Guardian Angel Program (GAP)
The Archdiocese of Washington (ADW) provides financial assistance to students based on a percentage of a family’s total need as calculated by the Tuition Aid Data Service. . We have aligned our financial processes and gift program, under Guardian Angel Program (GAP). Our annual goal is to raise funds needed for direct tuition assistance to bridge the gap between the actual cost of educating a student and the tuition assistance a student may receive through the ADW. With the help of many Guardian Angel participants, we strive to provide direct tuition assistance for every student demonstrating need. Guardian Angel Donation Program
We ask you to become a Guardian Angel today by committing your financial support to a Saint Michael’s student!
