We are proud to announce our third annual scholarship program to supply resources to those in our Cathedral Family most in need. Below is a list of expected scholarship opportunities, and under this table we explain the program in more detail. Preference for scholarship dollars is given to in-parish Catholic families who have been in good-standing with the school and parish (strong communication, no over-due balances, active volunteer life).

The Scholarship Moment application will be released as a link here. Upon completion, the application can be emailed to Mr. Ekeler or dropped off in the main office.
