Grant and Aid

At St. Louis School we are committed to partnering with your family to provide you with the financial support necessary to ensure your child benefits from a Catholic education.  We appreciate the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school.   While paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, St. Louis School and the Archdiocese of Baltimore devote significant funds each year to assist families in this important commitment. It is our hope that we can work together to make the dream of a Catholic education a reality.
