East NY Catholic school aims to raise scholarship funds

EAST NEW YORK - An East New York Catholic school is hoping for some big donations at its fundraiser this week, so that many of its students will be able to keep attending. The Salve Regina Catholic Academy has more than 600 students. Around half of them are only able to attend through scholarships because their families can't afford the full tuition, school officials say. The academy is a combination of three other Brooklyn Catholic schools that were forced to close last year over budget issues.
