Help Support Independent Catholic Education




Please consider a donation of your time, talent or treasure. Mother Catherine Academy often needs work to be done in or around the school. Summer months are a particularly good time to offer such help.  You do not have to be a school family to volunteer.  Mother Catherine Academy is appreciative of all community volunteers!



The costs of completing many projects is high, and expenses keep going up. Any help you or your family can offer with the monetary part of completing a project would also be greatly appreciated.  Your donations are tax deductible. Mother Catherine Academy is a not-for-profit, section 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. If you would like to donate money, please write checks payable to Mother Catherine Academy to ensure that your donation is tax deductible. Checks can be mailed to or dropped off at the school; Mother Catherine Academy, 38833 Chaptico Road, Mechanicsville, MD 20659.  Please include your address so that MCA can send you a receipt for your tax filing.
