We can count on the Scecina Community to help

Dear Friends, 

Safety is our top priority at Scecina. Once again, the Scecina Community has come through for the school! This time, many friends responded to make Scecina a safer place for students, staff, and visitors. 

We’re grateful for each and every donation from alumni and friends who helped us raise our goal of $190,000 for safety and security updates. 

The support came from these sources: 

  • A $35,000 grant from the Archdiocese of Indianapolis 
  • A $35,000 grant from the Indiana Department of Homeland Security 
  • $120,000 in donations from alumni, parents and friends of the school, like you!

 We’re grateful for the $20,000 matching gift from an anonymous couple. Their investment was motivational and multiplied the impact of other donors’ gifts. 

Now we can get to work on making several improvements. Here’s what we are planning:  

  • New metal entrance doors that meet today’s safety standards 
  • New security cameras mounted outside of the school building 
  • New security features for the blockhouse and St. Francis Hall 
  • Eight new defibrillators in the school building, blockhouse, and St. Francis Hall 
  • Technology upgrades to provide 24/7 visibility of all school building entrances 
  • New parking lot lighting 
  • Software to document 360-degree views of each interior room and office.

The Scecina Community is known for supporting and attaining educational goals that impact our students’ lives through the annual Scecina Fund. These goals include transforming our academic technology environment; awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships and tuition assistance; renovating the library, cafeteria, and classrooms; and making other improvements. Your generous spirit has really made a difference! 

If you would like to see the recent improvements to the school, I invite you to tour the school. Please contact Rose Branson, donor and alumni relations coordinator, at if you’d like to visit. 

Thank you for serving and supporting our young people in their life journeys.
