100th-Year Anniversary

Click Here to support the next 100 years by making a gift in honor of a special year. 

This year our alma mater will be 100 years old! Alumni are invited to contribute to the legacy of excellence in Catholic eduation by choosing one year from the school’s beginning until now to “sponsor” through a donation — your graduation year, the year you first enrolled, or a year that was significant to a loved one.  It’s a simple and fun way to celebrate the school’s 100th birthday while helping to continue the legacy of excellence in Catholic education that benefited us all.

CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION,  ICCS MIDDLE and HIGH SCHOOL ALUMNI
In celebration of our 100th year, we encourage our graduates to reconnect with their classmates as we prepare to celebrate all of our alumni on April 29th. From January through April, we hope you’ll plan a gathering for your class year, five class years, or a decade get-together.  Be sure to check in on our Alumni Facebook page and share pictures of your gatherings!

Here are some ideas for your “mini-reunions”:

  • Visit the Dixon Gallery or Botanic Gardens and have lunch afterwards.
  • Rent the “Sprock and Roll” party bike for a pub crawl.
  • Gather at Shelby Farms for a walk and toast the sunset.
  • Plan a picnic on the wooden deck outside the high school on our campus.
  • Take in a matinee and go for ice cream afterwards.
  • Host a progressive dinner at yours and your classmates’ homes.
  • Visit the new Downtown boutique hotels for a special cocktail in each.
  • Walk across the Harahan bridge.
  • Meet at Harbor Town, pick up takeout, and enjoy the sunset on the river.
