Dreams Alive Gala

Dreams Alive Gala

Setting Students up for Success

Meaningful intervention in elementary education is a primary indicator for success later in life. With our partners, TCA has established an educational model grounded in the principles of the Catholic faith that encourages students' individual self-growth, not just academically, but also socially, emotionally and spiritually. With strong academics, 100% of our 350 students in preschool - grade 8 graduate on to high school, and of those who continue onto a Catholic high school, 97% graduate and attend college. At TCA students develop skills and habits to be entrepreneurs of their own successful futures thanks to your suppot.

About Our Event

Hundreds of supporters gather every spring at the Dreams Alive gala to mark Trinity Catholic's commitment to academic excellence. Our sponsors and contributors are an important part of this inspiring evening, which features a cocktail reception, dinner, and presentation of the Thomas F. and Mary J. Shields Founders Award and the Senator Thomas P. Kennedy Legacy Award to honorees for their assistance in perpetuating our mission in significant ways.

Our students are also a very important part of the night as speakers, performers, and presenters, giving our guests an exclusive opportunity to see the impact of their support firsthand.
