Required Family Fundraising – In order to increase the educational opportunities for SMA students, we will be continuing the fundraising requirement. There is an obligation for families to raise $350.00 over the course of the school year. By doing so, families help bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating a student and the tuition rate. As in previous years, families may bypass the required family fundraising by including the amount with tuition.

Financial Aid Information

St. Mary Academy recognizes the challenge for parents in providing a quality education for their children.  We understand the difficulty and sacrifice necessary to meet the financial weight of tuition.  It is our goal to keep tuition as low as possible while operating the school in a fiscally responsible fashion.  St. Mary Academy allocates a portion of its annual budget to provide St. Mary Academy Grant Aid for qualifying families.

All families are eligible to apply for aid.   A demonstrated financial need is the first criteria.  Financial need is determined by FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment and reported to the school following an application to FACTS.  The Financial Aid/Tuition Assistance Committee will make an evaluation and award aid by matching the ability to pay tuition with resources available.  All financial information is handled in strict confidence.

All students who apply for financial aid/tuition assistance must be accepted and registered for the following school year.  Aid cannot be guaranteed from year to year; families must reapply annually.

Children’s Scholarship Fund – This scholarship is available for new students and Kindergarten and First Grade students. Please visit this website to determine eligibility.
