Are you interested in St. Mary’s Academy but feel the tuition is a barrier? We understand and we are dedicated to assisting students who qualify but cannot afford an Academy education. Several Bursary Funds exist which provide tuition assistance to qualified families. The confidential bursary application process begins after the school has accepted a student. Another form of assistance we provide comes from our Deo Gratias Fund (Thanks be to God). This Fund assists with day-to-day curricular, extra-curricular and co-curricular expenses so that all students have an equitable experience at SMA.
