The school board launched a capital campaign in May to raise $3.2 million.

So far, the board has reached 75 percent of its goal with the help of 56 donors. 

The money will go toward the county's four Catholic schools; St. John the Evangelist, St. James, All Saints and Seton Catholic Central High School. 

It will strengthen the learning environment by creating new programs, upgrading technology and learning spaces.

The Catholic Schools of Broome County president says they must keep improving to provide a better education. 

"The technology is ever changing so we always have to be upgrading," said Elizabeth Carter, the Catholic Schools of Broome County president. "Then, we are preparing them for the future."

Nearly 1,000 students are enrolled at the schools.
