Support the Academy
  • The Academy will be funded separately from SI. In other words, we will not use SI tuition or financial aid designated for our high school students for the Fr. Sauer Academy.
  • Once startup costs and annual operational expenses are funded, we will build the Fr. Sauer Academy Endowment to provide a sustainable revenue stream.
