Pay It Forward

Bobcats give back (it’s just what they do!). Gifts to the new Montibus Scholarship Trust help students in the form of institutional scholarships. As a school of opportunity, we want our educational experiences to be accessible to everyone. Scholarships are the best way to ensure this remains possible.
