Thank you for being a part of the PFPS family!
As a proud graduate of catholic education, I am excited to be part of the vision for a reimagined faith-based education in Western Massachusetts. Primarily, my role as the director of development is to lead the school’s efforts in encouraging and securing financial support to sustain the health and growth of Pope Francis Preparatory School.
The Cardinal Fund serves as a financial foundation for our school and it is embraced and supported by those who believe in the value of an education rooted in faith. At Pope Francis Prep, we believe that we each have a role in supporting our school and that we are here to help students learn and grow alongside people from different places, cultures, and experiences. We trust that everyone touched by Catholic education will find success and fulfillment in their own lives. Through the work of the development office, we meet people daily that are proof of this and have chosen to show their gratitude by supporting the Cardinal Fund.
No doubt, our Catholic high school of today is striking different than it was 10, 15, or even 25 years ago. Today, Pope Francis Prep is a leader in the integration of technology into classroom instruction. Our athletics now play on turf fields as often as natural grass. Solar panels provide a portion of the school’s energy use. Our students carry Microsoft Surfaces instead of books and work with cloud-based software in the classroom. All of this is made possible by the generosity of so many willing to support what has not changed over the years – that students continue to pursue their life goals with purpose, enthusiasm, and faith. I look forward to working together in continuing to celebrate our school’s accomplishments and sharing in the plans for, and support of, Pope Francis Prep – the leader of Catholic high school education in Western Mass.
