Magnificat is dedicated to serve a student body that is economically and socially diverse. We recognize the financial commitment necessary for a Magnificat education, and have provided over $2 million in tuition assistance to our students this year. The primary source of tuition assistance and scholarships comes from the Magnificat Endowment Fund. Income from the fund, along with gifts from alumnae, private donors and several foundations, allows us to make a Magnificat education affordable for everyone. We are committed to helping interested and dedicated students so that they may experience what Magnificat can be for them—an investment that lasts a lifetime.
