Since 1953 St. Lucy School has relied on the generosity of our St. Lucy family of current parents, alumni families, grandparents, parishioners, and local businesses. We are grateful for this wonderful community!

Ways to Support St. Lucy School

Tuition covers only a portion of the full cost of education, so a donation at any level makes a difference and is sincerely appreciated. Stewardship provides our vibrant school community with the resources it needs. With your support, St. Lucy School is able to provide highly-qualified and dedicated teachers and staff, the most current curriculum and technology, and a comfortable and safe learning environment, all supported within our welcoming community.

St. Lucy School students are developing athletes and musicians, scholars and writers, scientists and teachers. While their talents differ, we share a common dream for them- that their St. Lucy Catholic education will prepare them for life and the challenges that lie ahead. Our students work to develop their full potential as engaged learners, active Catholics, and responsible citizens. We invite you to become part of this success by donating to the school.  We are honored to receive any gift made in memory or in honor of a friend or loved one.

“Lightning the Way” Annual Appeal

Your gift to the Lighting the Way Annual Appeal is received with gratitude to help support the true cost of educating the whole child. Your donation will benefit curriculum and programs, teachers and faculty, as well as maintaining our campus and facilities, while helping bridge the gap between tuition and true cost of education.
