The Academy of Our Lady of Peace is a Catholic elementary school. In 2020, financial responsibility for The Academy was returned from the Archdiocese of Newark to the School Board and Our Lady of Peace Parish. The Academy relies primarily on tuition to fund its operations, but tuition covers only a portion of The Academy’s operating costs. Fundraising, led by the Home School Association (HSA) and The Academy of Our Lady of Peace Foundation, plays a critical role in covering expenses not handled by tuition. Since 2010, the Foundation has helped families and students in financial need.
Sponsored by the Foundation, The Academy Pledge is a three-year gift toward a $500,000 goal.
All Foundation proceeds are used for the benefit of The Academy and its students. The Foundation operates with minimal administrative expenses. Donations are tax-deductible, as The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Working together, we can ensure that this gift of Catholic education within our community will be available for current and future generations. The Academy’s students, parents, teachers and staff – all of us – are grateful for your generosity.
The Academy of Our Lady of Peace Pledge
The Academy of Our Lady of Peace kindly asks you to make a three-year commitment to keep our school sustainable for the benefit of our children and families.
The Academy Pledge is a financial pledge to The Academy of Our Lady of Peace Foundation in a total amount expected to be paid over a three-year period (2020 to 2022). The goal of the Pledge drive is to attain a total commitment of $500,000 by December 31, 2020.
