Invest in Catholic Education
Villa Angela- St. Joseph High School embodies today’s Catholic Church, rich in the racial, cultural,
economic and other diversity found broadly in the Diocese of Cleveland that is our home. Having merged
from the great traditions of St. Joseph High School and Villa Angela Academy in 1990, VASJ is the only
Catholic High School to be sponsored by both the Marianist Brothers and Ursuline Sisters. We thank you
for your desire to support our school’s mission as we continue to educate students and transform lives
through faith and academic excellence. After four years with us, our students graduate as young men and
women prepared for leadership and committed to service.
Educating our students, developing their potential and providing opportunities comes with a cost that
is not fully covered by tuition. The office of institutional advancement promotes the mission of VASJ
through its development, marketing and communication efforts. The office of institutional advancement
also exists to engage alumni/alumnae, parents, students and friends in order to build relationships and
encourage the investment of time, knowledge and financial resources.
Annual giving is essential to the success and sustainability of VASJ. Your gifts and support of fundraising
events helps us to secure funds for operating expenses, academic and athletic programming, tuition
assistance to families in need and retaining qualified faculty/staff. The primary vehicles for annual giving
are the Merici-Chaminade Annual Fund and the Viking Athletic Fund.
We need everyone’s engagement from our alums and parents to all of our faculty/staff and friends.
gift is important and with your investment we can continue to create a bright future for VASJ!
