Grant Money Awarded to Select Students Will Cover a Significant Portion of Full Year Tuition Costs

for 2016-2017 Academic Year

August 3, 2016 -- Yardley, PA -- Grey Nun Academy (GNA), the Catholic, independent elementary school in Bucks County, PA, announced that it will offer tuition scholarship grants to Bucks County area students enrolling for the 2016-2017 academic year. Named for the school’s foundress St. Marguerite d'Youville, the scholarship grants will be awarded to new students in all grades levels at the Academy who meet the criteria; monies awarded will cover a significant portion of the tuition costs to attend the Academy for the entire school year.

“We are proud and honored to offer the scholarship grants to area children who desire a small student-to-teacher ratio within a technologically advanced 21st Century learning environment,” said Head of School Deborah Kost. “We pride ourselves on providing a superior education that celebrates the whole child – mind, heart, body, and spirit. We appreciate each child’s strengths, needs, and interests – all that make a child unique – and we are so pleased that St. Marguerite d'Youville Scholarship Grants will make Grey Nun Academy available to students eager to learn and explore in a safe, supportive environment.”

Scholarship grants are merit-based for high-achieving students, though additional need-based financial funds are also available. The scholarship grant program continues the legacy of St. Marguerite d'Youville by making a quality Catholic education available to more families. The scholarship grants are made possible by generous benefactors who wish to celebrate her legacy as an ambassador of good will and to honor her memory to serve those in need with a zeal for social justice and quality education.

“The Academy honors our students for all they are today and all they hope to become tomorrow,” added Kost. “We are proud of how our students grow as life-long learners and empathetic members of their community. When our students step on the theater stage, compete on an athletic field, or present at a symposium event, we help them to see themselves as part of something bigger, something special. Our community embraces our heritage of faith, perseverance, and character, seeking ways to live the philosophy established by our foundress, St. Marguerite d’Youville.”
