Honoring Family Scholarship in Second Year

In recognition of the sacrifices that families make to send their children to Catholic schools, the diocese established the Honoring Family Scholarship program. This program offers each family with a student enrolled in a diocesan high school and at least one other student enrolled in diocesan school a scholarship for the oldest child.
“Our diocese is committed to providing a Catholic education to as many students as possible,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Daniel Peters. “Studies show that adult Catholics who have benefitted from Catholic schools are more likely to remain close to the faith throughout their lives," he said. "Our schools produce adults with the tools and knowledge to sustain families, to make moral decisions, and to be productive members of society."
Part of the Bright Futures Fund, Honoring Family Scholarship offers a partial tuition grant to the oldest child in the family for each year he or she attends a diocesan high school. Scholarship eligibility is not based on need. Eligible families should download an application and return it by April 16 to one of the four diocesan high schools.
