Parent Organizations

The Lady Crusaders and The Crusader Men's Club are parent organizations composed of parents/guardians and family members of current Stepinac students, alumni parents, and general volunteers.

Both offer a variety of fundraising and social events throughout the year.

These are busy times, especially for working parents who juggle work, home, family and lessons and practices for their children. Volunteering one’s time is a great way to get more involved in your son’s education, his future and the Stepinac community.

You are invited to make a difference in your son’s life by becoming a member of The Lady Crusaders and The Crusader Men's Club and volunteer to help with scheduled events, participate in them, or both. Any volunteer time is greatly appreciated. The activities offer a great way to become involved in the school and to meet other students, families, faculty and administration. Best of all, you will come away with the feeling of satisfaction and pride that you have made a contribution to the Stepinac community.
