As we navigate fundraising during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are faced with many challenges. Our enrollment has declined, our tuition assistance need has increased, and we incurred many unexpected health protocol expenses to re-open our school. We also made a very tough decision to cancel our October Gala. That event alone brought in $80,000 last year. Please consider a donation today. Big or small – every little bit helps!
We Need Your Support!
The value of a Morning Star School education is immeasurable. As a private 501(c)3 non-profit institution, we rely on parents, grandparents, alumni, foundations, corporations and our supportive community for funding the exceptional educational services we provide. Our students are referred to us from many schools including all schools within the Diocese of St. Augustine and many private and public schools from five surrounding counties.
Ways to Give
There are so many ways to positively impact our students. Each gift of treasure, time or talent helps us achieve our goal – to provide a strong foundation of faith, service, and academics for students with learning differences in an atmosphere of Christian love, acceptance and respect; encouraging all students to reach their full potential.
DONATE TO OUR ANNUAL FUND: Our most important giving priority. Your participation is critical and reflects your belief in all that happens at Morning Star School. Our goal is to raise $180,000 by the end of this school year. Your gift towards this fund helps many school-wide initiatives. Especially this year, when the COVID pandemic has restricted many of our larger fundraising events. Click HERE to read more.

“On the first day of school I was reminded yet again what a blessing Morning Star and all the staff has been to our family. As I walked over to help drop off school supplies, one of the students was having a tough time about something. He wasn’t having a meltdown or anything but one of the teachers was in tune enough, as she led her students towards their classroom, to notice and immediately alert someone in his grade, so that it could be brought to his teachers attention. It was quickly, very discreetly and very kindly handled away from the other students. As a mom it made me feel proud of all involved. Thank you for your school. I love you all”. ❤️
“All the amazing teachers and support staff. Their hearts are so full of love and understanding. We are grateful every day for this beautiful school!”
