HCS has a long and proud history of educating students that become successful and contributing members to our community. While many changes have occurred in the history of the system, one thing that has remained the same is the quality of education the students receive. The cost per student at HCS continues to increase. While financial aid is offered to families in need, HCS can’t continue to do this alone.


Your donation can really make a difference. With your support, we can continue to provide an excellent education to area youth and sustain our long-standing history of producing the highest achieving students who become contributing members of our local communities.


Your assistance will further our mission of nurturing and educating children through academic excellence, spiritual formation and development of our students. Your involvement – whether through current fundraising activities, donations or volunteer work – builds and strengthens HCS and creates a vibrant community of support building a strong foundation for the future. Consider a donation to help keep Catholic Education alive and strong in the Holyland!


Be watching for more updates on the Alumni of HCS! We are still in need of many years worth of graduates. If you or someone you know happens to have an eighth grade graduation picture, we’d love to see it. Please consider scanning a copy and attaching it to the form below!
