Support Beyond Tuition

We appreciate and value the incredible support our school families and friends of St. Monica provide our school. These efforts help keep St. Monica Catholic School’s tuition as affordable as possible, further enhance our children’s academic development, maintain our excellent facility and teachers. We try to offer various ways for people to get involved and support the school and realize that not all ways are for everyone. Since it can be difficult to understand what they all support, below is an organizational structure of each fundraising program—who coordinates, when they occur and how they benefit our students.  Thank you very much for your support of time, talent and treasure. Your dedication helps us reach our goals and support the mission of St. Monica Catholic School!
