Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

As part of our faith community, parents are encouraged to participate in the spiritual, intellectual, and social development of their children.  The enthusiasm and dedication of parent volunteers contributes to the school’s warm atmosphere and plays a vital role to our school’s success.  Please consider giving your time to one of these wonderful opportunities.

Get Involved


Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Catholic education. In fact, we intentionally set the tuition rate lower than the true cost of education because it is our mission to make a Catholic education accessible to as many families as possible. Fundraising, therefore, becomes a part of our mission and gives us an opportunity to actively help one another give our children the Catholic education we all value.
