The Adopt-A-Student program funds students in Seeds of Hope schools. Students selected to participate in the program are hand-picked by their principals. The program is Seeds of Hope’s most popular tuition assistance program, and it is designed specifically for donors and students to interact. The relationships formed not only make the Adopt-A-Student program unique, but help explain why most of our Adopt-A-Student donors recommit to sponsoring a student every year.
The idea was originated by Archbishop Aquila, while he was serving as the Secretary of Education for the Archdiocese of Denver, during the planning stages for Seeds of Hope in the mid-1990s.
- There are two levels of support:
- Gold - $3,000 – covers a significant portion of a student’s tuition costs
- Silver - $2,000
- The Adopt-A Student program funds an average of 100 students each year; a vast majority of those students receive a Gold level award.
- This program will fund approximately 19% of the tuition assistance support given to schools through Seeds of Hope during the 2016-2017 school year.
