Tuition Assistance / Endowment

Without a doubt, Saint Francis High School is a special place. It offers students a well-rounded education in a safe and supportive community. Wouldn’t it be great if every deserving student had an opportunity to attend a school like this?

While the tuition at Saint Francis remains among the lowest in the region at $20,000, tuition assistance requests continue to rise exponentially. This year, the school distributed $3.5 million in tuition assistance to students with demonstrated financial need -- up from $3.2 million last year.

The school is committed to ensuring that as many qualified students as possible will have the opportunity to attend Saint Francis, regardless of their family’s financial situation.

Annual Tuition Assistance Fund

Your contribution to the annual tuition assistance fund can change the trajectory of a student’s life. This year alone, we will distribute $3.45 million in need-based financial aid to 302 students. For these qualified students, a Saint Francis education would not be possible without the financial support they receive, which is made possible through philanthropic gifts from our community.

The Saint Francis High School Tuition Assistance Endowment

The endowment is the school’s primary resource to reach this goal. The endowment is a permanent source of funding that generates tuition assistance. Every dollar contributed to the endowment is professionally managed, with the annual interest generated directly funding tuition assistance. Giving to the endowment means that your gift will support the school and its students in perpetuity – not just this year, but every year into the future.

We invite you to make a contribution to the endowment in the following ways:

Make a gift to an endowed tribute fund established in the names of former faculty and staff members—legends at Saint Francis—who have made an impact on the lives of countless students.

Make a gift to an established fund of your choice.

Establish your own or your family’s legacy or honor someone dear to you by creating an endowed tribute fund, which will provide a perpetual source of tuition assistance for Saint Francis. Please contact Mike Speckman for more information.
