The total cost to educate each child at Maternity of Mary – St. Andrew School during the 2024-2025 school year is approximately $8,000. This cost is met primarily by tuition, parish subsidy, and fundraising.

Tuition covers 60% of that cost. The remaining cost is covered by:

  • Maternity of Mary parishioners contributing $250,000 per year, which provides over $1,900 per student per year.
  • Fundraising efforts generate $600 per student per year. (requires participation by every family)
  • Other income and donations contribute the remaining cost per student

MMSA uses TADS, our Tuition/Financial Aid management system to assess your family’s financial need. Log into your TADS account to complete your family’s application.

AIM HIGHER FOUNDATION $1,000 Scholarships to Help Pay for Tuition

The Aim Higher Foundation provides additional scholarships to children whose families are looking for tuition assistance to send their child to a Catholic school in the great Twin Cities metro area. Children attending grades K through 8th grade are eligible to receive $1,000 each. There is no limit to the number of children who receive a scholarship per family.

Once awarded, the Aim Higher Scholarship follows students through 8th grade and to other Catholic schools. In other words, if your child receives a scholarship in kindergarten, he or she will continue to receive $1,000 each year through 8th grade—a possible total of $9,000 in nine years.

The Aim Higher Scholarship Applications for the 2024-25 school year are now open.

  • Applications will be accepted between November 1, 2023 through February 23, 2024.
