Invest in Education

Providing a Catholic education to all who desire it is fundamental to the mission of St. Andrew Parish. The primary purpose of our Catholic school is to assist parents in handing down the meaning of our faith from one generation to the next. Unfortunately, for some families, cost can stand in the way of providing a quality, faith-focused education for their children. In an effort to make a Catholic education accessible to all who want it, the parish established the St. Andrew Parish Elementary School Tuition Assistance Fund. For nearly 20 years, parish families have benefited from this assistance, but we need your continued support.
