Fall Fundraiser and Joyous Autumn Celebration

Save the Date: Eleventh Annual Harvest Hoedown!

Our Fall Fundraiser, which helps kick-off our 2017-2018 Annual Giving Campaign, supports our school’s academic and enrichment programs, tuition assistance, professional development, technology needs and necessary building maintenance. The Hoedown rallies and unifies the St. Mary’s community around a common cause: to raise money to support our mission to challenge our diverse student body, to grow morally, academically and socially into passionate, confident and Christ-centered leaders of the 21st century. And, it’s a great afternoon of fun!
