2018 Fall Appeal
What a difference a year has made! As the result of donor generosity, we were thrilled to open the doors of our brand-new Applied Learning Center at Cathedral on September 4th just in time for the start of school on the 5th! Because of you, Cathedral students truly are going Full STEAM Ahead!
This historic and transformative facility now provides our students, families, alumni and community with access to the STEAM-based (science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics) curriculum that is essential to remain competitive in today’s professional landscape. This commitment to Cathedral’s future underscores our enduring commitment to fulfilling the Cathedral mission that has served our students so well for nearly 100 years, and that has created unparalleled, life-changing opportunities that otherwise would not have existed.
The completion of the Applied Learning Center, however, does not change our reality: we need your support now more than ever. We are reaching out today to ask you to make a gift to our Fall Appeal that helps Cathedral continue to grow. By supporting our Fall Appeal, you can direct your gift to directly support our determined students, our dedicated faculty, or our ambitious athletics teams.
The annual cost to educate each Cathedral student for this academic year has risen to approximately $16,000. This figure includes everything from life-changing scholarships and our operating costs to all academic and extracurricular programing such as clubs and athletics. Tuition payments cover less than 20% of this cost, and as an independent Catholic school, we rely on donor generosity and support now more than ever to ensure that our scholars continue to get the outstanding education that Cathedral students deserve: one that develops conscientious, prepared and well-rounded leaders of the future.
Below is more information on how your gift will help. A gift of any amount makes a real difference in our ability to help our students lead productive, prayerful, and purposeful lives.
Our Cathedral scholars are succeeding in college and beyond, and donor support has been an integral component in this pattern of achievement. Please make a gift today and help us provide unparalleled pathways to success for Boston’s inner-city students. We thank you for your support and prayers.
