2015-2016 Annual Fund Update

Queen of Peace High School is dedicated to Faith, Family and Future.  Through ongoing curriculum enhancements, technological upgrades, service and leadership projects, sportsmanship based athletics, performing and fine arts opportunities and spiritual awareness and guidance, we have consistently stayed true to our mission of Catholic education that serves each student and leads them towards success.

The Annual Fund was established to assist the school in financing general needs that tuition alone cannot provide.  Gifts to the Annual Fund are Unrestricted and are dedicated to areas of greatest need within the school.  Today marks the beginning of this year’s Annual Fund.

To help keep the rising cost of tuition as low as possible, your gift may be used for:

  • Tuition Assistance
  • Scholarships
  • Athletic Programs
  • Student Services
  • Student Technology
  • Faculty Professional Development
  • Building Maintenance

We invite you today to join us in reaching our 2015-2016 Annual Fund goal of $250,000.
