In 1998 we began a program here at Bishop Luers High School called Adopt-A-Knight. This program was developed to help families that were struggling with tuition. Each school year more than half of our families need tuition assistance. These parents want a Catholic education for their children. They all pay what they are able according to their income. Our diocese feels that no one should be denied attendance at Bishop Luers High School because of the inability to pay.
To qualify for the Adopt-A-Knight program families are required to fill out a financial aid packet, make tuition payments according to the arrangements made at registration, and show additional FACTS Grant & Aid Application. When money is donated to the program is it dispersed to the families in need.
Tuition and fees for a registered active Catholic student in the 2014-2015 school year is $6,210. If the student is a senior, there is also a graduation fee of $150. Through the ADOPT-A-KNIGHT program we have been able to help many families. Businesses and individuals have been very generous with their support. All gifts are confidential and tax-deductible. Your donation is not tax deductible according to the tax laws if you designate a specific student.
Donations may be sent to Bishop Luers High School in care of
