At St. Catherine's Montessori, we are proud to be a community with a deep commitment to the school's mission. For over 50 years, we have provided our students with an exceptional education founded on the method established by Maria Montessori and the Dominican charism practiced by our foundresses, Sr. Edna Ann Hebert, OP and Sr. Shirley Owens, OP.
A St. Catherine’s education represents an investment made by generous families, alumni, faculty and staff members, and a wider community of supporters extending back several decades. The school looks to today’s community to join and continue this tradition by giving of their resources, time, and talent. We appreciate each of the many ways you support St. Catherine's.
As an independent non-profit school, St. Catherine's relies on tuition income and philanthropic contributions to support the school's academic needs, maintain our buildings and grounds, grow our campus facilities, and provide tuition assistance for our families. We do not receive support from state or local agencies, the Archdiocese, or a parish. The school has been able to grow and continue as an exceptional institution because of volunteer participation, and a tradition of generous giving from parents, grandparents, faculty/staff, alumni, foundations, and friends.
Throughout the 2021-2022 school year, the Advancement Office will coordinate three fundraising activities to help advance our school mission:
Contributing time by volunteering with the Parent Service Organization (PSO), as Room Parents, or with any of the special events held throughout the school year helps to keep our school strong, and sustains a standard of excellence from which every member of our community benefits.
Is your specialty cooking or finance? Are you a gifted gardener or organizer? We would love to know your interests and specialties and help find ways you can engage with the school. From agriculture to zoology, classroom support to board membership, St. Catherine’s welcomes your talents!
Please explore the ways to give of your time or talent by reviewing the Parent Volunteer Form on the FACTS Family Portal.
