Guardian Angel Fund


Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers,

you did it to me.’ Matthew 25:40


In 1989, Saint Thomas Aquinas President, Blake Mulvany, instituted the Guardian Angel Fund. Ever since the school has made it our mission to do whatever it takes to help families through difficult times. As a Catholic high school, we strive to offer assistance to our families, especially in times of need and loss. Young people inherently understand when their family is in crisis. If we can ensure our students that their education will not be interrupted (including their relationship with their peers, the sense of community they feel here at school, and their affirmation of faith in God), we have accomplished what we should as a Catholic community.
The Guardian Angel Fund exists solely to assist families with unforeseen hardships such as death or terminal illness, loss of employment, or family status changes that hinder their ability to meet their tuition commitment to Saint Thomas Aquinas High School. Additionally, through the generosity of the Saints community, including those who have benefited previously, the Guardian Angel Fund allows students to continue their Catholic educational experience without interruption throughout the remainder of the academic year.  

In giving to the Saints Guardian Angel Fund, you provide a seamless Catholic education to families with compassion and dignity for the student. Your gifts are appreciated by the school and especially by those who benefit from your generosity.

If your family is experiencing hardship such as a job loss, illness, or death in the family, and you are considering disrupting your student’s academic year, please set up an appointment with President Brian Schenck at 913-319-2420 or [email protected]

Thank you for your support. I feel so grateful, humbled and in awe of our miracle that I have been praying for. I so firmly believe in my faith and with there being so much “bad” in our world today, I am so touched by this “goodness” from the little big house on the hill.

Thank you for your assistance. Without it, our child would not be able to finish her time at Aquinas.

Once again, you have answered our prayers. Our son is so proud to be a Saint.

God bless you endlessly for granting us scholarship assistance. I would rather give up groceries than our child’s Catholic education.
