C2 Opportunity Scholarships

The Catholic Schools Office remains grateful for Catholic Charities continued support, which enables us through our schools to provide an excellent educational experience in the Catholic tradition.  We aim to help all students develop their God-given talents, knowing that a strong foundation of our Catholic beliefs, practices and traditions are critical to following Christ in today’s world.

To further these aims, C2 Opportunity Scholarships has been created in partnership with Catholic Charities to help bring Catholic educational opportunities for low-income families in our diocese. C2 Opportunity Scholarships is a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO) funded by the donations of corporate and individual Alabama income tax liability in compliance with the Alabama Accountability Act. Awards are distributed on a first come, first served basis to eligible families with priority given to students zoned to attend an underperforming public school as defined by the state.

We believe that children should have every opportunity to succeed.  Our fully accredited Catholic Schools offer an excellent education rooted in Gospel values and are ready to meet the needs of these students, preparing them for a lifelong journey of faith and learning that they might not find elsewhere.

If you would like to learn more about C2 Opportunity Scholarships or support this mission by donating your or your organization’s tax liability, please visit the C2 Scholarships Site http://csquaredscholarships.com or use the red button below.
