Please Join Us – Make The Academy Pledge!

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 Our Lady of Peace Parish and The Academy of Our Lady of Peace Foundation. Fundraising, led by the Home School Association (HSA) and Foundation, plays a critical role in covering expenses not handled by tuition. Since 2010, the Foundation has helped families and students in financial need through scholarship awards.

Sponsored by the Foundation, The Academy Pledge raised more than $400,000 from 2020 to 2023, effectively saving the school from closure.

Our goal going forward is to achieve long-term sustainability and continuous improvement. 

We ask for your long-term support – one-year, three-years, five-years, and more. Any and all amounts are appreciated, noting that the Foundation awards approximately $50,000 in annual scholarships.

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.
