Financial concerns should never deter a family from choosing St. John’s! We work with families to make affording a Catholic education possible for all families. St. John’s works with the Aim Higher Foundation, the Catholic Community Fund, Families First, and the Richard M. Schultz Family Foundation in providing scholarships for qualifying families. St. John’s is also able to offer assistance through our own dedicated fund.


  • AIM Higher – Operated 501(c)3 nonprofit governed by a Board of Directors comprised of corporate, civic, and education leaders.  $1,000, student-based scholarship awarded to K-8 students from families with demonstrated financial need.  Once a student is awarded the scholarship, they will continue to receive an additional $1,000 scholarship each year up to and through 8th-grade. The scholarship will also follow the student from year to year if he or she transfers to another Catholic school in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
  • A second scholarship is available from the Catholic Community Foundation. Aim Higher works with CCF to award these Scholarships. A student can only receive the Aim Higher or CCF Scholarship.
