Bishop Timon-St. Jude has laid the groundwork to build the strongest Timon yet. Our enrollment continues to increase and this September, we welcomed the largest Freshman class since 2005. We continue to excel academically as a school of excellence, providing both college-level classes and real-world opportunities, as well as championship athletics. We are proud to create well-rounded students who are prepared for whatever next steps they choose.
The Board of Trustees recently conducted an overall assessment of our programs and facilities in preparation for a capital campaign. This process identified priorities important to achieving the future goals of Bishop Timon-St. Jude, necessary for the school to continue its mission of providing our distinct Franciscan education to future Timon Tigers. Capital campaign priorities included:
• Upgrades to classrooms, which were recently completed.
• Cafeteria renovations are currently in progress.
• Completion of the Athletic Center, which will soon be finished.
• Generating endowment funds for scholarships, tuition, assistance, academic programs, and deferred maintenance.
To continue our momentum and to help make our plans a reality, we are exploring a $3 to $5 million capital campaign and asking alumni, friends, and members of the community for their advice, guidance, and assistance.
Below is a confidential survey and we ask that you complete. The results will provide us with helpful information on how to position our case for funding, the feasibility of raising significant funds, and general information on how to proceed.
Please accept our thanks in advance for your time and for any ideas you would like to share. We look forward to receiving your completed survey.
