What is the Fund for Catholic High School?
The Fund for Catholic High School is the school’s program for unrestricted annual giving. It is the vehicle by which alumni, parents, parents of alumni, grandparents and friends provide financial support to help keep Catholic High School strong. Contributions to The Fund for Catholic High School represent real savings for our young men and their families.
Each year, gifts to The Fund help offset The GAP – the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating each student. For the coming school year, The GAP is $2,210 per student. Gifts to The Fund also help support other programs such as need-based tuition assistance, academics, faculty recruitment and retention, campus ministry, athletics, fine arts and extracurricular activities.
By making your gift today, you are helping Catholic High School stay faithful to its mission and continue building tomorrow’s leaders.

Matthew Moreau ’14, a Great Testimony to the Enormous Impact of the Fund for Catholic High
Matthew Moreau ’14, attended Our Lady of Mercy School and graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in May of 2018. Inspired by his sister Maddie, who has cerebral palsy, Matthew works as a Special Education teacher in the East Baton Rouge Parish School System. He contributes much of his success from his time and education at CHS, and he continues to be a part of the CHS family as an assistant football and wrestling coach. Not only was his coaching career inspired by his coaches at Catholic, but also his father, Mark Moreau, was a big inspiration. Mark has spent his career coaching and teaching in Baton Rouge area schools. Without the tuition assistance program at CHS, Matthew would not have been able to attend Catholic High School. Thank you, Matthew, for allowing us to share your CHS experience and for the great service you are giving to our community and our boys!
Please help us maintain access to Catholic High School for all deserving young men and their families. We urge you to make a tax-deductible pledge or gift in support of the Alumni Appeal before December 31st. Being included in the legacy of giving at CHS is what is important, regardless of the amount. We need your participation to keep DEFINING THE DIFFERENCE for every student, every year!
