Financial Aid


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.


Funded through contributions to the Beyond Sunday campaign, the Beyond Sunday Education Fund Scholarship Program provides tuition assistance to middle-income families seeking a Catholic education for their children. Awards are available to students attending St. Margaret Mary Alacoque School. Beyond Sunday is open to students of all faiths, with preference given to Catholic students. Elementary school awards renew through the eighth grade. Annual income requalification is required for all awards.
