Thank you for your cooperation.

Capital Campaign  

The expansion of ASB facilities includes a Library and Innovation Center.  What is an Innovation Center?  A "maker space" that encourages student collaboration and facilitates science projects that focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).  There will be 3D printers, virtual reality, and the most up to date technology tools, all at our students finger tips.

With only $750,000 left to raise, together we can reach our goal!  Thanks to our many generous donors for your support.


Standing SCRIP orders will be sent home in the Wednesday envelope on February 12th. Don't forget that you can reload your PCC SCRIP cards online HERE, or in the store. Each time you load money onto your PCC card, ASB receives a 5% rebate. For questions, please email the Scrip Team

ASB Scrip is being sold this weekend at St. Bridget Parish after both the Saturday 5PM Mass and Sunday 9:30AM Mass. This an easy way to give back to ASB School; gift cards are purchased by ASB at a discount and sold to you at face value.
