As part of enrolling your children in Northern Chautauqua Catholic School, families agree to be a participating member of the Home School Association. This organization is run by a dedicated group of parent volunteers.
The Home School Association organizes fundraising activities, end of the year school picnic and Teacher Appreciation week activities. The fundraising done by the HSA group is an important source of financial support to our school.
The Home School Association’s financial commitment each year is determined by the Board of Trustees and the Finance Committee.
This is a great way for your family to get involved in school activities!

Our progress as a school will be reported quarterly and posted on the HSA bulletin board in the main hallway, in the gym and sent home to parents by letter or email. You may also request an update at any time.
HSA’s annual goal/budget is $60,000. With a donation of $600 per family for the school year, we can meet this goal and help keep our tuition costs down. This can be accomplished by using the fundraising events above or cash donations. Just like fundraising, donations can be made throughout the year. For example, $60 per month or $30 twice per month.
Keep in mind, with fundraising, only the amount above the profit can be used towards a donation amount however, with cash donations, it is the full amount.
*Remember all donations are tax deductible. You will receive a report of total donations in January for the previous calendar year.
