Since our inception, we have endeavored to provide an educational experience that is a relentless pursuit of excellence. Our students have excelled in academics, athletics and the pursuit of their God-given talents. Our legacy is your legacy. Under the leadership of the Sisters of Loretta, the Sisters of Providence, the Christian Brothers and now the Augustinians, we are united in our appreciation of those who have toiled to create the foundation for the success of our school. We are fortunate at this time in our history that our enrollment is near capacity. Our financial standing is very strong, with a balanced budget year after year, and a healthy endowment fund of $4.3 million. As wise stewards, we have worked hard to maintain our facilities and budget appropriately for our educational expenses. It is now time to continue to build our legacy by planning for the future. With your help we seek to build a new student commons / cafeteria and to provide air conditioning in the original classrooms. We invite you to join us by supporting our project which will impact every student, every day. The commons will provide a space to complement our academic mission. In this highly competitive environment for students, we must pursue these projects which were outlined as part of our most recent strategic plan. We are excited and hopeful that our dreams will become a reality. Thank you for your commitment to providing the best possible facilities for our students. Your gifts, as well as your prayers, will inspire our continued performance for many years to come. Gratefully, Father Richard J.
