Since the Academy does not have the on-site facilities to host interscholastic practices, games, or meets (outside of wrestling) we must rent area facilities for all practices and games that are not hosted by another school. This grant supported area facility rentals for baseball, basketball, lacrosse, and soccer, and supported new equipment needed for all six Academy teams.
While an Academy education is primarily focused on academics, our program is also based on the centuries old Jesuit ideal of cura personalis, or care for the whole person. Our program aims to provide our students with a variety of opportunities they might not otherwise have. Interscholastic teams allow our students to stay healthy and active, learn leadership skills, figure out how to work together as a team, and create deeper bonds with their fellow students.
Thank you for your long-time support of Academy students! We hope to continue our partnership with Golfers’ Charitable Foundation.
