The Franciscan High School Scholarship Program is a partnership between students and benefactors, each doing their part to ensure student success.

Students will...

  • Participate diligently in the Corporate Work Study Program to fund the majority of their education.
  • Focus on academic work and discern their path to college and career.
  • Send a letter each year to the benefactor with information about classes, work, interests, hopes, and dreams.
  • Invite the benefactor to Franciscan High School’s annual Scholarship Partner event.
  • Pray for the benefactor’s family in his or her own tradition.
  • Invite the benefactor to a very important and joyful milestone: graduation.

Benefactors will...

  • Pledge $20,000 payable over four years to partner with one Franciscan High School student from freshman year through graduation.
  • Or provide $5,000 for a one-year student scholarship.

What a joy it has been to get to know the students and staff at Franciscan High School. The
teachers and staff treat each student like their own - with care and concern for their overall wellbeing
as they prepare them to launch into the world. The students… well, you just have to stop
by for yourself - you will feel welcomed and respected and absolutely LOVE getting to know them!
