The Higher Learning Fund for Saint Agnes School and Arlington Catholic High School is the school's program for annual giving. It is the vehicle by which alumni, parents, parents of alumni, grandparents, faculty, staff, and friends provide financial support to help keep Saint Agnes and Arlington Catholic strong. Contributions to the Fund represent real savings for our students and their families.

Why is it so important?
The Higher Learning Fund allows the school to not only operate, but to thrive. It provides for day-to-day budgetary expenditures, from keeping the lights on to maintaining our campus in the heart of the town of Arlington center. It helps make it possible for 30% our students to secure much needed tuition assistance and offsets the cost of tuition for all students by $1,863. It provides our talented teachers with competitive salaries and professional development, so that we can attract and retain the best teaching professionals for our students. It allows us to offer programs and opportunities so that each student can grow to his or her fullest potential.

By making your gift today, you are helping our school stay faithful to its mission and continue shaping tomorrow's leaders.

***Of note, annual gifts of $500 or more automatically qualifies donors as members of Sisters of Saint Joseph Society.
