Financial Aid

We are registered as a Direct Payment school with the North Carolina State Education Assistance Authority. Thus, Stella Maris families may use NCSEAA Opportunity Scholarships, which are now effectively universal school choice funds. The Opportunity Scholarships have now been expanded as follows:

  • Removal of the income cap for families to receive the scholarship; now all North Carolina students in kindergarten through 12th grade will be eligible for the Scholarship regardless of income.
  • Prior public school enrollment is no longer a requirement for eligibility for the scholarship.
  • A student’s scholarship amount will be based on household income.
  • Scholarship amounts will range from approximately $3,000 to approximately $7,000.
  • Additionally significant tuition discounts will be available for faculty, staff, and limited volunteer positions. Please contact us if interested in this financial aid.
