For more than 150 years, Catholic schools throughout the Diocese of Nashville—from Lawrenceburg and Loretto to Murfreesboro and Madison and across the mid-State—have made a difference in the lives of young men and women. These schools’ commitment to quality education, taught with the timeless truths of our Catholic faith and offered to all who wish it—regardless of financial status—has produced leaders across all fields, from business to the arts, from medicine to the altar, from athletics to education.
Making that exceptional educational experience accessible as tuition has risen across all of education was the reason the Endowment for the Advancement of Catholic Schools (EACS) was created in 1992. Now celebrating its 25th Anniversary, EACS is committed to supporting the mission of Catholic education by helping to meet the growing financial needs of parochial schools.
Numerous national studies point to the difference a Catholic education makes:
EACS funds are designated for Catholic education within the Diocese of Nashville, primarily for tuition assistance. Now in its 25th year, EACS has provided support through the parochial schools that has benefitted more than 300 families, making approximately 15 awards each year. The fund was created to supplement other fundraising events at school such as Galas, annual funds, capital campaigns.
