Why we give
The older I get, the more I look back on my time at the Abbey and realize how valuable it was. From the people I met to the values that I learned…it had a big influence on me. I owe so much to that place.

"During my time at the Abbey, I had a number of teachers who made a positive impression on me, so after graduating I decided to teach. I actually sent Mr. Sahms an email and apologized to him - I never realized how much work it was to be a teacher."
Every coach and teacher I had invested his or her time in me – not just academically or athletically, but in my whole self. Thanks to them, and to other mentors who believed in me along the way, I developed personally and professionally into the person who I am today.

"Students, after you graduate, use the alumni network. We'll all take a call from someone from the Abbey. And finally, give back. Be a mentor. Pay it forward."
I feel my experience at the Abbey (and my mom and dad) shaped my faith, my desire to pursue a career in public service and my work ethic, and prepared me well for the challenges of working as a prosecutor.

"It was at the Abbey that I was first exposed to a criminal trial, visiting Providence Superior Court as a Third Form student. I was enthralled and I knew this was the type of work I wanted to pursue."
You have no idea what you’ll be asked to do, but Portsmouth Abbey School doesn’t just want to impart knowledge. The School wants us to find out who we are called to be.

"The Abbey taught me that it's not about what we know. It's about how we can flourish as men and women...it's about how we use what we know on Our Lord's behalf."
