day for students to learn, reflect and live out our charism of mercy, and also for them to immerse themselves in the history and traditions of Camden Catholic. Students travel together to the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Camden, the original site of CCHS, to pray and join the community in Mass. They also participate in a service project at the Cathedral Kitchen and learn about the daily works of mercy which take place there.
