The mission of the MACS Education Foundation
is to enrich our children’s education by raising supplemental funds to support quality programs that will achieve excellence in Catholic Education and have a meaningful and lasting impact on all students. Established in 1993, the MACS Education Foundation has raised over $5 million dollars to provide quality Catholic education. Gifts are raised from parents, family and friends of MACS through the Bridge to Excellence Campaign, which kicks-off in the fall and runs on a fiscal year July 1 to June 30, and through the generosity of companies as part of their matching gift program.
In fulfilling its mission, the Foundation supports excellence in education through funding programs that:
- PROVIDE ACADEMIC ENRICHMENT – The aim is to challenge students through innovative programs such as LEAP (Learning Enrichment Activities Program), Vertical Team Training, Junior Achievement’s Exchange City, state-of-the-art technology like Smart Boards, preparing CCHS students for the SAT, and other unique learning projects such as “Mathcounts”, “…And Justice for All”, and an outdoor garden that allows students a hands-on learning experience through science and community service.
- OFFER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT– When teachers attend educational workshops and conferences they enhance their own teaching abilities and are able to transfer the learning experience on to students in the classroom.
- CULTIVATE SPIRITUAL DEVELOPMENT – Guiding students toward a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ in the presence of a community that works and serves daily to transform this world into a kingdom of justice, peace and love
