Crisis Reserve Fund Scholarships


A message for families experiencing some financial crisis.

The “Aim Higher” Foundation has been supporting families through scholarships to attend Catholic Schools for several years. In this extraordinary time, the Foundation has opened up opportunities for families that are experiencing some financial crisis. If this is you, we invite you to take advantage of this opportunity for support. Please see the accompanying message from Ricky Austin at the Aim Higher Foundation.

Hello St. Joseph Catholic School families. We hope you are healthy and well. Please know of our thoughts and prayers on behalf of the children in your families and our broader community.

We are writing today to reinforce that we are working hard—doing what we always do—providing scholarships to help children access Catholic education. Besides our normal scholarship cycles, we are also continuing to offer our Reserve Fund Scholarships, $1,000 of tuition-assistance for children from families experiencing sudden and financial hardship.

As the number of Reserve Fund Applications has understandably increased these last few weeks, we have built out a new, streamlined way to apply. Moving forward, you should apply using the form found at:

More information can be found at that link and, as always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are here at your service at any hour, day or night.
