Peggy Hoyt Guardian Angel Tuition Assistance Program
The Guardian Angel program started in 2014 to provide tuition assistance up to 50% of tuition costs to families who want a Catholic education for their children but cannot afford the entire cost of the tuition. Families must apply to qualify for this program. Tuition assistance s awarded to students in May after all donations from the previous year are received.
There is a $40 fee to apply for financial assistance and the process can take up to 2 weeks. Assistance is awarded on a first-come-first serve basis.
The link for applications will be live soon for the 2024-25 school year.
If you would like to donate to this fund, you can send checks payable to "St. Mary School" to the school office or the St. Mary DeKalb Parish Office.

Current St. Mary students going into grades one and four through eight can apply for privately funded scholarships. Each scholarship will fund up to $1,000 and is applied directly towards your student's tuition for the next school year.
Students apply for these scholarships in March/April to be awarded in May prior to the school year starting.
Raise Right is a rebate program available to all families. Parents purchase gift cards and gift certificates to shop at national and area stores. A percentage of the purchase is then applied to the student's tuition account. This can help to defray the cost of tuition for our parents.
