Thanks to support from donors like you, urban adolescent girls across the St. Louis region are provided with a life-altering education, as well as spiritual, social, moral, emotional, and physical support…10 hours a day, 10 months a year, and for the rest of their lives.

It costs more than $15,000 to educate one Marian student each school year. Family contributions toward tuition are based on income, with the average family paying just $400 per year. The other 96 percent of the costs come from community contributions (individuals, foundations, and corporations) and ensures that the education we provide our students is cutting-edge, holistic, and ongoing. Your gift will help us bridge the gap between the cost of providing quality education to girls of high potential but limited resources and the annual tuition each family pays.
