Please Note: The Parishioner family rate is dependent upon active involvement in any Catholic Parish. In order to receive this rate, you must have your parish verified by your Pastor. Please fill in the Parishioner Verification Form, submit it to your Pastor for a signature, and return it with your registration form to the school. If a form is not received, you will be charged the monthly Non-Parishioner rate. We need an updated form each school year.
Tuition Assistance: We are working very hard to build up a tuition assistance / scholarship fund. If you are in need of financial assistance, please make this known to the principal. We will do our best to work with you and provide you with the necessary forms. Some assistance is also available from the National Parochial School Association. If you are interested in K12 grants and scholarships from the NPSA, please email email@example.com.
Fundraising: Tuition does not cover the actual cost per student. Fundraising is still a real and necessary component of Catholic Education. Everyone who registers in a Catholic School must assume responsibility for their fair share of fundraising. We ask that all families read and sign the Fundraising Commitment form indicating their choice for fundraising options. We also ask each family to solicit or donate at least 3 items and non-alcoholic beverages for the Annual Auction.
