Because We Care

Educational Offerings

Children at this Home attend elementary through secondary education at high quality private school, or in some cases, public education as individual needs require. Those who desire to do so and qualify may remain on campus following high school graduation to attain higher or post-secondary education. Such educational pursuits are aided by scholarship programs both on and off campus. Presently the Home maintains the Fraser Scholarship Fund; the Arville Hinsley Scholarship Fund; and the Rev. J.W. Kesner, Sr. Memorial Scholarship Fund that help students continue their educational goals.
