Work Study Program
The Resurrection College Prep Work-Study Program offers students the ability earn additional tuition assistance by cleaning classrooms after school.  Students are awarded $8.00 per day that they clean.  Generally, the students work approximately 45 minutes per day. Their tuition accounts are credited with the aid at the end of the first and second semesters.  Preference will be given to freshman and sophomore students since they usually cannot find jobs in the workplace. 

Applications for the 2018-19 school year are available and due back by July 31, 2018.
