Unfortunately, not everyone has the means to provide their children with a Catholic education. In light of our mission, St. Louis Catholic School’s student population is socio-economically mixed, and we are committed to ensuring that no child is denied a quality Catholic education because of his or her family’s inability to pay full tuition.  The Angel Financial Assistance Program allows you to help a family that shares your commitment to Catholic education, but is unable to send their child to St. Louis Catholic School because of financial hardship.  Partner with our Angel Financial Assistance Program to ensure the legacy of Catholic education is available to families who desire a faith-based learning environment for their children.
