Father McGivney Catholic High School has experienced many great things over the past five years, including growth in enrollment, academic, faith, athletic and extracurricular offerings, and great faculty and staff. Our ACT scores are already among the highest in our region and our first graduating class achieved more than $2.5 million in college scholarships and were accepted into elite colleges and universities. This momentum has lead to a few challenges.
The generosity of over 1300 donors has already given us our state-of-the-art facility, growth in enrollment to 163 students with an expected 2017-2018 enrollment of 200 students, and room to grow. Our 50 acre campus allows us to expand our athletic offerings and our unfinished areas upstairs allows us to expand our academic and extracurricular offerings.
Due to our amazing momentum, we now need to raise $1.5 million to add additional classrooms, a band and choir room and private meeting space. We need to finish off our soccer field, construct a baseball field and build a weight room. We need additional scholarship and financial aid and operating funds until we reach our break-even point of 81 students per grade in 5-7 years.
We are overwhelmed by the dedication of our supporters in furthering the mission of Father McGivney Catholic High School. In the early phase of the Momentum Campaign, we have already raised $1 million of the goal of $1.5 million. This is where we need your help!
Let us join together our prayers of gratitude for blessings of continued momentum for our Catholic high school. Please prayerfully consider a gift to the Momentum Campaign and know that the students, staff and faculty of Father McGivney Catholic High School continue to include you in our prayers of gratitude, and always, IT IS GREAT TO BE A GRIFFIN!
