Therefore, the School offers need-based assistance through the Jeri Schall Memorial Fund. Additional merit grants and discounts are designed to affirm in students the attributes tied to our mission of preparing students for their calling. Assistance is meant to support mission-driven families of limited means in their pursuit of a faith-based, college-preparatory education.
