We believe that an education is the greatest gift we can give children to break the cycle of poverty. To do this, we strive to build self-esteem, to provide positive role models, to build their educational foundation, and to point the way to a future of hope and achievement. To ensure that we may offer this opportunity to as many South Los Angeles children, we need your help.
St. Michael’s School exists in an area that is beset with inner-city problems, including: violent crime, drugs, gangs, and unemployment. Founded in 1903, this fully-accredited school educates approximately 300 students. We strive to educate all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay. While full tuition is $3,000 annually, the actual cost to educate a student is over $4,500. Most of our families (about 95%) cannot afford the full price of tuition and receive discounted tuition.
Donations from foundations and individuals helps bridge SOME of the gap between tuition and the actual cost of educating each child. However, with 95% of families needing tuition assistance, we need your help to continue providing generous tuition assistance to families who struggle to afford a quality Catholic education. Help us offer an outstanding Catholic education to inner-city children by giving a gift today.
