Financial aid ensures that children and families of all economic means are able to receive exceptional care and a quality education.
While the majority of our students qualify for financial assistance through grants, including the McKay Scholarship Program and Personal Learning Scholarship Accounts (PLSA), it does not cover the full cost of what it takes to educate a student with special needs.
At Morning Star Catholic School, we work with each student, and partner with parents, therapists and medical providers to afford each child the opportunity to achieve their personal best. We offer small class sizes to ensure that our students receive the attention they deserve and extensive therapy offerings onsite including speech, occupational, physical, and behavioral therapies, in addition to art, dance, and music therapy. All of these individualized support services drive up our cost per student.
For the 2020-2021 school year, we anticipate 42% of our students (or 24 children) will require financial assistance averaging nearly $4,260 each, for a total annual need of $102,240.
This year, more than ever, we need your help to make our programs and services a reality for our existing and future students!
Plus, the Martha Greene Lewis Charitable Fund will MATCH dollar for dollar up to $15,000 for every donation given to support financial aid for students unable to afford the cost of tuition.
