Edie's Angels Scholarship Program
JACS offers a limited scholarship program to partially assist with fees and tuition. This program was created after the 2011 tornado as a result of generous donors who wanted to relieve any burdens on families who were affected by the storm. The fund is named for one of our donors, a JACS mom, whose husband and two children perished as a result of the storm. The program is currently funded through an annual grant and private donations from individuals.
Donations for this program can be accepted online: DONATE HERE or by sending donations to:

Joplin Area Catholic Schools

930 South Pearl Ave.
Joplin, MO 64801

To apply for this scholarship, please call 417-624-5003 and download an application to fill out.

Payment information

In 2018, Joplin Area Catholic Schools partnered with Smart Tuition as a service to our parents to manage payments, billing and collections. This allows for a transparent confidential system where individual families can see for themselves a complete report on their fees and tuition account. A list of FAQs is available to answer questions you may have about this service. There is no cost to families for this service unless you use a credit card in which case there is a 2.85% convenience fee. For questions please call the JACS Business Office 417-624-5003.
