Language Teacher, Matt Sparapani, Publishes 2nd book

Please join us in congratulating Mr. Sparapani on the publication of his new book. He wrote the book with his wife and it is entitled "Hiking Photography." The couple were contacted by Sandiburg Press last May just before they left on their summer travels to ask if they might be interested in teaming up again to publish another book—only this time it would be about how to take great photographs out on the trail and would feature the images they have taken while hiking all over the world. CLICK HERE to read the blog announcement about the book and watch a promo video.

Gloriam 2017 Nets Over $1.1 Million for Tuition Assistance!

On Saturday evening at Saint Ignatius College Prep, the school’s main fundraiser, Gloriam 2017, netted over 1.1 million dollars to help open doors for students in need of tuition assistance. The generosity of over 800 alumni, parents and friends never ceases to amaze us! With the vision and help of our Gloriam chairs, Christine and Paul Minasian, Tiffany and Chris Krubert and Tina and David Ariola, along with over 150 volunteers, staff and faculty, the evening was an outstanding success!

We also want to take this opportunity to thank those of you who contributed to Gloriam as sponsors, underwriters, silent auction and raffle donors and fund-a-need supporters. We cannot express our gratitude enough on behalf of the young men and women in the Tuition Assistance Program. Your gifts help provide the critical funds necessary to allow these students, regardless of financial ability, to receive a Saint Ignatius education. Thank You!

The 1.1 million dollars that was netted this past Saturday evening will provide tuition assistance for a quarter of our 385 students receiving financial aid this academic year! We are deeply grateful for your support of Saint Ignatius College Prep and are ever mindful of the debt of gratitude which we owe to all of our benefactors and supporters.
With blessings and gratitude,Rev. Michael P. Caruso, S.J.John Chandler and the Development Staff at Saint Ignatius College Prep
