For the past four years, Assumption, Mercy, Presentation, and Sacred Heart alumnae have participated in #RivalsUnite4Girls, an annual fund challenge between all four Catholic girls’ schools in Louisville.
As we face the challenges posed by COVID-19, we know many of our current and future families will face financial hardships and we want to continue to provide the quality education each student deserves at all our schools. We know there will be a growing need for financial assistance in the days and months ahead.
Now in our fifth year, all four schools have decided that we want to come together in support of education and take out the competition element of this challenge. During this time of uncertainty, we are standing together. We also wanted to extend this invitation beyond our alumnae and invite all of our community to participate this year.
We understand that many of you are experiencing economic hardships yourselves and understand that right now you may not be able to participate. However, if you are able, we invite you to stand with us as we come together as four schools with one goal – ensuring that all our students can continue to learn, grow, and achieve.
Thank you for joining us and for making a difference in the lives of current and future Rockets!

“While I was a student at Assumption the best parts of me were nurtured,” said Monica Hardin ’00, an alumna of Assumption High School. “I am forever grateful to be a part of this sisterhood and to receive the rights and responsibilities that come along with it. That’s why it’s so important to support this campaign to help other young women who come after us.”
