– following the example of Jesus Christ in His service to those in need – assists faith based and private elementary schools in providing quality, affordable and accessible educational opportunities for any economically disadvantaged family within the St. Louis Region by generating financial assistance in the form of scholarships from local and national funding sources.

Today, many children have limited educational choices. Living in a particular zipcode can be a distinct disadvantage. Many families experience severe economic challenges, creating an uncertain future for them and for their children. Lacking a good education in a safe and academically challenging environment, families face yet another generation living in poverty.

Tomorrow will be different. Children who receive quality education and who have families committed to their success have vastly improved opportunities for success in school and in life.

Parents deserve a choice.

Children deserve a chance.
