Whether a proud School of the Madeleine student, graduate, parent, grandparent, parishioner, or friend… you are a member of our community! We hope you will stay connected to the Madeleine and preserve the friendships that foster our next generation of students!

Your gift is an investment in our school’s students, faculty, and staff, and will pay dividends in the lifetime of achievements of a Madeleine graduate. Your gift helps:

  • Create rigorous and innovative academic programs that prepare students for a dynamic future.
  • Recruit and retain exceptional faculty and staff.
  • Maintain a talented and diverse student body through need-based financial assistance.
  • Deliver a robust Catholic education in recently remodeled classrooms, and help fund the future Dominican Learning Lab!

For the past 6 years, 100% of our current parents support the MAD Annual Fund!



Other Ways To Give:

THE DOMINICAN LEARNING LAB – Education Beyond the Classroom!

The Madeleine is planning new instructional space in the former convent building, where students can develop their passions and STEAM skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Math. The Chapel and conference area will serve our extended community as a space for prayer and reflection.
