All our students go to four year colleges knowing their purpose, ready to “make a difference’ in their world. We are an urban, independent, Catholic girls’ school, dependent on modest tuition and blessings of donations to keep our academic program alive for these amazing young women. Despite the challenges of their home lives, they arrive each morning eager to develop their voices as women of strength. The IKEA furniture would benefit our students; our buildings and donated furnishings are quite old. The photo shows the state of our learning spaces. New, safe, furniture would mean a more positive learning environment.
