Applications for financial aid were due to the school office by February 22, 2013. Tuition rates at St. Catherine School reflect a sincere effort to stay affordable while providing the resources to adequately compensate our skilled and knowledgeable teaching staff. The tuition-setting process involves members of the school budget committee, the principal, the pastoral life director, school commission, parish finance council, and the pastoral council. If you have any questions regarding Tuition Assistance, please contact our principal, Ms. Mary Helen Bever.
In order to better fulfill our mission as a Catholic School, and to enable parents who desire Catholic schooling for their children to be able to afford that schooling, we offer access and utilization of our tuition assistance fund. If you feel that you may have difficulty meeting monthly tuition payments next year, we would like to encourage you to apply for tuition assistance.
New students may be screened by our Learning Specialist to assess learning needs. With registration, new students will need to include copies of their: Birth Certificate, Baptismal Certificate, First Reconciliation and First Eucharist Certificate (if applicable), verification of immunizations, report card (last semester/trimester – for students entering grades 1-8), and most current standardized test results.
Because St. Catherine School relies heavily on parent volunteers and supplemental income to keep tuition affordable, each K-8 family must commit to 40 hours of volunteer work for the school and/or parish (single parent families contribute 20 hours). Five of these hours must be completed in connection with the school auction. In addition, each family contributes a $150 item to the school auction, participates in the school Annual Fund Drive, and must purchase $1,000 in Scrip. Preschool families are encouraged to become active in the school and are required to purchase $250 worth of scrip and contribute a $100 item to the school auction. Many volunteer opportunities exist and all K-8 families are asked to complete a Service Hour Agreement as part of the registration process. Volunteer opportunities help build a sense of community at St. Catherine School and we appreciate your participation.
