The James L. Collins Catholic School Annual GAP Campaign makes it possible for us to continue our mission of developing the hearts and minds of our students.  Its purpose is to ensure we are able to continue providing quality educational programs to our students. With generous donations   towards our Annual Campaign and disbursements from the James L. Collins Trust Fund, tuition is kept at a reasonable rate and allows  the opportunity for more families to choose a Catholic education for their children. Tuition and fees provide approximately 47% of the school’s operating expenses while the Trust covers 37% of the school’s operating expenses.  We work to cover the remaining 16% through donations and fundraisers; including the GAP Campaign.  An average family at JLCCS pays $5,205 a year for one child to attend, but the actual cost to the school to educate each child for the year is $11,542.  That is a gap of $6,337 per child.  We need your help to raise that last 16% of our operating expenses, which is $227,152 this year!  We feel so blessed that our school, as a ministry of the church, provides a wonderful opportunity for us to develop disciples of Christ.  No gift is too large or too small!
