This Annual appeal to parents, faculty, trustees, grandparents, and friends of Archbishop Hannan assists in bridging the difference, commonly called “the Gap”, between our tuition/fees ($8,720) and the actual cost ($9,275) for educating each Hannan student.

In addition, we do not receive funds or subsidies from the Catholic Church or the Archdiocese of New Orleans.Every gift to the Annual Fund goes directly back to benefit our students.

The success of the Annual Fund Drive depends on participation from all Hannan families.
