A letter from the Director of Development

“I attribute much of my success to Bishop Verot, helping me become the person I am today. If not for the opportunity to go to Bishop Verot, I’m not sure I would have had the academic success at University of Miami, the financial aid Verot helped me to apply for, or even the opportunity to go to the college of my dreams. I also met my fiancé at Bishop Verot.”

My Fellow Vikings, As we come to the end of 2015, the year our Pope declared the Year of Consecrated Life, we reaffirm our committment in the celebration of our 54 years educating students at Bishop Verot Catholic High School. Our mission defines us as we continue building a community of faith and learning in the Salesian tradition, devoted to educating minds and hearts, dedicated to service and centered on Christ. Just stepping on to the campus, with the freshly painted halls and bright, new black and gold lockers, you can feel the enthusiasm. Now well into our third year with the 1:1 iPad initiative, we continue to introduce innovative learning techniques, preparing our students for the future. The library was transformed this summer into a state-of-the-art Media Center, allowing for students to work collaboratively and creatively. The 2015-2016 school year once again welcomed one of the largest freshman classes, emphasizing the importance of combining a strong Catholic Faith with rigorous educational excellence. Your support of Catholic education and the Bishop Verot Catholic High School Annual Fund sustains our future. The cost of a private Catholic education continues to grow, challenging all of us to help make Bishop Verot a reality for future generations of Vikings. No private school, even the most exclusive, operates solely on tuition. Through the generous support of many to the Annual Fund, we continue to educate the future leaders of our community. I invite you to consider a gift today. Non Excident,

“Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full…” Luke 6:38
