What is the Saints Fund?
The Saints Fund is an ongoing campaign with three appeals during each academic year. It allows families, grandparents, faculty, alumni, friends, and parishioners an opportunity to financially assist in the school's operational well-being. Each year, the school applies the Saints Fund monies to the area(s) of greatest need within Saint Joseph Catholic School. The focus for the Saints Fund is Scholarships and Classroom Resources.
Each year, your generous support of the Saints Fund ensures that we can continue to keep the promise:
Saint Joseph Catholic School has made a promise to our students and their families to provide an education that is academically challenging and addresses the needs of the whole child. The hard work of our entire school family has resulted in:
being named a top 10% in the nation reading school;
winning regional and state awards in Beta Club, Mock Trial and Science Fair competitions;
placing SMART Boards in every classroom;
expanding the Fine Arts program to include music, band and drama;
building a science lab.
Saint Joseph Catholic School has also made a promise to our students and their families to live by core values that help build character and remind us to live our faith.
Saint Joseph Catholic School strives to create an environment where:
Learning is Innovative
Family is Nurtured
Safety is Paramount
Tradition is Celebrated
Christ is Present
How will your gift be used?
The Saints Fund is designed to generate unrestricted funds to be used in the areas of greatest need. The advisory council, principal, and pastor determine these areas annually based on the priorities generated from their strategic planning efforts.
These areas include but are not limited to improvements, enhancing a chosen department, providing for continued faculty development, and offering tuition assistance. All Saints Fund proceeds remain in the school.
