Each year Vincentian has participated in the winning State scholarships. It
holds the unique distinction of winning eight out of fifteen allotted to Albany
County. Every opportunity for the development of one's abilities is afforded by this
school. Three types of diplomas are awarded by the school: College Entrance,
Academic, or Commercial. The College Entrance diploma includes such subjects as

background for either college or business, whereas, the Commercial diploma is
awarded for a course which consists only of commercial subjects.
