The Office of Institutional Advancement supports, encourages and promotes Joliet Catholic Academy’s mission, vision and philanthropic goals.  It nurtures lifelong connections, fosters relationships with students, alumni, community and other constituents, and provides communications support and public visibility.

The Office of Institutional Advancement also promotes the image (internal and external) of JCA by providing communications media and services designed to enhance retention, enrollment and fundraising efforts.

We encourage all parents to participate and support the school in all fundraising events and activities.


Education is the foundation of every person’s future. However, education for the future is becoming considerably expensive. The Catholic values of faith, worship and service, taught here at Joliet Catholic Academy are invaluable. As you may know, the actual tools of education come with a high price tag. To maintain such a thriving community, Joliet Catholic Academy relies on tuition. However, tuition alone does not cover the present cost of providing one student a well-rounded education at JCA.

Students graduating from Joliet Catholic Academy make a mark on their world through leadership, achievement and service – skills learned as part of the JCA experience. Joliet Catholic Academy’s ability to prepare young men and women who are critical thinkers, who understand t he importance of human dignity and empathy, who respect themselves and other. and who live their faith thought action, depends on the support of many – faculty and staff, parents and grandparents (past and present), alum, friends, businesses and organizations – giving their time, talents, and resources.

Gifts to Joliet Catholic Academy, whether current or deferred, large or small, help to ensure that the tradition of a JCA education can remain strong and that students are able to pursue a secondary school education. As you contemplate your personal support of Joliet Catholic Academy, please know that every gift is important and every gift makes a difference in the live of the young men and women in our care.
