Tuition and Scholarships

Tuition should be paid in FULL for the school year by June 15th. Payment should be made directly to St. Andrew Catholic School. ATTN: Finance Department

In addition, a $260 registration fee (non-refundable) per child is assessed.

Any plan other than paying the tuition IN FULL must be paid with an agreement through the FACTS Tuition Management Program.

Please note that this tuition rate is all-inclusive: tuition, books, and technology fees are all covered. As with the past few years, staffing will be equal to enrollment. Academics, sports, and arts programs have been increased, not eliminated. The pastoral staff, as well as the faculty and administration of St. Andrew Catholic School, recognize that our students are not responsible for the state of the economy and their education remains our priority.

Without fiscal stability, St. Andrew Catholic School cannot continue to provide students with a high-quality Catholic education. Fiscal stability is only possible with the cooperation of all families involved. The School Finance Committee of the School Board, in an effort to ensure that needed operational funds derived from tuition be both timely and sufficient, utilizes a policy concerning late or overdue payments. Anytime a problem arises with tuition not paid through FACTS, this committee is notified and action is taken accordingly.

Parents sign an agreement each year to follow these guidelines. This policy is intended to serve the needs of the entire community.
