  • Support The Welsh Academy

    We believe that in this special year, our class of ’69 could leave a special and lasting imprint for the students who will attend The Welsh Academy, a new middle school at Saint Ignatius for grades 6 through 8 that will serve the unique needs of boys of modest economic needs who primarily live in Cleveland, its inner-ring suburbs, and attend either public or charter schools. The funds our class raises will be put towards the construction of The Welsh Academy building.
