Our hallmark Residential Program provides safe, nurturing, family-like homes for up to 18 Scholars. Our ‘home-away-from-home’ environment, coupled with an outstanding education, provides the support needed for Scholars to achieve their full potential.


Residential Scholars earn full tuition scholarships to a rigorous middle or high school. Current partner schools include, but are not limited to, Benedictine High School, E Prep Cliffs, St. Edward High School, and Saint Joseph Academy.


Campus Living

Residential Scholars live on our Campus of Hope through the week (typically Sunday evening through Friday) and enjoy homecooked meals and receive transportation to and from school and other activities.
