Annual Fund

Designed to meet the immediate, changing and ongoing needs of our students, the Annual Fund is the center of giving at Lancaster Catholic High School. Tuition alone does not cover the cost of the exceptional education offered at Catholic High.

Our students depend on the generous support of our donors to ensure that the quality of all aspects of student life is maintained year after year. The gifts given to the Annual Fund help open doors to a multitude of opportunities for students in the classroom, in the chapel, on the stage and on the field. Teacher and staff salaries, classroom and library books, up to date technology, facility and building maintenance are funded, in part, by the gifts to the Annual Fund.

In the Fall of 2016, the Annual Fund introduced a program aptly named, Margin of Excellence.  Your support of the annual fund allows Lancaster Catholic to prepare students for life after graduation by helping them to grow as individuals and become significant members of our Catholic faith community, strengthen their overall education to be mindful, sophisticated stewards of that community, and expand personal and professional opportunities so that they will in turn, provide opportunities for those who will follow:

GROWING: Financial Aid for Students — In 2015-16, about 53% of students received support in the amount of $1,150,000 in financial aid. This allows us to extend education opportunities to students who otherwise could not afford to be a part of the Lancaster Catholic community.

STRENGTHENING: Teacher Professional Development — The heart of education is its faculty. Professional development opportunities allow faculty to maintain and expand relevancy in the classroom and keep pace with the ever-changing technology needs and demands of students.

EXPANDING:  Classroom Equipment and Technology — Gifts to the Annual Fund support academic initiatives across the curriculum from traditional academic resources to state-of-the-art interactive technology; and,

Equipment and Transportation Costs — The Annual Fund also supports clubs and organizations enabling student participation in extracurricular activities. This level of engagement contributes to the overall developmental and educational experience.

The Annual Fund seeks to continue to offer the caliber of education that Lancaster Catholic High School has become known for without raising tuition. We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the LCHS community and want to share our sincere gratitude for your continued prayers and financial support.
