College Readiness

One of our top goals here at Our Lady of Tepeyac is to help our students get into the university of their choice. Ninety-five percent of our students graduate, of which 98% go on to higher education. We know that once our students get to college, they continue to strengthen the voice they developed at Tepeyac. Our alumnae continue to tell us that graduating from an all girls' high school gave them an advantage in the college admissions process, and that every dollar invested in a Catholic education was given back ten-fold in college financial aid or scholarships.

Tepeyac’s College Readiness Program prepares our young women for life after high school. Run by our college readiness cousenlor, the program aims to help all students develop and practice the skills that are necessary for college and the workplace. We work closely with our freshmen and sophomores to help them develop skills of academic success and set goals for their futures. We also work with our juniors and seniors to help them through the college application process. Each year, all students have the opportunity to attend various college fairs and college visits, and the seniors work their way through College Boot Camp, a two-week-long program that leads them through the college application process. During the 2015-2016 academic year, over 40 colleges and universities came to Tepeyac to recruit our students. Once our graduates begin college, we continue to assist them as they make the transition from high school to college. We provide support in dealing with professors, roommates, and the financial aid office.

The Class of 2016 earned a combined total of $6,774,548 in scholarships and grants.
