As Catholics, we are people of “good news”, which is the literal translation of the word “gospel”. We are also a people of hope. St. John XXIII helps students excel in a nurturing, safe, and traditional Catholic school climate that celebrates faith, diversity, leadership, and service to others. We educate our students for the long haul. We foster and encourage a sense of curiosity, critical thinking, and creativity. We provide students the ability to communicate about a wide range of issues with a wide range of people, and thus prepare them to be well-rounded individuals and citizens. Their education here will provide growth and opportunity throughout their lives. This is part of what makes a St. John XXIII Catholic School education so special. Because our school provides a superior standard of academic excellence and prepares students to succeed in a rigorous secondary education, our students become that beacon for good news and hope in our society.
After tuition and the Parish investment into the school, the Annual Fund is the primary vehicle for supporting the school’s operating needs each year. This is the fundamental way you can support the mission of St. John XXIII Catholic School. We are very fortunate that Holy Family Parish supports us, but there are many costs associated with running and maintaining our campus facilities. This is why we are asking you to support the St. John XXIII Annual Fund Drive – to narrow the gap between the amount St. John XXIII Catholic School receives in tuition/parish aid and its actual operating costs. We want to minimize any necessary increases in tuition in order to keep a Catholic education as affordable and accessible as possible for all families. While the school administration and school board invest significant effort into efficiently managing and minimizing our operating costs, the goal to help bridge this gap is still $100,000.
