Our Defining Moment


Case Statement CoverIn 1859, Christian Brothers Academy was created to provide a comprehensive education for young men. The CBA experience has been celebrated and cherished by thousands of graduates and their families.

While CBA has steadily increased academic challenges, the school must make critical changes now to secure its position for the future. To do this, the school must expand its academic offerings and invest in its facilities. With a renewed commitment, CBA will be the preferred choice of school for academic excellence and moral education for generations of young men.

CBA has a strong foundation on which to grow the school’s future by strategically investing in an advanced science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curriculum. Faculty needs specialized training and the facility must be expanded. Space is at a premium as the number of music students exceeds available space, and additional classroom space is needed for increased programs under STEM.

We must address these needs to successfully grow our academic programs. The total investment needed to accomplish these priorities is $5.2 million.

CBA provided me with the foundation to succeed in life and in politics.  I learned the value of civility and respect which is critical when successful outcomes are dependent on working with others.
