This year’s gala, themed Down in the French Quarter, celebrates our award-winning school. At the Academy, the only all-girls Catholic high school in the City of Cleveland, it is our mission to bring a quality Catholic education to the 685 students entrusted in our care so they may change the world as compassionate leaders in a global society. The Academy empowers students to challenge themselves with a rigorous curriculum and explore endless opportunities to find their passions, including the Health Sciences Honors Program, Engineering & Design Honors Program, Global Scholars Program, the Howley Makerspace innovation lab and more! In the 2021- 2022 school year, the Academy provided these young women with more than $2.6 million in tuition assistance.
Our annual “Celebrate the Academy” gala represents an opportunity to showcase your support of Catholic education to a broad and engaged community. In 2022, through the generous support of our underwriters and sponsors, virtual attendees and volunteers, we raised more than $300,000 in net revenue for the 75% of our students who rely on tuition assistance in order to attend Saint Joseph Academy.
