An anonymous donor has gifted $3 million to Cathedral High School Foundation Inc. The Indianapolis school says the gift helps it officially close out its Centennial Campaign, the school’s largest capital campaign, which raised more than $25 million.
The schools says the donation will create an endowment fund that will be used to support enhancements to its Language Support Program and Academic Support Program. Enhancements will include the hiring of two new positions, software purchases, and funding for psychoeducational evaluations which diagnose potential learning differences and psychological disabilities.
“We are extremely grateful for this donation,” says Cathedral Principal Julie Barthel. “Thanks to this gift, we will continue to move forward in providing innovative instruction that not only promotes interdisciplinary learning and exploration, but also enhances our academic approach and strong commitment to exceptional learners.”
Cathedral says LSP guides students with language processing disorders of various types to learn and succeed in high school, college and life.
“Our Centennial Campaign gave Cathedral the opportunity to not only celebrate our great history but also ensure her bright future. Thanks to this gift and the gifts of other incredible donors, Cathedral will continue to flourish for generations to come in empowering the individual greatness within each student we serve,” says Vice President of Advancement Nicole Beasley.
The school says the donors believe in Cathedral’s vision and want to help ensure that any student who wants to attend Cathedral will have the academic support services available to ensure their success.
