Veritas & Cade Memorial Scholarships
Each year, the Principal selects one seventh grade student to compete for these scholarships. The nominated student exemplifies the qualities (respect for others, leadership abilities, and a love for learning) of the Domincan Sisters for which these scholarships are named, Sister Mary Thomas Veritas and Sister Renilde Cade. One student out of the eight Vision of Hope school nominees will win the Veritas Scholarship while the other seven students will receive a Cade Scholarship. Students who win the Veritas scholarship are awarded $1,500 in tuition assistance. Cade Scholarship recipients receive $750 in tuition assistance.
Sister John Martin Fixa Memorial Scholarship
The Principal nominates a sixth grade student who embodies the qualities of Sister Johnnie, which include academic performance, school leadership, positive relationships with others, and the Christian virtues of: kindness, humility, dedication, joy, and compassion. One student is selected from each of the eight Vision of Hope schools and only two will receive scholarships of $1,500 for tuition assistance.
Each year the Dominican Sisters Vision of Hope awards the Robert M. Holstein, Jr. Memorial Scholarship to two eighth grade students who carry on Mr. Holstein’s legacy of being a person for others (concern for social justice, compassion, and service to others). The Holstein Scholars receive a $1,500 tuition scholarship for their eighth grade year and their names are immortalized on a plaque that hangs in the main hallway at St. Michael’s School.
