There are programs that are integral to a Saint John’s education but come at an additional cost beyond what tuition covers. For example, Global Encounter trips, retreats, Model UN conferences, the Young Writers Conference, and more all require sacrifices from students and families. All Saint John’s students should be able to experience these transformational programs. The Pioneers Care program is available to ensure that every student can experience all that Saint John's offers.
Whether it is a student needing assistance to participate in an immersion trip with the world language program, a sophomore looking for additional resources to afford a textbook or an instrument, or an athlete on the track team who simply can’t afford to purchase a pair of running sneakers, Pioneers Care ensures that all students, no matter their socio-economic background, feel a part of and included in all that Saint John’s has to offer.
Pioneers Care also covers Pioneer Lunch. The annual cost to provide a daily lunch for one student is $1,050. This year, we have 48 families who are in need of support to feed their child while here at Saint John’s.
