Is there a fundraising commitment?

Similar to most Catholic schools, tuition at St. Angela Merici does not fully cover the cost of providing high-quality education. As a result, the school relies on its families to support two major fundraisers per year (Malley's Candy and Magazine Drive) as well as Sunday envelope contributions in order to maintain its tradition of excellence.
