FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE!

Saint Mark Study Grant Program helps many of our current families meet the cost for a child’s education.

If a family qualifies for assistance for their Middle School student, and if the economic situation does not change significantly from year to year, the same award is likely to continue throughout a child’s entire academic career.
