Your gift to Adopt-a-Student at St. Patrick Academy makes a tangible difference for deserving students in Rhode Island who seek a Catholic college-preparatory education. Your support provides tuition assistance, ensuring no student is turned away due to an inability to pay. Your donation changes lives.
The average cost to educate each St. Patrick Academy student is $11,500 per year. St. Patrick Academy relies on your generosity to provide financial assistance to 100% of our students. Tuition covers less than 10% of the school’s costs.
No family is asked to pay more than they can afford. This means that roughly one-quarter of our families pay no tuition at all and the rest of our families pay an average of only about $1,000 per year. Your support ensures that St. Patrick Academy can maintain its commitment to admit students who aspire to spiritual, personal, and academic excellence, regardless of need.
