Dear BSS Community,

Today, marks the Lenten Season. At Mass, Fr. Paul taught us that the 40 days of Lent is actually 46 because all Sundays and not only Easter Sunday we celebrate Christ's Resurrection. As the Lenten journey begins let us be reminded of the words of Pope Francis-Lent is a special time to reorient ourselves toward Christ.

The countdown begins for our annual auction! 9 days before our Stand Up for The Knights! Hope you can join us on Saturday, March 16. Take a look at our website for the awesome auction items.

Tuition Assistance
Tuition Assistance   is available to families who wish to provide a Blessed Sacrament School education to their children but are unable to afford the full cost of the education. All assistance is offered on the basis of demonstrated need, and all assistance recipients must complete a Grant & Aid Application through FACTS Management Services to be eligible for tuition assistance. 

We strongly encourage Pre Kindergarten families to apply for the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship in addition to their FACTS application. 

The transition from Pre Kindergarten to Kindergarten is the one time an existing school family may apply and be considered for the North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship.   

Blessed Sacrament Tuition Assistance Application is open and accepting applications for new and returning students.

North Carolina Opportunity Scholarship Application opens by early February, 2019.
If you need help or have questions about Kindergarten enrollment or tuition assistance, please contact David Lynch, Admissions Director at 336.570.0019
