The Catholic faith and Catholic schools are a legacy of RT and Dorothy Tracy. Since 2010, the Foundation has been working proactively with 10 Catholic schools in West Central Illinois. We are focused on four Pillars of Excellence – Enrollment at Capacity, Financial Stability, Academic Excellence, and Catholic Identity. Our goal is for Catholic schools that thrive, not just survive.
- Schools: Blessed Sacrament School (Quincy), Our Saviour School (Jacksonville), Quincy Notre Dame High School, Routt Catholic High School (Jacksonville), St. Dominic School (Quincy), St. Francis School (Quincy), St. Francis Holy Ghost School (Jerseyville), St. John the Evangelist School (Carrollton), St. Peter School (Quincy), and St. Mary School (Mt. Sterling)
