Foundation

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
