Building on Our Tradition

My Dear Friends of Rockhurst,

Rockhurst High School is a special place.  

The reason our institution is unique comes from the people who have devoted themselves to Catholic education in Kansas City, animated by the Jesuit Vision, for more than 107 years.

Our students, faculty, alumni, parents, administrators, and staff stand out for their commitment to academic and co-curricular excellence, character of achievement, vibrancy, creative innovation, authentic spirituality, and heartfelt aspirations to be “men and women for others” committed to God’s greater honor and glory.

Join me now in watching this short two minute video that looks to what’s ahead for our special tradition.

We remain rooted in our Jesuit mission.  We are Rockhurst!

As the Jesuit preparatory school in Kansas City, Rockhurst High School has always been considered a model for forming leaders who inspire positive change in the world.  We are proud of our service to the community and how our students distinguish themselves as young men of competence, conscience, and compassion.

Your gift to the Building on Our Tradition campaign makes a difference for our students.  With your support, we will create and sustain innovative learning spaces on the Greenlease Memorial campus to help our students to reach their God-given potential.  You will also assist in establishing tuition assistance opportunities to directly care for less fortunate families who dream of sending their sons to The Rock.  

Our goal is to raise $2 million by June 30, 2018, to close the campaign, so our next president, Mr. David J. Laughlin, can begin a fresh administration with even more visionary ideas for the future.

Not a day goes by that someone doesn’t mention Rockhurst High School’s tradition to me.  The Rockhurst High School National Alumni Association slogan is, “Your School Never Leaves You.”  The faithful carries Our School with them all the time, because of the spirit of our collective tradition that keeps Rockhurst High School strong. Please offer your support today.

With prayers for God’s best blessings upon you always, I remain,

Gratefully yours,

Rev. William T. Sheahan, SJ
Interim President, 2017-18
