Annual Giving Campaign
The 99th school year at Resurrection will be described by many as our most challenging. Educators across the globe were tasked to provide a quality education while educating their students in a virtual, in-person or combined learning model with the possibility of it changing at any moment.
The Res faculty and staff showed their RESilience by not only teaching in a hybrid learning model, but by keeping as many traditions alive as they could including a virtual spirit week, in-person Junior Ring Ceremony and Senior Prom, the athletic program and an in-person graduation for the Class of 2021. As the Res school year comes to a close on June 30, 2021, consider donating to the RES annual fund. Donations to the annual fund support Resurrection’s commitment to providing an all-girls education to the young women.
Resurrection College Prep High School has been sponsored by the Christian Brothers of the Midwest since August 2020 and is the newest member of the Lasallian network of schools around the world. Founded in 1922 by the Sisters of the Resurrection, the school opened in 1922. Central to the Sisters’ mission was the transformation of society by uplifting women through education. Since its founding, Resurrection has enabled thousands of alumnae to reach their full potential and become leaders of Charity and Truth. Today, Resurrection incorporates cutting-edge academic programs and activities that prepare young women for success in college, career, and life.
When the Sisters of the Resurrection recognized that the dwindling number of Sisters would make it impossible for them to continue operating Resurrection College Prep High School, they conducted an exhaustive search to find a new sponsor. After on-going discussions, the Christian Brothers of the Midwest stepped forward to welcome Resurrection into their Lasallian network of schools and an announcement was made in May 2019 regarding the sponsorship transition. The transition became complete on August 28, 2020, and we celebrate that Resurrection College Prep High School has become a Lasallian school in the Resurrection tradition, honoring the school’s past, present, and future.
Lasallian education enriches the whole person through teaching, technology and the development of the student’s cultural, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual well-being. Lasallian education centers on Catholic values and personal relationships, emphasizing academic excellence, faith formation, inclusion, respect for the individual, service and social justice. Lasallian education is rooted in the mission of Saint John Baptist de La Salle, patron saint of teachers, who founded the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (De La Salle Christian Brothers) more than 300 years ago. De La Salle transformed education by forming a community of educators with whom he developed a spirituality of teaching and learning, to give a human and Christian education to young people, especially the poor. Today, the De La Salle Christian Brothers and Lasallian Partners continue to respond to students through advancements in teaching, technology and scholarship. In Lasallian communities, educators touch hearts, stimulate minds and cultivate leadership to prepare students for life, work and service to society and the Church.
