The Catalyst Campaign is named in recognition of the opportunity before us. With the funds raised, we will further prepare both the St. Pius and Hugo Liberty campuses so that they may fully represent the distinction in education, faith, and community that Liberty Classical Academy has so boldly established.

The momentum of this expansion to two campuses gives us a powerful opportunity to unleash our full potential as Christian educators of excellence. The expansion will be a catalyst to growth— in numbers, in programming, and in influence.

Help us make these facilities spectacular!

Liberty Classical Academy is an independent school and a 501c3 non-profit organization. Liberty does not rely on state or federal government funding and is not affiliated with any church and thus does not receive congregational or denominational funding or subsidies. Financial independence is one of Liberty's significant operational challenges yet it has also proven to be an important strength. Because of this, Liberty has the freedom to operate independently; we are free to utilize the proprietary, K-12 Liberty Classical Academy curriculum with no strings attached. This freedom and autonomy supports the principles of our school and becomes more essential by the day.

Please email or call 651-772-2777 and ask for the Development Department.
