What Is The Legacy Project?
For over one hundred and forty-six years, St. Mary’s Academy has served the communities of New Orleans. Excellence in education and spiritual elevation has been the foundation of our mission.
Established in 1867 by the Sisters of the Holy Family, St. Mary’s Academy has produced some of the most successful and influential women of our time.
The number of catholic elementary schools that served our children prior to Hurricane Katrina has drastically diminished. The restructuring of our educational system introduce new challenges that require new and creative solutions.
The “Legacy Project” is an initiative that focuses on bringing graduates together in an ambitious effort to promote the legacy of St. Mary’s Academy. The mission is to develop and implement a plan that will reinvigorate and revitalize our school. This plan will encourage graduates to recognize the vital role they play in the school’s future. The plan will include but is not limited to the following:
- Increasing Alumnae Involvement
- Increasing School Enrollment
- Building Scholarship Endowment
- Marketing School
Many sacrifices have been made by the Sisters of the Holy Family to continue serving our children.
In a time when we are losing so many of our predominant African American schools, it would be tragic to be among that number.
