Our teachers and staff are challenged to be continually mindful of St. John Baptist de La Salle’s mission to provide, “a human and Christian education to the young, especially the poor.” They are tasked with implementing our founder’s methods to create an educational environment that is inclusive, holistic and relational, to encourage students to be true to themselves and their individuality; to serve as role models of service, spirituality and zeal; and to concentrate on touching the hearts of their students.
This premiere education comes with a price tag: $10,025 for the high school. That price tag does not fully cover the cost of a CBA education. And that price tag is far from affordable for many families whose children gain acceptance to the school.
This is where you come in…
For the 2016-2017 school year more than 40% of CBA students have been awarded nearly $1.2 million in aid and scholarships.
Your gifts to the Annual Fund help provide these much-needed funds.
Our Lasallian methods have served generations of Christian Brothers Academy graduates, producing leaders in the arts, sciences, business, philanthropy and industry. There has never been a more pressing global need for such leaders and innovators to take on the challenges of war, shattered economies, natural disasters and humanitarian crises.
Our student Peer Ministry team's theme for the year is: ‘Make Your Mark,’ based on the Anonymous quote, “God gave you a fingerprint that no one else has, so you can leave an imprint that no one else can.”
Just as we have charged our teachers and staff to support and nurture the unique spirit within each of their students, these young men and women in turn will be emboldened to Make Their Mark – from the halls of Christian Brothers Academy, to the Central New York community, and well beyond.
Our future and our world depend on these change-makers. And we depend on you to help us continue to offer an environment that values and instills in our kids a thirst for life-long learning; independent thinking; service to those in need; and a respect for all humankind.
Please make your lasting mark on a student by giving generously today.
Join us in unleashing our students’ potential.
Thank you, and God bless you and your family!
