Profoundly Changing Lives
For half a century, we've been a life-changing experience.
Sure, a life can change in a heartbeat. However, more often than not, it takes time. it takes patience, commitment, passion and, of course, a willingness to step in a new direction, to open a new door.
That's the story of Bishop Miege High School. For a little over 50 years now, we have been a profound life-changing experience. Miegians from all walks - faculty, alumni, parents - have dedicated themselves to one God-given mission: guiding and fostering our students to grow in their faith and become disciples of Christ, to strive for academic excellence and to be leaders in their communities.
In our minds, there is no greater responsibility. But, profoundly changing lives is one we embrace with open arms.
Profoundly changing lives is a major challenge, particularly in today’s culture.
The hard truth of the matter is that supporting our commitment to profoundly changing lives at Bishop Miege has never been tougher.
- First, tuition does not cover the cost of education. Every year, there is a $1,000 difference per student. The Annual Fund helps close that gap.
- And second, we need to make up for a reduction of operational funds caused by the opening of a third Johnson County Catholic high school and, therefore, a smaller student population.
- Even though our current student count exceeds projections by more than 20 students, we have 170 fewer students than three years ago. So, we’re faced with the significant challenge of making up for the corresponding loss of tuition revenue.
A harder truth remains unchanged along with our commitment – our need for your strong support.
Frankly, profoundly changing lives will take a profound commitment from you.
To meet this challenge, our goal is to raise and sustain the Annual Fund level of giving to $500,000. An ambitious undertaking, to be sure, but one we know can be accomplished together. In fact, if all previous donors matched their single largest gift to the Annual Fund, our goal would be within reach. So here’s what we’re asking of you.
If you’re a previous donor, please consider a gift of at least equal to your single largest Annual Fund donation.
If, as an alumnus or friend of Miege, you’ve not had the opportunity to make a gift to the Annual Fund, we’re asking you to make a first-time gift at a level that best suits your situation.

$500,000 is a lofty goal. It’s also a necessary one. We are committed heart, mind and soul to profoundly changing lives. The only way we can continue this critical mission is with your profound, unwavering support.
