Each year St. Martin of Tours Academy hosts a fundraising event. The purpose of this annual event is to raise money to help with operational expenses which enhance the educational experience for the 200 students who attend our school. Although parents pay annual tuition for their children to attend, there are still many needs at the Academy that extend beyond the financial reach of what the annual tuition covers.
We are very proud of our school which has been offering students an excellent academic foundation, with an emphasis on moral development and life skills, for 69 years.
At St. Martin of Tours Academy, our students are preparing to become good citizens while learning to create a better world around them.
