Support Mount St. Mary Academy

The Development Department of Mount St. Mary Academy is dedicated to raising the funds necessary for the provision and support of the programs available to its students. Funding through these efforts will continue Mount St. Mary Academy’s ability to provide state-of-the-art learning blended with time-honored traditions within a developmentally safe and supportive environment. This mission is only made possible through the kindness and generosity of our good friends and benefactors who support us in our work through their prayers and donations.

    The Mount St. Mary Academy Alumnae Scholarship Fund is a means of financial assistance awarded each year to the relative of an alumna. The scholarship is governed by the MSM Alumnae Board, and receives contributions year round from our alumnae.
  • Emergency Food Fund

    Our Emergency Food Fund is a collection of funds dedicated to providing support for struggling families by covering the cost of their student's lunch fees during the school year.

    This fund provides tuition assistance to our students whose families experience unexpected difficulties such as the death of a parent, job loss, etc.
