2019-2020 Tuition & Fees
A Partnership Recognizing the Stewardship of All
St. Joseph Parish School makes every effort to keep tuition at a level that allows students eligible to attend our school to do so. In order to bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost to educate each student, parents are obligated to participate in three fundraising activities selected by the school.
Annual Fund: Each family may choose to select an Annual Fund option (chosen in the spring). Gifts to the Annual Fund are solicited yearly and are tax-deductible as allowed by law. All families are asked to be as generous as possible. Payments on pledges can be made as a one-time donation or over a period of time of their choosing. Pledge commitments are due by October 1, 2019. Payments are due by May 31, 2020.
Walk-a-Thon: All families are expected to participate in and contribute to the Walk-a-Thon at the rate of at least $100 per family.
Auction: All families are expected to procure at least $200 worth of items, services or cash, and to contribute to each child’s class Auction project.
Volunteer Hour Obligation
Every parent, regardless of tuition commitment, is required to commit to 45 hours of volunteer hours per school year and use the On-Volunteer website to manage volunteer hours and positions.
Please note – Volunteer Hours are not part of Fundraising Obligations.
Financial Aid is also available for those who qualify. Please CLICK HERE for more information.
THE TABLE BELOW REPRESENTS OUR 2019-2020 TUITION RATES
Eligibility for In-Parish Tuition is determined by the parish office in which you are registered.
Parishioners must be registered at St. Joseph Parish, Our Lady of Sorrows or Mary Queen of Peace Parish. Parishioners must meet their parish’s criteria: 1) registered at parish; 2) regular attendance at Sunday Mass; 3) a current Stewardship of Treasure Card on file and make a good faith effort to keep their Stewardship of Treasure commitment through the year; and 4) contribute to the life of the parish. For financial subsidy purposes, families registered in parishes other than St. Joseph are asked to remain registered and active in that parish through the end of the school year. Please contact your parish office if you have questions about your parishioner status
