Pre-K through grade 8
Contact: Principal, Andrea Smith – 843-681-6501 x222
Applications are now being accepted for the Monsignor Martin T. Laughlin scholarship sponsored by the Women of St. Francis. All students in grades PreK to 7th grade who will be attending St. Francis Catholic School for the 2023-24 school year may apply for a $1000 scholarship which will be applied toward their tuition. Applications are now available in the school office. Funding for the scholarships was made possible because of the participation of parishioners and friends who attend our Soups for Scholarships Soup night, where 100% of the profits goes to the scholarship fund, as well as cookbook sales, Fashion Show and other fund raising activities of the Women of St. Francis. The Women of St. Francis do not have access to financial records of families applying for scholarships.
