Alive in Christ!

The “Alive in Christ!” Scholarship Program is part of Archbishop Robert J. Carlson’s strategic plan for Catholic Education in the Archdiocese of St. Louis. In an effort to promote active recruitment and increased enrollment of children in Catholic elementary schools, the “Alive in Christ!” Scholarship Program seeks to provide financial assistance to those families (both Catholic and Non-Catholic) who wish to offer their children an education at a Catholic elementary school in the archdiocese. Scholarship awards are based upon financial need of the applicant and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Applications of all income-eligible families with students attending eligible schools will be considered, regardless of faith. Students that are new to the school will be considered in grades K-4 and students already attending the school will be accepted at any grade.  (Open to All Faiths)
