You can be the
to make a difference
in the future of our students, most of whom are from families of limited economic means. We rely on the generosity of people, businesses, foundations and other community organizations to support our families in their efforts to provide a solid education for their children.
Saint Adalbert is not just a school; it's a movement that was born out of a parish on a mission. In 1961, we merged with the first and only African-American Roman Catholic Parish in the Diocese of Cleveland. Back then, this church was described as “one of the noteworthy and outstanding missions in the city.” The same words could be used to describe Saint Adalbert today.

THE POWER OF ONE SOLUTION
Consistently adding students for six straight years has presented fiscal and facility challenges, hampering our efforts to meet the diverse needs of our students and families. Currently, the school is over capacity and relies on several temporary mobile units for classrooms, IEP support, reading intervention, and office space.
The increased cost of acquiring, training, and maintaining a highly qualified staff while providing well-designed, high-impact curriculum and programs for our increased student population has also become a challenge. Financial demands extend beyond the school day, since the number of students arriving for breakfast and remaining after school has grown by over 300% in recent years.
