Generous Scholarships Available to Qualified Homeschoolers in Your Organization
Ave Maria University is offering a limited number of generous scholarships specifically for Catholic Homeschooled students from Michigan to attend Ave Maria University (AMU) in Florida. They believe AMU is a great fit for students who have been homeschooled for a significant portion of their academic career. If you are Catholic and you have a son or daughter looking for an affordable, yet excellent, way to continue their Catholic education, please review information below for your convenience. 

Ave Maria University (AMU) is a place where Homeschooled students don’t just survive, they THRIVE.

AMU will build on the values that parents have instilled at home… not tear them down!

AMU values Faith, Family, Academics, Sports, Arts and Service:

Faith is at the core of everything they do at AMU. Starting with Mass which is celebrated 3 times a day, frequent confession and perpetual adoration, their campus ministry programs are geared to help their students not just know their faith, but live and love it.

All of their residence halls are separated by gender, and they have the endorsement of The Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College.

Whether it be in the classroom, the residence hall or through the team of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students) missionaries on campus, they are committed to the healthy integration of our Catholic faith into every facet of our students’ lives.

Family – They have a system of Households on campus (in the residence halls) that promotes a family-like culture.

Academics at AMU are challenging, yet rewarding. With 30 majors to choose from, a 15:1 student-to-faculty ratio and an average class size of 20, students get the attention they deserve from their world-class faculty.

Sports – They have 16 men’s & women’s intercollegiate sports, as well as several intramural sports available for the serious athlete to the weekend warrior and everyone in between.

Arts – From music to drama, they have programs that will meet your passion.

Service – Emanating from their Mother Teresa program, opportunities to serve the less fortunate in the area or on mission trips are prevalent.

They want to be your Homeschooler’s home away from home.

Michigan to Florida:  They are not so far from home. Detroit Metro Airport offers many daily non-stop flights which are under 3 hours. In fact, next to Florida, more students come from Michigan than any other state.

Affordable: With this new Michigan Homeschooled Faith Scholarship – along with generous institutional aid and federal aid, let them show you how affordable they are!

After all that you have invested in your child’s education, don’t just settle for any university. Come visit Ave Maria University and let them show you how an academically excellent and authentically Catholic education can be within your reach.
