**Since tuition does not cover the full costs borne by the school to educate the student, each Catholic parish in this Archdiocese will pay a $500.00 subsidy per student for registered and contributing parishioners. The subsidy does not reduce the cost of tuition listed above. If for any reason your parish does not pay the subsidy, you must do so. The due date for payment is December 31st. After the school year has begun it is due at time of enrollment. Families who are not members of a Catholic parish are required to pay their subsidy by July 1st or at time of enrollment once the school year has begun.

Subsidy Requirements:
  • Must have registered in parish for one year prior to the commencement of the school year for which the operational subsidy is requested.
  • Must be in attendance at Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation on a regular basis.
  • Must contribute to the support of the Church by practice of Christian Stewardship and Sacrificial Giving of Time, Talent, and Money.
