Welcome to Manhattan Catholic Schools

Application for Free & Reduced-Price Meals

All families are encouraged to complete the online 2024-2025 Application for Free or Reduced-Price Meal Benefits. A new application must be submitted each school year. Only students with approved applications will receive free or reduced-price meals for the 2024-2025 school year. For questions, contact Kyleen Harris, 785-565-5050, kharris@manhattancatholicschools.org. Click here to visit the MCS Food Service Department page for more information about the Online Application, School Nutrition Programs, and Wellness Policy.


2024-2025 School Meal Prices

School meal prices will increase by 15 cents for the 2024-2025 school year. Student meal prices have not been raised since 2019. The price adjustment is in response to an increase in food and supply costs as well as a decrease in federal reimbursement. The goal is to operate our school meal program at a break-even point. Every effort will be made to keep prices as low as possible while providing nutritious meals to students.

See Our Updated Playground!

On Friday, April 14, Fr Ryan McCandless led a procession of students, staff, and parents to the MCS playground after the All-School Mass to bless the new playground!  A huge โ€œTHANK YOUโ€ goes to everyone who helped make this vision a reality, from the donors, the project volunteers, and the busniness who made this project come to life.  This would not have happened without you!
