Tuition and Financial Assistance
To operate St. Mary's School it is necessary we collect tuition to help pay a part of the total education bill. St. Mary's strives to keep tuition within the means of our school families.
Tuition payments cover about half of the costs of educating our students; the parish subsidizes the remainder of the costs. That is why all parish families are expected to contribute to the parish subsidy of the school through their weekly stewardship offering made to St. Mary's Church. The money given to the church is above and beyond the tuition for the school.
There are several options for payment, including affordable tuition payments that can be spread out over 12 months. Please choose what fits you best. Of course up front lump sums are always welcome. We ask that you make your tuition payments through automatic withdrawal.
All families will be required to sign the Tuition Agreement form which will list the initial tuition/registration fee and remaining amount due.
Please talk to Dr. Trish Wallinger, our School Principal, about tuition assistance programs.
Our Parish strives to make a Catholic School education available to all students! Please visit with us if you have financial concerns!
