Is my parish a supporting parish?

To receive the supporting parish discount on tuition, you must be an active member of your parish. We encourage each family to be able to answer “yes” to the following questions:   

  • Is this family registered with one of our supporting parishes?
  • Does this family keep in communion and participate in Holy Mass?
  • Does this family offer their parish their time, talent, and/or treasure, however limited?
  • Does this family respond through their parish to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal insofar as their means allow?
  • Does this family accept the Catholic educational mission of their parish and our school system? Please contact your pastor with any questions about parish membership.

I am not Catholic. How can I reduce my tuition?
You can reduce your tuition through Guardian Angel Scholarship Fund, a kindergarten referral program, family tuition cap, and Scrip program available to households of all denominations.

How do volunteer hours affect my financial situation?
Your volunteer time for our schools and Catholic parishes provides a means to keep our operation costs low. It is calculated that every volunteer hour saves the school system $12.50.  That “money” is used for grant-writing purposes to obtain needed items for our schools.
