Opening Doors for Students at SLUH
All St. Louis University High School alumni received the benefit of George and Anna Backer's foresight and generosity—through the Backer Endowment—of affordable education in the Jesuit tradition. Perhaps the most lasting tribute anybody can give to the school is to pass along the legacy of a SLUH education to others.
The scholarship endowment augments SLUH's ability to provide an excellent education to all qualified young men, regardless of their ability to pay tuition. Support for the scholarship fund benefits students today and tomorrow.
While tuition for the 2012-13 school year is $14,365, the actual cost to educate one young man is $16,089. The "gap" of $1,724 per student is made up through fundraising during the year from alumni, parents and friends, as well as earnings from the endowment.
SLUH’s Named Scholarship Program—that is, scholarships totaling $30,000 or more—provides an opportunity to assist future generations of students. At the same time, it enables donors to recognize significant individuals, such as alumni, faculty or family, who have emulated the ideal of "men for others" throughout their lives.
Investments made at the following levels further enable SLUH to remain affordable and foster the socio-economic diversity of its students.

The following student quotes are just a sample of hundreds that reflect the importance and meaning of financial assistance:
"Thank you…for giving me the great opportunity to attend SLUH. The school…is another family for me." Class of '08
"I am the oldest in a family of eight children. Coupled with the rigors of school and a job, it helps tremendously to not have to worry about tuition…" Class of '07
