Saint Christopher Academy is excited to accept a very special $437,500 gift from the Keegan Family Courage & Faith Foundation to establish the Keegan Family Faculty Fund in support of our teachers. This foundational gift for a faculty endowment drives forward our shared goal of making competitive teacher salaries a reality.  We are tremendously grateful to Brendan (‘81) and Dana Keegan, and their children Kaylie (‘15) and Patrick (‘17), for their outstanding generosity toward Saint Christopher Academy and our faculty. 

Long-time benefactors of Saint Chris, the Keegans have routinely supported our school in many different ways to help advance our mission. Nearly fifteen years ago they funded the purchase and installation of interactive white boards in every classroom and more recently helped finance renovation efforts to create a beautiful new Fine Arts Center. The Keegan family’s partnership with Saint Chris continues today. They believe that Saint Christopher Academy’s greatest resource is our faculty, who do the hard work each and every day to educate and form our students.

Brendan and Dana Keegan attended our annual auction on March 25th to introduce their faculty fund and explain the enduring impact of Catholic education for themselves and their family.  A St. Christopher School alumnus, Brendan reflected that while he can easily recall all of his St. Chris teachers and many of his grade school experiences, he can name only two of his college professors.  He talked about how the people we meet and the values we adopt in elementary school form a foundation that lasts a lifetime.  

The Keegans are thankful their children attended St. Chris and the former Nashua Catholic so that Kaylie and Patrick could benefit from a Catholic school education, learn right from wrong, and develop a faith in God they can rely upon for the rest of their lives.  Brendan and Dana emphasized the importance of continuing to make this possible at Saint Christopher Academy by supporting our faculty in order to attract and retain talented teachers.
