St. Scholastica Family Trees are sprouting up and branching out to create deeply rooted Alumni Family Legacies.
Alumni have been registering their St. Scholastica Family Legacy (at least two family members attended the College) since the project began in November, 2000.
If you have a Family Legacy, please be sure to register - just e-mail us the details at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or print and mail in the the Family Legacy form. A special St. Scholastica Legacy Family Reunion was held in 2001, and a row of Family Legacy trees was planted.
The response has been tremendous. Take a moment to look through the Legacy List and read the family stories. Family groups are listed alphabetically, most often by the member who submitted the listing. Family members are listed in relationship to that individual. Quick links to last name:

However, through a little luck, a lot of love, and the grace of God, Kathy lived to the age of twenty-one. Just prior to graduation, her condition worsened and she was hospitalized. She received her diploma in her bed at St. Mary's Hospital and she passed away on her graduation day. Jennifer says college is not just about the education you get or the grades you earn, but it's also about the relationships you make and the self-discovery you begin. CSS will always have a special place in her heart, and she hopes that her future children will also consider CSS as their college of choice.
