Fall 2021 Cotter Schools Annual Appeal

On July 1, 2021, Catholic elementary and secondary education in Winona transitioned to a single Catholic school system under the administrative leadership of Cotter Schools. Our unified learning community continues a tradition that began more than 110 years ago. Today, we are proud to serve over 1,000 students age 16 months through Grade 12, across four campuses. We encourage every student under our care “to be the difference.”

I am excited to lead this wonderful school community and serve alongside our dedicated staff. We have been richly blessed with new learning and living facilities on the St. Teresa's Campus. Our total student enrollment continues to grow each year. Successes in the classrooms, on the playing fields, and in the auditorium are evident. Yet, as we strive to fulfill our mission to “challenge students to achieve their full potential and use their lives in service of others,” we need your help. A gift to Cotter Schools will directly impact our students, their teachers, and our wider Cotter community. Won’t you join us in this sacred mission? Together in community, we can make a difference!
