Tuition Information


Tuition for the 2022-2023 school year is due August 1, 2022.  

WHAT’S NEW THIS YEAR?

Last year we offered electronic payment options for all of our families through Blackbaud Tuition Management (formerly SMART Tuition). This year, we’re implementing Blackbaud’s online enrollment feature allowing parents to enroll online as well. We continue to streamline the process to save parents’ time and reduce our labor costs. Reduced labor costs makes more dollars available for education with fewer dollars going to administrative paperwork.

We will be assessing your tuition bill starting April 1, 2022. But, we cannot bill you for tuition until we know whether your family will be taking advantage of the parishioner discount.

As in the past several years, you must be a registered parishioner and make an annual stewardship pledge to support the Parish by March 31, 2022 to get the parishioner discount on tuition. If you missed that deadline call us or drop by the Parish Office ASAP.

TUITION PHILOSOPHY:

St. Mary Parish charges parents/guardians a tuition rate that is competitive with our peer group of private Catholic schools, but covers only about half of the cost of educating your children.  The parishioners of St. Mary’s cover the other half of the cost.  Therefore, families who are active parishioners and supporting the parish pay lower tuition rates.

TUITION PLEDGE FORMS:

Set up an electronic pledge and avoid the annual paperwork.  Your Tuition pledge forms (listed to the right under forms)is necessary every year for us to assess family eligibility for Parishioner Subsidized tuition rates vs Non-Parishioner rates.   To qualify for the much lower Parishioner Subsidized rate, you must complete a new Tuition Payment Contract each year OR have an ongoing electronic pledge arrangement through ACH.   We are not requiring annual contracts from families with ongoing monthly ACH commitments as they serve the same purpose.  

Families who do not return the Tuition Payment Contract or who do not have an electronic monthly pledge arrangement in place,  may be assessed at the higher non-parishioner rate of tuition.  

Policy is effective April 1, of 2022.
