Two St. Frances Academy students have been blessed with scholarships provided by the Sulpicians. One scholarship of $20,000 was given to cover tuition, room, and board for Tyquan Smith, a resident of the Fr. Joubert Boarding Program at St. Frances Academy.
The other scholarship of full tuition, provided to a day student, was given to Michael Cummings. Both young men met Fr. John Kemper, P.S.S. prior to the start of the current school year. They expressed their extreme gratitude for this tremendous opportunity. Each student felt that this gift to attend St. Frances has been a turning point in their lives and will help to provide them with a strong foundation into adulthood and beyond. This is the opening of many doors of opportunity for them that they would not have otherwise received.
The school founded by Mother Mary Lange aims to provide a quality Catholic education to students from all walks of life and all financial backgrounds. St. Frances has a long history of working to help students who are in great need. Students frequently describe their experience at St. Frances as transformational. The school is very appreciative and proud of its 190 year relationship with the Sulpician Fathers!
