About the Providence Fund
The Providence Fund allows us to meet our mission by supporting four areas: Tuition Assistance, Faculty/Staff Support, Student Life Experiences and Learning Support. Funds raised at the following special events benefit the Providence Fund throughout the year: Providence Fund Dinner, Grandparents Day, Guerin Catholic Gala (including Fund-a-Need), and Day of Giving.
Did You Know…?
The Providence Fund allows us to meet our mission by supporting four areas:
Tuition Assistance, Faculty/Staff Support, Student Life Experiences and Learning Support
Whether it’s need-based financial aid, academic scholarships or staff discounts, we must strive to meet families where they are and help them attain a Guerin Catholic education for their children.
Faculty and Staff Support
Guerin Catholic High School, founded as a Catholic diocesan high school, is committed to academic excellence. We believe that educational excellence is achieved through the offering of a rigorous and challenging curriculum taught by competent, enthusiastic, and caring faculty. In order to attract and retain the best faculty and staff, we must offer competitive salaries and professional growth and development opportunities each and every year. Without our faculty and staff, our mission would not be possible.
A Guerin Catholic education IS different—we must continue to enhance all of our academic and extracurricular programs in order to offer life-changing retreats, service and pilgrimage experiences, state-of-the-art learning tools and more. In 2020, the Guerin Catholic Gala’s Fund-A-Need raised funds to buy new choir robes for our students.
Guerin Catholic’s Learning Support Program provides extensive individual support for students as they achieve their goals. Through continued development of a student’s skills, they work toward self-advocacy and independent learning. With the help of the student, parent, and the Learning Support Team, an academic plan is developed for each student to ensure growth and success in the classroom.
Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO)
Gifts to the SGO (designated to Guerin Catholic) provide needs-based scholarships to eligible incoming and current GC students. Guerin Catholic has partnered with the Institute for Quality Education (IQE) as our official Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO). An SGO is a state-designated 501(c)(3) that provides financial needs-based scholarships to students enrolled in non-public schools. This program is not only available to individuals, but to companies as well.
