The Blessed Sacrament School Tuition Assistance Fund
This Designated Fund was established in May of 2019 by the Knights of Columbus Father Raho Council #4194 in Morton, IL. The purpose of the Fund is to provide support for Blessed Sacrament School students in grades K-8 with tuition assistance. Grants will be sent to Blessed Sacrament school and recipients of tuition assistance shall be determined by Blessed Sacrament School’s financial needs-based program.
BSS has a strong Catholic Identity by developing students intellectually, socially, culturally, and physically, centering on the teaching of Jesus Christ and the Roman Catholic Church.
In order to provide an atmosphere that allows our students to develop their individual God given talents, Blessed Sacrament offers a number of activities to enrich their interests and abilities.
We are proud that our school ranks in the upper 15% nationally in the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
Blessed Sacrament School serves Preschool through 8th grade students in Morton, Illinois, and the surrounding area. Blessed Sacrament School is committed to providing our students a positive learning environment in which they can develop intellectually, socially, culturally, physically and most importantly spiritually centering on the teaching of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. Blessed Sacrament School provides a full curriculum including a foreign language (Spanish K-8), a 30 - station computer lab, SMART boards, a Glynn STREAM lab, a 10,000 volume library, and resource teachers. We have iPads available in each room - 1:2 K-4th grade and 1:1 5th-8th. Some teachers have implemented Google Classroom, where notes are uploaded online so students can download them from school or at home. We use the Iowa Test of Basic Skills as our assessment in grades 3, 5 and 7 and our scores rank very high nationally. We also use MAP testing. (Measures of Academic Progress)
