Since the opening of the first school it has been the desire of the Diocese of Fall River to make its Catholic schools accessible to all families who wish to provide a Catholic education for their children. 

In 1991, the Diocese of Fall River established the St. Mary’s Education Fund. In 2015, the St. Mary’s Education Fund changed its name to the Foundation to Advance Catholic Education (FACE).
