Like the mustard seed of our Our Lord’s parable, Cardinal Newman Academy began small and in humble circumstances. And like that seed, we have grown and changed: we have increased enrollment, changed location, upgraded our facilities and expanded our academic and extra-curricular offerings. Most importantly, during this time something deeper was taking place – our students were growing in wisdom and stature before God and man. (Luke 2:52) With the support of our generous donors, this growth continues.
This year, we again challenged our supporters to continue this growth with a $40,000 Christmas Challenge. Thanks to the inspired generosity of an anonymous donor, we began this year’s Christmas Challenge with a $20,000 matching gift!
Our benefactors make possible the significant academic, spiritual, and personal growth our students enjoy.
Fostering our students’ interest in learning and providing them the skills and habits to learn effectively is at the heart of what we do. Every year, we’re adding new courses, academic resources, and staff that allow us to provide the intellectual and social environment for our students.
Our mission is to form young men and women of faith and wisdom who are committed to Christian service. Every year, our students attend weekly mass, continue their education in the Catholic faith, and pursue a deeper relationship with God and living their faith through service events, retreats, an annual pilgrimage, and frequent reception of the Sacraments.
During high school, our students form friendships that will last a lifetime and develop the interests that shape their future. Every year, we expand our co-curricular and extra-curricular opportunities that build our community, cultivate student interests, and broaden perspectives.
We are so grateful to our donors for helping us exceed our goal and raise a total of $42,494.66! As we begin 2020 and the second semester of the school year, we remember all of our benefactors and their families in prayer and gratitude for the many blessings they make possible.
