Saint Hubert was first opened in 1941. Today, it is Philadelphia’s number one largest Catholic high school for girls. With over 800 current students and an extremely strong 30,000 alumnae, the school is far from just a building, it is a beloved tradition and second home to us.
The reason we were told that our beloved school was going to be shut down was because of low enrollment and financial issues. The whole idea didn’t make any sense to anyone. There are plenty of current students that walk the halls of the school, and more than enough alumnae to keep this tradition going. If the archdiocese really goes through with it and closes Saint Hubert’s, a piece of everyone, a piece of our community, and a huge part of our lives will be lost. I truly hope that our efforts continue to keep Saint Hubert open, for the simple fact that I want every girl possible to experience the amazing things that myself and all alumnae did.
