Holy Angels Academy is a ministry of Saint Anne and Saint Jude Roman Catholic Church. Our mission is to provide an excellent Catholic and academic education for children of all faiths by empowering learners in a safe, nurturing, disciplined and inclusive environment according to the Gospel teachings of Jesus Christ. We serve the Sumter and surrounding communities by opening the doors to an obtainable, affordable, and fulfilling Christian educational experience for all families. Together with families, we help 4K-6th grade children build a firm foundation in faith, reading, writing, math, public speaking, social and life skills.
Over the last several years, our Catholic school has faced the challenges of difficult economic conditions, decreasing enrollment and, most recently, a world-wide pandemic. Our priests, faculty, staff, advisory council members and parents have been working diligently to overcome these challenges and ensure that we are able to continue with the long tradition of Catholic education in the Sumter community.
The gospel teaches us that when we do for the least of our brothers and sisters, we are doing for Christ himself. At Holy Angels Academy, we want to live this value by making it possible for families to enroll their children at our school even if their financial situation does not permit them to pay the full tuition and fees. However, this cannot happen without a way to cover those monies that the families cannot afford to pay.
After much prayer, discussion and research, the Holy Angels Academy Adopt-A-Student Program was created to fulfill our desire to help families in financial need send their children to our school to get the faith and academic formation they seek.
Holy Angels Academy Adopt-A-Student Program is a way for parishioners and community members to share the gift of Catholic education with students in financial need.
There are many families in our parish who would love to give their children a faith-filled education at Holy Angels Academy, but financial obstacles prevent them from doing so. Fr. Gio is seeking parishioners who would be willing to help financially sponsor these students so they can experience a Catholic Education.
Sure! Say that there is a single parent with two children. By sacrificing, that parent could pay half of their tuition. A $3850 “adopt-a-student” sponsorship would cover the other half of the tuition, allowing both children to attend Holy Angels Academy. We could also combine smaller sponsorships from several parishioners to achieve the same goal.
