External Financial Aid Opportunities
As part of the Beyond Sunday campaign, the Archdiocese of St. Louis is offering a scholarship program to support middle-income families with tuition support for Catholic Elementary and High Schools in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. The program for grades 9-12 will be called the Beyond Sunday Fellows Program. The objective is to align the tuition support with continued Catholic community-building among high school students which extends throughout their lives. Scholarship recipients will be named Beyond Sunday Fellows. The goal is to have Beyond Sunday Fellows in every Catholic high school. More information can be found by clicking here. Scholarship applications will be available after February 1, 2016.
Cor Jesu accepts outside scholarships, including those from Beyond Sunday, parish organizations, the Darak Sabada Scholarship and more.
