The Ancient Order of Hibernian, Monmouth Division 2, Annual Polar Plunge was created 16 years ago, by our very own alumnus, Jim Shaw '76, to allow Catholic Schools in Monmouth County, NJ to raise money and support students that desire a Catholic education but need financial support to attend a Catholic School.

This event has raised more than $1,000,000 for Catholic schools and has now spread to schools all across New Jersey!  Thousands of students, parents, teachers and staff plunge into the icy cold Atlantic Ocean to raise money to support our great Catholic schools.

Please support a class team, family team, or an individual student as they take the coooollddd plunge into the Atlantic Ocean!  You can join us too....if your BOLD!

The more you raise, the more you earn!  As the school meets milestones on our way to $50,000 the student body will earn the following rewards:
