The Way We Were Class of 1977 Legacy Scholarship

Tax deductible
Hi, my name is Brigitte Andrade and I would like to introduce "The Way We Were Scholarship" a wonderful legacy project that the Saint Vincent Academy Class of 1977 has created.

Founded in 1869, Saint Vincent Academy is Newark's only Catholic, college-preparatory high school dedicated to educating young women from diverse backgrounds – many of whom face societal and economic challenges. Sponsored by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, the Academy is located in Newark, New Jersey and is committed to empowering urban women with both rigorous academic learning and life-enhancing Gospel teachings. The school is now celebrating 155 years of education.

The Class of 1977 is committed to raising funds for a legacy scholarship in honor of their class theme song, "The Way We Were" by Barbra Streisand, to benefit students of St. Vincent Academy.

We have produced a Saint Vincent Academy History Book! The book features a comprehensive account of the school's history, complete with captivating images and era-appropriate illustrations, which can be pre-ordered at

We hope that this engaging and informative history book will serve as an effective tool for fundraising efforts for small and large donors alike. We thank you for your continued support of this legendary institution.

This scholarship money will be directly used for helping to SUBSIDIZED or pay a FULL TUITION of a Saint Vincent Academy student. The 2024 full tuition cost is $16,349 per student and the students only pay $5,800, and the rest is subsidized with fundraising from the school and its various programs.
There has not been a increase in tuition in 5 years!
