Guardian Angel Scholarship Program

Guardian Angel Scholarship Program

Many parents may be wondering:

“How can we afford Saint Mark Catholic Academy?”
An education at Saint Mark is possible for many of our students because:

  1. More than half of our families receive scholarships.
  2. By completing the application, families can receive from $750 to $2,500 for a single child and from $1,000 to $4,000 for two or more children.
  3. The monthly cost per child may be as low as $150 per month or less depending on available funds.

“What can we do to apply?”

  1. Visit the school, meet the principal, Mrs. Carol Donnelly, and learn more about the Guardian Angel Scholarship Program.
  2. Call the school secretary, Mrs. Lori Ryan, at (718) 332-9304, for an interview or just visit the school, between hours 9am to 3 pm, any day of the week.
  3. The Finance Office and Mrs. Donnelly will answer any questions and help fill out the application.

“What documents should I bring to complete the financial application?

  1. Please bring a statement of your annual income and how many people live at home.
  2. Also, please bring a letter from your employer stating your annual income and any statement regarding Food Stamps. In many cases, if you have the completed tax form for 2017, you can submit a copy. If you do not have a copy, you can submit the letter. Of course, all information is completely confidential.

“When do we make tuition payments?”

  1. Parents pay monthly from August – May (10 monthly payments).
  2. Once the scholarship is offered, the monthly tuition payment is adjusted. For example, a scholarship of $2,000 will reduce each monthly payment by $200. A scholarship of $4,000 for two children in a family will reduce each monthly payment by $400.
