We seek to ensure that all children can access the life-changing benefits of a Catholic school.

The Aim Higher Foundation Mission

The Aim Higher Foundation helps more children access the proven benefits of a Catholic education by making tuition more affordable at K-8 Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. We provide $1,000 scholarships to children from families with demonstrated financial need.

Aim Higher Scholarships, once awarded, follow their recipients from Kindergarten through 8th Grade. That is, once a child receives a scholarship, they will continue to receive an additional scholarship each year until they begin high school.


We believe Catholic schools provide an education that is second to none. Catholic schools offer an academically-focused valued-based, and spiritually enriching education. They empower children with a higher purpose as they prepare for high school and a higher calling as they grow into leaders of their families, our Church, and our community.

Across the greater Twin Cities metro area, families seeking a transformational educational experience for their children turn to Catholic schools. Since 2012, we have awarded more than 16,000 scholarships—worth more than $15 million
