St. Scholastica is dedicated to providing our students with the intellectual and moral preparation for responsible living and meaningful work. Many organizations and businesses provide opportunities for such work and are tightly aligned with our own mission. In an effort to support both the organization and its employees, we've developed the Meaningful Work Award.
Some employers help pay the cost of continuing education for their employees. Please check with your Human Resources department to see if they offer this benefit.
