The Good, The True, The Beautiful

Founding Donors

In Appreciation of our Founding Donors

Founding donors are those who bravely and boldly invested their prayers, extraordinary time and resources during the 2016-2017 inaugural year of our school, supporting our mission of offering Classical Education in the Catholic Tradition. With a great deal of thought and prayer, we have chosen not to create a list segregating and identifying donations given by amount, basing our decision on the lesson of the widow’s mite (Luke 21:1-4). We have donations that range from time given volunteering to $10 per month to large one time donations. Each and every word of prayer uttered on our behalf, moment of time, and penny is precious to our school. The depths from which each soul gives truly cannot be measured. Therefore, the Founding Donors page is a simple, alphabetical list of souls to whom we are deeply grateful.
In keeping with our goal never to turn away a family for financial reasons, we continue to rely upon support from our donors to support our simple infrastructure costs of salaries, benefits, insurances and facilities costs.
Please let us know if we may count on your support for second school year: June 2017 – May 2018.
Above all else, please, if you will, keep us in your prayers for the upcoming 2017/2018 academic year.
Many blessings to each of you and, again, our sincerest gratitude for all you have given to make our inaugural year a memorable one.
