Alumni Stories

Welcome to all who have shared the Kennedy Experience

Read stories from our alumni as they reminisce about their times at KC or tell us about what they are doing these days. We pride ourselves in the continuing success and well-being of the students we’ve taught and love to hear from them after they’ve gone from here.

Please share your story with us; tell us how high you’ve flown with l’aquila – the Soaring Golden Eagle. We want to know how your particular “flight of excellence” looks from your perspective. Email your stories and photos to Janet Taylor, our advancement director.

Testimonial from the Rosa Family

The thing that stands out to us in addition to an amazing education, is the family feeling you get from being part of this school system. Starting with the teachers and administrators, they go above and beyond to make sure each student is getting exactly what they need to succeed. Whether it is the principal putting on a band-aid or a devoted teacher staying after school and working during the summer tutoring a struggling child. They really care. We are so happy we chose the KCFS for our children.”

Testimonial from Carol Shields, M.D.

“Kennedy Catholic welcomed me into its wonderful nurturing environment. Kennedy planted the seed of my career and taught me discipline, integrity, and loyalty – 3 assets for success. That opened the door to an excellent University, then Medical School, and now blossomed into a top tier medical practice in Philadelphia. My roots remain at Kennedy.”
