Endowment and Scholarship

At St. Agnes Academy, our commitment to the Dominican mission means providing a strong, Catholic education to as many deserving young women in the Houston area as possible. Through gifts to our endowed scholarships, the Academy is able to offer financial assistance to more than ten percent of our students for their ongoing education and enrichment.

What is an endowed scholarship at the Academy?
An endowed scholarship begins to fund student tuition at St. Agnes for one or more students every year in perpetuity. Gifts made to our endowment program support need-based tuition for qualified students through an agreement between donors and the Academy. An endowed scholarship is named and begins to provide funds at $25,000. An endowed scholarship may annually fund a full year's tuition when it reaches $500,000.
