Tuition Notes
Stella Maris Academy is the unified school of St. James, Holy Rosary, St. John's the Evangelist and St. Michael's - Lakeside. The amount of money available for community scholarship is determined annually by the school's finance committee and school board. Stella Maris Academy recognizes the commitment and sacrifice that families make to finance their child's education. In our mission to make Catholic education obtainable, there is a need-based community scholarship program available. This is made possible through the generous support of our local parishes, the academy’s endowment funds, Adopt-A-Student Program, and the generosity of our alumni and donors
