WHAT YOU GIVE CAN REMAIN YOUR OWN.People who love St. Catherine’s School know why they want to give. Memories of good friends, good times, and an excellent preparation for higher education and the world beyond make it easy to see why so many alumnae, parents and friends have given to the school over the years. More than 200 members of the St. Catherine’s community have included the school in their estate plans in some way, joining The Arcade Society, which recognizes those individuals who have informed the school of their planned gift.
