“The mission of St. Mary of the Angels School is to work collaboratively with parents, the primary educators of their children, to provide for the spiritual, intellectual, moral and physical development of our students.” In keeping with the spirit of our mission, the administration of St. Mary of the Angels School works with our families to meet the needs of every student. We strive to maintain affordable tuition rates for all families so that no child is refused a quality Catholic education due to financial need. Our annual K-8 per-student cost to educate exceeds what we require in tuition, meaning every student attending St. Mary of the Angels school receives some assistance from our generous benefactors. For families seeking further financial assistance, click here to learn more. Applications for tuition assistance are only accepted after a family has registered for and been accepted to St. Mary of the Angels School. In adherence to the policies and mandates of the Archdiocese of Chicago, all families must contribute monetarily, to some degree, to their child(ren)’s Catholic education. Full tuition assistance is not available in order to accommodate all school families seeking assistance.
Mandatory Volunteer Service Hours:
Each family is asked to volunteer 15 hours of their time to make Saint Mary of the Angels a great school for their children. If unable to complete these service hours, families may opt to pay for the time. Each hour of volunteer service is valued at $15. Families may pay for all or any portion of the volunteer service hours.
We do not currently have a minimum required annual contribution. However, the expectation is that all families will participate in our Boo Run in the fall, and our Angels of Hope event in the spring, as well as other smaller fundraisers that occur during the year. Please note, families who receive financial assistance may be asked to make specific contributions of time/talents toward our fundraising efforts. This will be communicated during the scholarship awarding process.
