“Bluum’s support has allowed me to bring my dream of building a modern, innovative Catholic school to life."

- Andi Kane, Principal

In August, Holy Apostles Church opened the doors of St. Ignatius Catholic School, the first new Catholic School in the Treasure Valley in over 50 years. The Holy Apostles Church community demonstrated strong support for the vision of the school by raising over $11 million to fund the construction of a state-of-the-art school building. ‘20 in 10’ grant funds supported the St. Ignatius Catholic School team in the development of a blended, inquiry-based approach that also incorporates elements of project-based learning, STEM, flexible instructional groupings and multi-aged classrooms. While the Ingatian education model builds on traditions going back centuries, the St. Ignatius Catholic School model is likely the first in the country – certainly in Idaho – to fully embrace core concepts associated with 21st century learning.
