Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School (Ss. Neumann Goretti for short) is a private Roman Catholic high school located at 1736 South Tenth Street in the South Philadelphia area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States, in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Philadelphia.

Background

In fall 2004 Saints John Neumann and Maria Goretti Catholic High School was created by a merger of Saint John Neumann High School, established in 1934, and Saint Maria Goretti High School, established in 1955.[2][3][4] The school is located in the former Goretti campus. In 2005 most of the students at Neumann Goretti came from South Philadelphia.[2] During the first school year Neumann Goretti used the Neumann athletic fields.[2] The former Neumann campus became St. John Neumann Place, a housing development for senior citizens.[5]
