San Miguel Scholarship

Scroll down to go straight to the giving form

In early 2000, all Christian Brother schools across the country were asked to start a San Miguel Scholarship Program, providing full-tuition scholarships for students whose family income put them at or below the federal poverty line. In doing so, Christian Brother schools would further embody the mission of their founder, St. John Baptist de la Salle, who was committed to making education accessible for all, especially the poor. Thanks to donors' support, La Salle College Preparatory fully embraced this charge and enrolled the first freshman cohort of San Miguel Scholars in the fall of 2000. Fast forward twenty-four years, and next spring’s Commencement Exercises will mark the 20th graduating class of San Miguel Scholars from La Salle.

We can only keep the San Miguel Scholarship program growing and thriving with your support. Your donation to the San Miguel Scholarship Fund will ensure that money is available now and in the future for students most in need and will ensure the program’s viability.

Gifts to the Pat Bonacci, AFSC Endowed Scholarship Fund, the Annie Johnston Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund, and the Dr. Richard Gray Memorial Endowed Scholarship Fund all support San Miguel Scholars. So whether you direct your gift to a named San Miguel Scholarship or the fund, in general, you are making an impact.


La Salle College Preparatory was founded in 1956. Today, we are the only truly diverse and co-educational Catholic high school in Pasadena.
