Financial Assistance/Tuition Support for 2019-20

The Aim Higher Foundation provides two types of scholarships for students to attend a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis: the Aim Higher Scholarship and the Catholic Services Appeal Foundation Scholarship. These $1,000 student-based scholarships are awarded to K-8 students from families with financial need. See the Aim Higher flyer in today’s e-Folder for more details. In addition to these scholarships, St. Michael Catholic School/Church will continue to offer tuition assistance to families with a financial need.
