From May 4 – May 8, five area all-girls Catholic high schools – Mercy McAuley, Mount Notre Dame, Seton, Saint Ursula and Ursuline Academy – are teaming up for a unique city-wide campaign called Girls’ Schools Unite. The fundraising campaign seeks to raise awareness and financial support for all-girls Catholic education in Cincinnati. The campaign calls on alumnae from each school to make a gift to their high school alma mater; all gifts made will be used to provide financial assistance, scholarships and campus improvements for current and future students at the schools. The high school with the highest percentage of alumnae participation will be “crowned” the winner on May 15, 2020.
Alumnae can make a gift online at the website of their alma mater anytime from May 4 – May 8, or they may mail a check dated between May 4 – 8 to their school. The schools’ websites are:
- Mercy McAuley – mercymcauley.org
- Mount Notre Dame – mndhs.org
- Seton – setoncincinnati.org
- Saint Ursula Academy – saintursula.org
- Ursuline Academy – ursulineacademy.org
The five schools have been planning the Girls’ Schools Unite campaign since last fall and made the difficult decision to continue with the campaign despite the pandemic situation. The coronavirus has not stopped the education at each of the schools; critical support is still needed to help each school achieve its mission. The Girls’ Schools Unite campaign is also a way for alumnae to honor the students and teachers that continue their commitment to innovative learning and teaching during this unprecedented time in our world.
