"Tee"-ing our Students up for Success

"Tee"-ing our Students up for Success

We had a MIGHTY day out on the golf course for our annual Fore the Macs: Playing it Forward Golf Outing on Thursday, August 25, 2022. Thank you to everyone who joined us for Tee-ing our students up for success. Rain or shine, our Mighty Mac community never fails to support our Macs!

Your support to the Golf Outing directly impacts our legacy students with the Tradition of Excellence Scholarship and helps make the dream of a Mother McAuley education a reality for so many families. Thank you for continuing to support the mission of Mother McAuley and all that our history and heritage commands, so we can remain an exceptional center of learning for young women across the Chicagoland area.

We are grateful to our generous alumnae, parents, faculty, staff, and friends for partnering with us to offer the McAuley Lifetime Advantage to our Mighty Macs!

It's not too late!
Support current Mighty Macs today!

MMc & BR Band/Orchestra Nashville Trip

Mother McAuley & Brother Rice Band and Orchestra students traveled to Nashville over Spring Break for an incredible trip full of music.

Our Mighty Macs visited the Grand Ole Opry, recorded at RCA Studio B (the same studio used by Elvis, Dolly Parton, Chet Atkins, and so much more), performed at the National Museum of African American Music, saw Elvis Presley's Piano, and even spotted a celebrity along the way!
