St. Laurence constantly strives to promote, support and improve the academic experience through alumni relations and fundraising.
The Office of Institutional Advancement is committed to acquiring the financial resources and other support necessary to sustain our tradition of excellence, keep our alumni involved and up to date and inform prospective students and their families of the excellent educational opportunities that await them here at St. Laurence High School, the school “Where Leadership Begins.”
St. Laurence must continue to provide the best facilities and opportunities to our students. Please take the time to review our short-term development strategy and know that your support will make a lasting impact on the school.
The O’Toole Scholarship is awarded to the top twenty five students who test at St. Laurence. Only students who test at St. Laurence on January 12, 2013 can qualify for this scholarship.
