Support AHA Scholarship Program

Support a Scholarship, Change a Life!

Support a Scholarship, Change a Life!

Thanks to the support of our generous donors, AHA is now able to provide over $2 million in scholarship and tuition aid for its students.  These donors are helping AHA fulfill its mission of sharing our excellent Catholic college preparatory program with as many students as possible.

Despite the growth in our financial aid program, Holy Angels is meeting only 50% of the demonstrated need of our families. In 2020 it will likely be even more challenging to meet the financial aid needs of AHA families.   However, with the right resources, AHA can serve even more students.  Partnering together, we can make a critical difference in the lives of students how need our support.

If you would like to learn more about how you can support our students by donating to an existing scholarship fund or establishing your own, please feel free to contact Jesse Foley (612-798-2621, or Brian McCartan (612-798-2618,
