Keep St. Mary of the Assumption High School Open

Save St Mary's!  We have less than 30 days to keep the school from closing forever!

St. Mary of the Assumption High School is an inner-city school with 100% college acceptance rate and earning over $10 million in college scholarships this year alone.  We need your help now to help our inner city youth.

St. Mary's has been serving Elizabeth NJ and the surrounding areas, building future leaders since 1930.  We need to ensure we can continue. 

There is a final chance to save St. Mary's by raising two million dollars by July 20.  There is a plan in place to secure the long term future for the school.

This task is daunting, but we are confident that we can keep the school open. To be successful St. Mary of the Assumption HS needs your support.

Here’s The Plan: 

Great strides have been made by St. Mary’s this past year which is regaining the respect of students, parents & alumni. They are up against the deficit from prior years. The school is on track to meet the financial challenges & stabilize with their 3-5 year plan in place.   We have strong programs in place with surrounding colleges and organizations to help the children prepare for the future.

St. Mary’s needs your help!
