St. Jarlath is a place where the hope-filled presence of the Holy Spirit is felt and experienced by everyone who calls our school community home and also by those who visit us. It’s that same Spirit facilitating growth of all kinds, from enrollment to the quality of programming, structural organization and institutional stability. Over the past three years our enrollment has climbed from 70 students to 127, representing a 81% increase over that time. Through the intercession of the Holy Spirit and generous benefactors and foundations, Catholic education is not only being sustained at St. Jarlath, it is being strengthened.
As our enrollment has increased, so too has the need for tuition assistance. This need far surpasses the funds we have on hand for financial aid. Balancing the needs of our families with our limited resources is challenging to say the least. The majority of families receiving assistance at our school in essence receive a discounted tuition rate, lowering the overall revenue needed to effectively operate our school.
We need to the support of generous benefactors like you to help bridge this gap, making it possible for us to serve our families who desire a Catholic education for their children. Strong, voluntary financial support is vital to maintaining the school's high quality programs and outstanding faculty. If you believe in our program, its values, and its importance to our community, we need your financial support.
Gifts to the school may be made in a variety of ways: participating in eScrip, through a gift of cash, by check or credit card, company matching gifts or through a bequest or charitable lead trust, to name only a few. We are pleased to work with you in structuring gift opportunities that ensure your philanthropic goals are met while best supporting the needs of the students at St. Jarlath Catholic School.
