Since 1962, our building has stood proudly and served as a beacon of Catholic education on Ocean Avenue. While many rigorous academic programs have been introduced and internal renovations completed, the facade of our building has remained unchanged over the last 50 years and is need of a facelift. Project 2474 has two phases.
The Class of 1970, on the occasion of its 45th reunion, wanted to make a significant contribution to the school as symbol of gratitude and longevity. As the scope of desired work was proposed it became more evident that these repairs required more support than just the Class of 1970. The Class of 1965, wanting to make a gift in honor of its 50th reunion joined in to raise the necessary seed money and challenge the remaining classes to work together to raise the $250,000 needed to complete the renovations. View our challenge page to see each classes’ progress. The “winning” classes will be honored with an engraved brick to be part of the permanent renovations at the entrance way.
Many of our alumnae remember the setting of the cornerstone when the new building was erected in 1962. Perhaps some of our parents participated in that celebrated campaign over fifty years ago. Many individuals working together were able to construct this beautiful edifice on Ocean Avenue. The Dominican Sisters of Sparkill took great pride in maintaining its splendor. Please join us in restoring the glory to our beloved school building and reinstating its pride as a beacon of Catholic Education on Ocean Avenue.
As part of the refurbishment of the front entrance, we will create a beautiful space where contributors can honor or memorialize those who have played a key role in their love of St. Edmund. Gifts of $500 and $1000 respectively will be honored with a brick laid in the shadow of the building on either side of the front entrance.
You can make a gift in a number of ways:
Please know that ALL gifts matter, no matter how great or small. Showing a greater number of individual gifts is equally important as the total amount raised. Many entities like to see the percentage of alumni who support our mission as well as the total number of dollars raised.
