The SMS Annual Fund

  • St. Mary's Guardian Angel Fund

    We are thrilled to offer our Guardian Angel Program.  Often, unforeseen hardships, loss of employment, or illness hinders a family's ability to meet their tuition commitment.  The Guardian Angel Program allows us to help these families and provide a Catholic School education to those who may otherwise not be able to afford it.

    Why Should I Support the Annual Fund?

    • Tuition only covers a portion of the cost of running our school.  This leaves a considerable gap per student.  Like many Catholic schools, we strive to keep tuition affordable so that as many children as possible may experience the opportunity and reward of a Catholic education. 

    Your Annual Fund support is critical in helping St. Mary's School operate.
