MICHAEL'S, This Annual Report gives our school the opportunity to share with each of you the achievements of St. Michael's Catholic Academy during the 2010-2011 school year. Our remarkable students continue to balance academics and extra-curricular activities, excelling in their work and maintaining the esteemed tradition of being a Crusader. During the past year, St. Michael's students have won championships in virtually every discipline and performed more than 6,000 hours of service to help each other, our school, and the greater Austin community. Our Symphonic Ensemble placed First and Second during the past two years in the TAPPS State Championships. Thirty-two percent of our students represent ethnic diversity, with 5% coming from outside the United States. The members of the graduating Class of 2011 were accepted to more than 160 colleges and universities and were awarded more than $10.4 million in scholarships. St. Michael's students continue to soar academically � several graduates last year earned very prestigious awards at universities such as Southern Methodist University and Emory University. Fourteen St. Michael's students have been recognized as National Merit Scholars over the past 5 years � well ahead of most public and independent high schools in Austin. Our SAT and ACT scores are more than 20% higher than national averages. Indeed, it is a great time to be a St. Michael's Crusader. I want to express my gratitude to each of you for your continued support of SMCA. With your help and God's blessings, we will continue our mission of inspiring our students for life.

SMCA Annual Report 2010�2011 | 7 FAITH LIFE SENIOR LEADERSHIP The Campus Ministry department excitedly inaugurated the first Senior Retreat Team which consisted of 15 seniors who worked closely with the Campus Minister to develop and implement the underclassmen retreats. KAIROS The Kairos retreat program for seniors continued to thrive as we had a record number of attendees for this four-day optional Christian awakening retreat. Attendance included many faculty and staff members as well as senior Kairos leaders who shared generosity, spirituality, and time as they led small groups and gave talks on how to gain greater spiritual awareness. SMCA was excited to be instrumental in bringing a wonderful program to the Diocese of Austin: Catholic Heart Work Camp. In July, we were the host site to over 220 high school students from all over the country who participated in this week-long camp combining service work in the Austin community with Catholic spiritual programming. On the last day of the camp, we warmly welcomed Bishop Joe V�squez to our campus for the first time. The Service-Learning Program continued to develop as 10 students logged more than 100 service hours last year to receive the Mother Teresa Award for Service. We also added a monthly Saturday service outing. The student body raised a significant amount of money for earthquake relief in Haiti through Catholic Relief Services. We also provided over 200 Thanksgiving meals to less fortunate families through Catholic Charities. 8 | SMCA Annual Report 2010�2011 ATHLETICS The 2010-2011 athletic season was exciting and successful for the St. Michael's Crusaders.

For winter sports, both men's and women's Soccer made it to the playoffs, along with the men's and women's Basketball teams.

An endowment is money contributed to the school from a donor which is then invested by the school. Investment earnings from the endowment are then used for scholarships and other initiatives. If you are interested in creating a legacy that will benefit St. Michael's for years to come, consider endowments. SMCA Annual Report 2010�2011 | 13 ANNUAL APPEAL St. Michael's Catholic Academy is a unique school. The small classes, highly educated teachers and extracurricular/curricular programs depend on the Annual Appeal to keep SMCA exceptional. Similar to other schools, tuition alone does not fully cover the cost of educating our students. The school moderates tuition increases allowing St. Michael's education to remain competitive and affordable. Tuition, together with a successful Annual Appeal, allows St. Michael's to maintain operations. The 2010-2011 Annual Appeal Campaign Mind the Gap was a huge success! With the generous support of the St. Michael's Community, we were able to raise over $203,000! A big thanks to our Campaign Co-Chairs, David and DeeAnn Smith and our Annual Appeal Committee. Thank you again to our generous donors and volunteers that helped to ensure this year's success!

MICHAEL'S CATHOLIC ACADEMY BEQUESTS Consider a perpetual gift to St. Michael's. By including St. Michael's Catholic Academy in your will, you can be a part of the education of future generations. You can bequeath a percentage of your estate, a fixed dollar amount, or specified personal property to St. Michael's Catholic Academy. CASH & PLEDGES Cash gifts are immediately available for use by St. Michael's. Cash gifts may be unrestricted or restricted to special projects. Pledges enable donors to show support immediately and pay when convenient. DEFERRED GIFTS Your tax advisor can discuss various trusts and other forms of deferred contributions that can benefit St. Michael's Catholic Academy and provide life income for you or your loved one. LIFE INSURANCE A gift of life insurance is a wonderful way to make a significant gift to St. Michael's Catholic Academy. An existing policy may be donated or a new policy purchased. St. Michael's should be named as the beneficiary and premiums are tax deductible. MATCHING GIFTS More than 1,000 employers will match gifts to St. Michael's Catholic Academy. Obtain matching gifts forms from the personnel office of your employer. 18 | SMCA Annual Report 2010�2011 PERSONAL PROPERTY Art, antiques, jewelry, and rare books are examples of gifts of personal property that are deductible for income tax purposes at their fair market value. REAL ESTATE Gifts of real estate usually allow the avoidance of the capital gains tax and provide a charitable deduction. Lifetime occupancy of a donated residence may be retained. SECURITIES Appreciated stocks or bonds can be donated to St. Michael's and may be deducted for income tax purposes at full, fair market value on the date of transfer with no significant capital gains liability. UNITED WAY You can make contributions to any 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization of your choice through United Way. Ask your United Way representative how to designate St. Michael's Catholic Academy as the recipient of your United Way contribution. PLANNED GIVING: Planned giving may be defined as a method of supporting a nonprofit that enables donors to make gifts larger than they could make from their regular income. While some planned gifts provide a life-long income to the donor, others use estate and tax planning techniques to plan for charitable giving in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor's estate. Whether a donor uses appreciated securities/stock, real estate, partnership interests, personal property, life insurance, a retirement plan, trusts, or an annuity, the benefits of a planned gift can make this type of charitable giving very attractive to both the donor and the nonprofit. By contrast, gifts to the annual fund are generally made from a donor's discretionary income, and while they may be budgeted for, they are not considered planned giving. One donor who understood the value of maximizing a planned gift was Monsignor Richard McCabe. Monsignor McCabe worked with the founding members of the school to create St. Michael's Catholic Academy, and was widely considered a beloved friend of the school. At the time of his passing, Monsignor designated St. Michael's as the beneficiary of a $100,000 life insurance policy. By only paying a small amount for the policy, he was able to make a significant gift in the form of an endowed scholarship to help minority students with a financial need attend St. Michael's. Monsignor McCabe's planned gift will ensure his legacy at the school will live on in perpetuity as an endowed scholarship for generations of students. SMCA Annual Report 2010�2011 | 19 HONOR ROLL OF DONORS The Honor Roll of Donors is made up of parents, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni and friends whose annual gifts amount to $250 or more.
