The Claire Thompson Endowed Scholarship

The Claire Thompson Endowed Scholarship has been established in the honor of its namesake, Claire Thompson, a community leader in Athens. This need-based scholarship is awarded each year to an achieving student who would not be able to attend Donovan without assistance. This need based scholarship is applied toward a student’s tuition and is renewable each year providing the student maintains a high academic average and exemplifies good citizenship. It is our expectation that each recipient contribute significantly to the life of the school.

The Monsignor Walter J. Donovan Merit Scholarship

The Monsignor Walter J. Donovan Merit Scholarship has been established in the honor of our namesake. This prestigious merit-based scholarship is awarded each year to the top student of the incoming freshman class. Merit scholarships are partial awards that cover 50% of the student’s tuition and are renewable each year providing the student maintains a high academic average and exemplifies good citizenship. It is our expectation that each recipient contribute significantly to the life of the school.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Endowment Fund

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton accomplished extraordinary things during her life. However, she didn’t accomplish any of them in a single day. Rather, it was the accumulation of a lifetime of ordinary days lived well which shaped her impact on the world. Her spirit of faith, service and leadership, in the ordinary moments made a large impact.

The St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Endowment Fund is a scholarship fund that helps students in need to attend Monsignor Donovan Catholic High School.

Tuition Assistance at Donovan

Think you can’t afford a high-quality college preparatory private high school education for your student? Think again!

Monsignor Donovan Catholic High School makes educational excellence affordable. First, we strive to keep our tuition as low as possible while maintaining rigorous standards in both the quality of our faculty and our buildings and campus. Our tuition assistance program further enables us to lower the financial burden on middle and low income families. With the addition of the Georgia GOAL Scholarship Program, we are now able to provide greater support on a sliding scale to families that qualify.

All families are allowed to request aid during the application process and are evaluated on a case-by-case basis through documents submitted to FACTS, our independent financial aid service. Depending on the student’s previous enrollment, aid may come from either Georgia GOAL Scholarships or from our Monsignor Donovan tuition assistance budget. Georgia GOAL Scholarships, awarded on the basis of need, are restricted by law to students transferring from public school or homeschool. All students are eligible on the basis of need for aid from our general tuition assistance budget.
