St. Procopius School is looking to raise $20,000 by May 9, 2017 for the purpose of providing scholarships for those students who, although they seek enrollment in our school’s unique Catholic dual-language program, haven’t the financial means to do so.
St. Procopius Elementary School is the only Catholic dual-language (English/Spanish) school in the state of Illinois. We offer children (pre-kindergarten through eighth grade) a truly unique experience in a faith-based environment firmly grounded in the Catholic tradition of education. As a dual-language school, instruction at St. Procopius is divided between English and Spanish—with instruction predominantly in Spanish in the early years, and transitioning to an even English/Spanish split by the time students reach third grade. The ultimate goal is that, in addition to fulfilling the requirements of the core curriculum, students will be bilingual and bi-literate when they graduate to high school.
We are asking for your help. There are many prospective families who, although their children might bring many other gifts that would enrich our dual-language curriculum, do not have the financial means to enroll. It costs our school an average of $6,200 to educate one student, but our revenues from operations total an average of just $3,700 per student. To make up this gap of $2,500 per student, we rely on the generosity of people like you!
