Please know that our school is not supported by state equalization funds (like public schools). Our teachers are paid with tuition and fundraising moneys. The cost to educate a child in our school is $5,300.00 per year, and our school is able to meet these costs with the help of the parish, fundraising, and CTSO. However, in an effort to make our school more self-supporting and having to rely less on the parish support, we have found the need to implement the following fees:
After registration is completed, families may apply for CTSO funds. We advise early application before all these funds are depleted.
Each parent is required to sign a Tuition Commitment Form explaining the total (per-pupil) cost for their child's attendance at our school, and the portion they are committing to pay for the year. This form outlines the parish and fundraising subsidies their child will be receiving for the year along with any scholarships or tuition reductions they have been awarded to help cover the entire cost of their child's attendance at our school.
The parent/guardian may terminate their child's enrollment upon written notice. St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School reserves the right to terminate a student's enrollment at any time. Tuition is not refunded for the month of withdrawal or for the 1st month payment.
