Alumni Image
Our Johnstown Catholic and Bishop McCort alumni can be found all around the world…some far beyond the halls where our current students walk…and even some just around the corner from 25 Osborne St.  Their legacy of pride, loyalty and tradition, as well as excellence in scholarship and education would not be possible without the continuing support and interest shown by so many of our alumni.
