The Spirit of St. Wenceslaus Award

St. Wenceslaus School has been blessed with many supporters and contributors who have helped the school achieve its mission of providing a high-quality academic program that builds leadership and self-confidence while nurturing a loving relationship with God and encouraging service to others.

The purpose of this award is to recognize those that have gone above and beyond in their unselfish service or contributions to the school.

To qualify for the Spirit of St. Wenceslaus Award nominees must:

  • Have furthered the mission of St. Wenceslaus School through their service and contributions
  • Be a role model for the students of St. Wenceslaus School
  • Have actively and outwardly lived the values of the Catholic faith (not necessarily closed to our non-Catholic Christian families in the school – for example, actively participate in their denomination’s worship and community while at the same time supporting/participating in the mission of the school)

An awards committee will select a recipient of the award each year. The recipient will be honored at the Starry Night Gala and during a school mass.

As part of the award, the recipient will get to designate the purpose of the Spirit of St. Wenceslaus Award fund for the year. This fund will be $500 from the school as well as any contributions that are received during the year in honor of the recipient. The recipient can designate the fund towards the following categories (*subject to change at the discretion of the principal)

  • Tuition Assistance
  • Technology
  • Wenceslaus Endowment Fund
  • Staff Development
  • Other projects benefitting the school
