The Croft Scholarship Fund was established in 1995 in honor of Tim and Margaret Croft. Tim served as pastor of MPPC from 1987 to 1995. This endowed fund exists to provide scholarships for the Weekday School for families with demonstrated financial need, and to help promote diversity within the school. This year, the fund has helped to provide partial tuition for two students who would not otherwise be able to attend the Weekday School. The Weekday School Board hopes to grow the fund to help open the doors of the Weekday School to more of God’s children.
The Myers Park Presbyterian Church Weekday School serves church and community families through two main programs. Our Half-Day Program, begun in 1944, serves 246 students ages 1-5 and employs 43 teachers and staff. Our Full-Day Program, begun in 2010 as a licensed five-star program, serves 60 students ages 6 weeks through age 5 and employs 14 teachers and staff. In addition, our Weekday Wonders summer camp program provides full-day week-long camps for ages K-5th grade. In each of these programs, the Weekday School is committed to offering the highest quality education available in an environment where children grow into their identity as a child of God, have a sense of belonging, and are nurtured in discipleship as they grow in faith.
