How You Can Help

General Scholarship Assistance

The general tuition assistance fund provides aid to low-income families who wish to enroll their children in Lumen Christi Academies. Scholarship amounts vary according to annual income, household size, and the number of children enrolled at LCA. This program is focused on two of the Academies: St. Elizabeth (Oakland) and St Anthony (Oakland) where more than 70% of current students qualify for reduced or free school lunches. Please contact Paula Gogin, Director of Advancement at pgogin@lcacademies.org if you are interested in supporting the Lumen Christi Academies General Tuition Assistance fund or click here to make your donation today.

Sponsor a Student

The average cost of tuition for a Lumen Christi Academies student is $8,000. This cost can be prohibitive for families with one child let alone two or more. Our philosophy is that a Catholic education should be accessible to all children, regardless of their family's ability to pay. The Sponsor-a-Student program matches each donor with a deserving student and family. Through this partnership, donors can annually support students who would otherwise be unable to attend. Every year, there are dozens of children who cannot continue in our Academies as their families struggle with the escalating cost of living in the Bay Area. As a sponsor, you will enable hardworking students to pursue their education in an academically strong, Christ-centered environment.
