Help: Mariachi Student Raise Tuition $

The Ask: 

Anthony Robles, a 15-year-old Texas student, needs to raise $4,744.00 to pay for registration, new student fee, insurance, boarding fees and airline tickets to and from St. Albans School (in Washington, DC), for the 2020/2021 school year.  He will enter STA as a 10th grade boarding student from San Angelo, Texas.  

He has been invited to study at the prestigious St. Albans School (, an all-boys day and boarding school located in the shadow of Washington’s National Cathedral.  

Funds are needed by August 15, 2020 to supplement a generous STA scholarship awarded to Anthony based on his superior scholastic and music achievements.  

Unique Opportunity:

Anthony, a mariachi trumpet player in Lake View High School's mariachi program, will be the first Texan-Latino to attend STA!  

The Mariachi Program is an award-winning program.  It is open to students of all backgrounds.  And, provides essential life (team work, math, etc.) and music skills to students living in an economically challenged area.
