support Cotter schools


At Cotter Schools, we strive to model the values of faith, service, and community as we encourage and support our students. Our Cotter Schools' Mission is to hold our students to the highest academic standards and challenge each of them to develop their full potential. 

While other Catholic schools have struggled to keep their doors open, we have been blessed to see increased enrollment. Your contribution makes the Catholic school tradition possible for our Ramblers! The gifts received during this time directly impact our students, programs, facilities, and our faculty. 

Please consider supporting Cotter Schools by making a contribution today. Thank you for your consideration.
