Tuition represents a significant revenue stream for Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School, but it does not completely cover the cost of educating each child. The Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School Annual Fund provides the critical dollars necessary to cover the difference between tuition and the actual cost of providing the best possible educational activities that are essential to the development of our students. Annual Giving and special fundraising events, such as our auction and raffle, allow us to close the gap and continue providing a traditional Catholic education with 21st century skills.
Our Lady of the Lakes offers many scholarships and need-based financial aid scholarships. We believe it is important to provide the opportunity for a Catholic education to all families. Your gift to the scholarship fund will have an immediate impact on the lives of the students at Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School. This supports such programs as the Alumni Tuition Scholarship, Multi-child discount, and Hall of Fame Scholarship.
Our Lady of the Lakes has a proud tradition of athletic excellence. In addition to enhancing physical fitness, student-athletes will learn more about such concepts as teamwork, discipline, competition, and sportsmanship. They will benefit from working with coaches who understand the proper role of athletics. Our athletes are a visible manifestation of Laker pride and are expected to represent our values. A gift to this program directly impacts our continued success in athletics.
Our Lady of the Lakes takes pride in our fine arts programs throughout our entire school. A donation to the Joseph Kretsch Memorial Fund, directly impacts the fine arts program at Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School. The Joe Kretsch Memorial fund was setup to honor Joe and his late fiancee. Joe was in the Laker class of 1999 and an integral part to the drama program. He and his fiancée were killed in a tragic accident in September of 2005, and the Memorial Drama Fund was established in his honor to support the Lakes Drama Club, where he spent so much time and had so much fun. A donation to this fund will directly impact the fine arts programs at Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic School.
Our Lady of the Lakes understands that technology is an important aspect of education and having technology in every student’s hands is vital to their success. Our technology initiative uses digital curriculum materials, student collaboration tools, and individualized instruction in all subject areas with the goal of enhancing student learning. We strive to keep our staff trained on the latest professional development regarding technology in the classroom. A donation to the technology fund directly supports the initiatives of staff development and technology upgrades.
