The Cardinal Newman Alumni Association is made up of alumni from both Cardinal Newman and Ursuline High Schools who wish to give back to their alma mater. Members of the Alumni Association attend and volunteer at many school-related social events including Cardinal Newman's Homecoming, Fun in the Fall Wine Tasting & Polenta Feed, Ursuline Crab Feed, Spring Legacy Gala, and the Alumni Golf Tournament.

This committee has established the Alumni Legacy Scholarship Endowment Fund making it possible for children and grandchildren of Cardinal Newman alumni the chance to continue the legacy of a Cardinal Newman education.

Alumni Scholarship Fund

The Cardinal Newman Alumni Scholarship Fund supports the young men and women of Cardinal Newman graduates.  Applicants for this scholarship must complete an annual application form and essay. 

Your gift to this important fund provides funds for legacy families who are continuing the legacy and sending their children to Cardinal Newman High School.

Whether you are a graduate from 1968 or 2023, there is something special about being a “Newman Grad.” Join in supporting the education of today’s Newman students with a gift to the Annual Fund - Alumni Appeal.

Tuition covers the basics of a quality high school education. In order for Cardinal Newman to further advance in academics, arts, athletics, and provide tuition assistance, we must partner with our alumni in raising additional funds that will in return, advance and transform the many young women and men who can call themselves Cardinals.

For over 50 years, our alumni contributions have assured the very best resources for our students and for those who will follow in their footsteps. In most recent years, our alumni have supported us with gifts totaling over $200,000 annually. Alumni giving has helped support many campus improvements over the years including our new Athletic Convocation Center, all-weather track, tennis courts, women’s locker room, field house, and much, much more.

The Annual Fund - Alumni Appeal Program is a financial foundation to the school’s continuing growth and helps us deliver our promise to educate our students into persons of faith, intellect and integrity. Your gifts further support tuition assistance, inspiring others to give and allowing for a vibrant future for every Cardinal Newman student.
