Many people cite cost as the largest barrier to attending private school. We are often told that families would love to send their children to private school but they simply cannot afford it. With tuition scholarships, we can make that dream a reality! Simply put: Do not let tuition be the deciding factor. If you want WINGS for your child, we will help make it happen.
We feel very strongly that every child deserves WINGS. In order to make that possible, we are proud to offer tuition scholarships. Through the generosity of community members and the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Divine Providence Academy has scholarship programs. Annually, we award thousands of dollars, to help offset the costs of tuition.
The first step in order to receive tuition scholarships is to fill out the SmartAid form here: Smart Aid Application The SmartAid scholarship is also referred to as the Bishops scholarship, and the money is awarded to families in the Diocese of Grand Rapids.
Familes who belong to other parishes are charged the non parishioner rate. Your parish will provide $1,350 in parish support per child K-8. Please fill out the parish support form here: Parish Support Form
Divine Providence uses SMART Tuition to process tuition payments. For returning families, your plan from last year will
