ST. WILLIAM CATHOLIC SCHOOL

A Community of Faith, Family, and Learning

You have the chance to make a difference in the education of our students this year on Giving Tuesday. Giving Tuesday is a day that began as a way to inspire generosity during the season of giving. After people finish their Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping, Giving Tuesday is a chance to make sure others also have a great holiday season. 

This year Giving Tuesday is on December 1st, just days away!

With the help of people like you, St. William School can fulfill its mission to be academically excellent. We can do this with  a STEM based curriculum that provides an integrated way of learning that is hands-on.  We would like to partner with A World in Motion (AWIM)  https://www.sae.org/learn/education. Along with curriculum, AWIM offers student kits (20 that range from $10/student to $600/student) to support better understanding of the lessons – Pre K through middle school. Based on donations – our leadership team and staff will decide together which kits/grades will work best with the lessons.

In this time of uncertainty, there’s a fundamental truth that gives us hope – that together we can do extraordinary things. Join us on #GivingTuesday and let’s rally to Support STEM Education at St. William!

Next Tuesday, simply tap on the link to make your donation. It’s that easy and quick. https://cbo.io/d/StWCS or texting StWCS to 56651 and follow the prompts to make and pay for your donation. 

Please visit our registration page for information about attending our school and our school information page – curriculum for more information on our future preschool program!

We are prepared to begin school in the fall as Phase 4 of the AOD plan (below) and are ready to move to Phase 3 – Online Learning, if needed. Please see St. William’s Online Learning in Response to COVID-19.

Here is the AOD’s COVID-19 Preparedness and Response July Update.


Archbishop Vigneron announced a bold, new vision for Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Detroit, challenging the Church to embark on a journey of renewal and re-invention with Catholic schools as the face of a missionary movement.

Mission:
