The IHM School Expansion Project
Immaculate Heart of Mary School is a unique place in today’s world! Nestled on the monastery grounds of Saint Benedict Center, the school has offered a Traditional Catholic Education to Grades 1-12 since 1976. Students begin each day with the Latin Tridentine Mass and are taught by the Sisters MICM and the Brothers MICM.
The IHM Expansion Project will help us reach more young souls! Every gift towards this project will support Traditional Catholic Education and our Catholic Future! God will reward you abundantly!
Help the Sisters Build Up Our Catholic Future!
The Sisters, Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (MICM) made this short video to help promotes the expansion project! With your help the Sisters can leave the construction site and focus on their real job – educating the young!
Please watch the video and consider making a contribution to speed along this project!
IHM School was founded in 1976 by Brother Hugh MacIsaac in a little ranch house, for a handful of students. The original make-shift school building has grown into the present campus through the hard work of the Brothers and volunteers.
In the 1990’s an addition adding a second and third floor brought the enrollement to 120 students, grades 1-12. The completion of MacIsaac Hall in 2016 opened new rooms for the high school grades and freed up space in the old building… that was quickly filled!
Having maxed out our acreage, it was impossible to expand the school unless we could acquire more property.
The ever-growing waiting list of students impelled us to fundraise for 77 acres adjacent when they were made available for purchase. In 2018 our prayers were answered – and the IHM Expansion Project began! The Brothers have worked with professionals to develop an addition that will unify the styles of the present building and MacIsaac Hall. The future facility will provide enough classroom space to seat 25 students per grade, increasing enrollment by 100 students in grades 1-8!
There is a crisis in education in today’s world, especially for Catholic families who want their children surrounded with the same morals at school that they teach at home.
IHM is a true Catholic school. IHM keeps the Catholic focus.
With your help we look forward to offering this lost form of education to even more young souls!
