Partnership 4 Success— Partnerships 4 Success assists Catholic families in finding part-time jobs as a way to pay or offset tuition costs. This program was launched in 2006 by a group of local Catholic educators, business people and religious representatives. It is for all Catholic grade schools and high schools. One of the most important decisions a parent can make is where they send their children to school. Not only is a solid academic program the key to financial independence, but outside of family life, a child’s school experience typically has the most impact on their faith and morals. If you have any questions about the Partnership 4 Success program, please contact George Molinsky at (937) 433-1188, ext. 213.

Sr. John Maureen, SC School Tuition Fund - This fund was established in 1971 to honor the memory of Sister John Maureen McGraw, a Sister of Charity and a beloved principal of our school.

Since its inception, more than 500 families have benefited from this fund. 

This scholarship is primarily funded by our parish tithing program and private donations and is, therefore, available only to the children of parishioners.
