Tuition Assistance Fund
“Catholic Schools are good for children, families, communities, the nation, and the Church. And today more than ever, they need our support.”
Alliance for Catholic Education, University of Notre Dame
Mater Dei Catholic School is a community of faith. In partnership with parents, Mater Dei instills a strong faith formation and pride in our Catholic heritage. Guided by a clearly communicated mission, our school embraces a Catholic Identity, rooted in Gospel values and centered on the Eucharist in a safe, nurturing, and loving environment. We are committed to Catholic education and supporting our Mater Dei families so that that Catholic education is always a choice for every family.
The Polar Plunge Tuition Assistance program was started by Miss Diane McCaughan in 2008. Our brave Principal, Staff, Teachers and Parents get sponsorship and plunge into the Atlantic Ocean every February at the Polar Bear Plunge Event held in Sea Isle City, New Jersey. Over the past eight years, the teams have raised more than $200,000 to assist Mater Dei Families who either qualify for BLOCS Financial Aid or need financial assistance due to loss of job, changes in health, family changes, etc. Additionally, these families actively participate in volunteering at Mater Dei and want to continue giving the gift of Catholic education to their children.
You may not be a Polar Bear plunger, a cheerleader, or a sponsor. You may, however, support the mission of Mater Dei Catholic School and the Tuition Assistance Fund. Your donation to this fund will help us ensure that our families can continue their commitment to Catholic education.
