To Be, Rather Than to Seem

Annual Giving

The Academy’s Annual Giving drive makes up the shortfall that tuition revenue does not cover. As an independent Catholic school, the Academy receives no financial support from the diocese or the Catholic Church. To offer our students the best – in the form of dedicated teachers, smaller classes, robust art programming, stellar athletics, and $1,900,000 in financial aid to 22% of our student body — school families are asked to contribute specifically to the 2021-22 Parent Annual Fund campaign. Alumni, grandparents, parents of alumni, faculty, staff and community friends are asked to contribute to general 2021-22 Annual Giving campaign. These campaigns run from July 1, 2021–June 30, 2022.
