In 2000, eighteen years after East Orange Catholic High School ceased to exist, its graduates created the official EOCH Alumnae Association.
The EOCH Alumnae Association provides scholarships to young women who attend Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Newark under the auspices of the Sisters of Charity in New Jersey.
The Association’s members are former students, faculty and friends of East Orange Catholic High School, which provided an outstanding education for young women from the 1960s through the 1980s. In their personal and professional lives, the graduates of East Orange Catholic High School serve others in many ways. The Association provides another expression for their generous spirits, and allows them to show their gratitude for all they have been given.
What we do:
- Hold an all-class reunion each year.
- Maintain a network of Class Representatives.
- Maintain a contact list of graduates.
- Provide annual scholarships to female students attending high schools in the Archdiocese of Newark under the auspices of the Sisters of Charity.
- Assist individual classes interested in holding their own reunions.
- Present the Sister Eileen Bradshaw Caritas Award annually to a deserving alumna.
- Publish the “EOCH Re-ECHO” newsletter once a year.
