Over the past four years, St. Croix Catholic has awarded $200,000-$250,000 each year to families. The actual need is even greater than what we can provide. We are blessed that our school enrollment is growing. The need for assistance will continue to grow as well.

The purpose of the Light Their Way Gala is to raise funds for tuition assistance. The goal this year is to raise money to be used for tuition assistance scholarships for the 2023-2024 school year. Please help us to spread the word about the light that is shining here at SCCS and the need for additional tuition assistance to enable us to “Light the Way” for even more students.


If you are interested in making a donation, you may do so by clicking the donate button above, or by mailing a check with "Light Their Way" on the memo line. Please make checks payable to St. Croix Catholic School and deliver to St. Croix Catholic School, Attention: Margaret Schwartz, Marketing and Development Director, 621 Third Street South, Stillwater, MN 55082.

Benefactors who support St. Croix Catholic School's Light Their Way scholarship program at a level of $2,000 or more will be recognized in our permanent Guardian Angel display. Please prayerfully consider if God is calling you to be one of our students' 2023 Guardian Angels. Gifts made to St. Croix Catholic School's Tuition Assistance Fund may be made in conjunction with Light Their Way gala or at any time throughout the year. Your support will make it possible for St. Croix Catholic School to open its doors to many who otherwise may not be able to meet tuition obligations.

Questions? Please call Margaret Schwartz, Marketing and Development Director at (651) 439-5581 ext. 310.
