Tuition Collection The timely collection of the Regional School tuition is imperative for two reasons: To meet the operating expenses To avoid time-consuming collection efforts
Tuition Policy In order to enter school in September, all prior years tuition must be paid in full. Annual tuition is payable in 10 equal payments, beginning July 1 st and ending April 1 st. Tuition payments are to be made on the first day of the month, regardless of who is responsible for the tuition or any portion of the tuition.
Tuition Policy In order for a student to enter school in September, the first three monthly installments must be paid. In order for a student to return to school in January, the tuition account must be current. In order for a student to return to school on May 1 st, the tuition must be paid in full.
Tuition Policy Consideration may be afforded by a pastor to families with unforeseen financial hardship. In order to participate in an eighth grade class trip, tuition must be paid in full. It is mandatory that the School parents actively support the Schools fundraising activities and thereby fulfill their familys annual $300 fundraising responsibility by May 1st.
Regional School Families Financial Support for their Parish Similar to all parishioners, Regional School families are expected to be present and participating at their parishs weekend liturgy, and they are expected to be financially supporting the mission of the Church. Each Parish Community has their own particular policy regarding participation.
Parishes Contributions for their School Families Each of the four sponsoring Parish Communities have committed themselves to providing $125,000 per year toward the Catholic school education of their parish children. With this substantial financial commitment comes the expectation that all parish children and their parents are actively worshiping within their own parish community and financially supporting their parish community.
Regional School Families Participation There is a spiritual responsibility to bring the children to Mass each and every week. There is a responsibility of all Regional School parents to financially support the mission of the Church.
Tuition Rate Schedules For parishioners of the four sponsoring parishes, there are two Tuition Rate Schedules: Participating families Non-participating families.
Tuition Rate Schedules For the current school year, as a sign of goodwill, the four pastors granted all families a grace period regarding their tuition rates, that is, all families were considered as participating and were afforded the Participating Family Tuition Rate Schedule.
Tuition Rate Schedules Sadly and regrettably, many families chose not to participate at Mass within their local Parish Community and not to adequately support their Parish financially. For 2011-2012, these families will be charged a higher tuition rate.
Participating Families Discounted Tuition Rate Schedule In order to qualify for the Participating Family Rates, that is, the discounted Tuition Rate Schedule, a family must meet their own Parish Communitys requirements. Parishioners not meeting their Parishs requirements, will be designated as a non- participating family, and will be charged a higher tuition rate.
Non-Participating Families Tuition Rate Schedule A non-participating family will not be afforded the Discounted Tuition Rate Schedule, and therefore will be charged an additional $700 per family. In future years, this additional charge will be increasing substantially.
Cost Per Student Number Per Total of Student Cost Students Cost 2010-2011 $2,202,200 535 $ 4,100 2011-2012 $2,154,000 510 $ 4,223
Tuition Rates 2011-2012 Rate* Increase One Child$3,000 $200 Two Children$5,200 $300 Three Children $7,400 $400 * Non-Contributing Families: Add $700
Tuition Rates 2011-2012 A $200 increase would be equivalent to $20 per month or $5 per week. A $300 increase would be equivalent to $30 per month or $7.50 per week. A $400 increase would be equivalent to $40 per month or $10 per week.

Tuition Assistance BLOCS/Bridge/Bravo There are sources of financial assistance, such as BLOCS, Bridge Education Foundation and Bravo. Please consult Mrs. Colleen Blair in our school office for more information.
Tuition Credits Tuition can be reduced by participating in the following parish-sponsored Programs: Scrip Program St. Joseph the Worker Parish Immaculate Conception Parish Pot of Gold Program St. Frances Cabrini Parish For more information, please contact the individual parish.
Fund Raising Each family is required to participate in the fund raising activities so as to generate a net amount of $300 to supplement their familys tuition by May 1st. Some fund raising activities will provide a 50% credit and other activities will provide a 100% credit.
Regional Schools Expectations 1. Weekly Participation at Mass by all Regional School parents and children.
Regional Schools Expectations 2. Weekly contributions in accordance with ones own Parish Community.
Regional Schools Expectations 3. Timely payment of tuition due.
Conclusion Believing that our Regional School is a most wonderful and precious gift to our respective Parish Communities, it is most important that everyone be aware of the need to be supportive of all the efforts being made to provide this Catholic School education for the children.
Conclusion Having successfully established our Holy Family Regional Catholic School in which our children are experiencing a safe and wonderful environment for learning, are excelling in their educational endeavors, and growing in their knowledge and love of God, and their commitment to their family and their community, we are moving forward with faith, determination and commitment to excellence!
