Tuition & Financial Aid

2020 Tuition Information

January 28, 2020

Dear Parents,

As we celebrate the gift of Catholic education during Catholic Schools Week, we thank you for your commitment to our Parish School. Because of your investment in your child’s learning experience, St. Francis de Sales continues to be a school of excellence for your child and our community. Each year we strive to include all facets of a quality education such as curriculum improvements, technology updates and campus enhancements.

Now is the time of year we look toward registration for the next school year. The most current cost to educate a student here is $5,878.00. Active and registered parishioners of St. Francis de Sales, Queen of Heaven, St. Paul, and Nativity of the Lord Jesus Parishes are given a substantial parish grant subsidy directly by the student’s parish to greatly reduce the cost of tuition. *There is also a multi-child benefit included. For these parishioners the cost for the 2020-2021 school year is as follows:

The Registration/Technology Fee is $150/student and is due with registration, or it can be combined with tuition and paid through FACTS payment plan.

Please review the form located on the homepage of the website that contains information for opportunities to apply for Diocesan Tuition Assistance through FACTS. This is the application each family must use to apply for any type of financial aid whether it is from the Diocese or our own Parish. Families will not be considered for financial aid without having first completed the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment. Additionally, any family currently receiving aid through the Diocese, the Parish, or a Scholarship must complete the financial aid application form for the 2020-2021 school year. Please read over the application carefully, fill it out completely and include all materials plus the fee for proper processing, abiding by the deadlines. To be considered in the first round of aid, where the largest percentage of financial aid is awarded, everything must be submitted by March 15, 2020. 

Our Parish was given a blessing through a bequest by Chick and Marie Bittner, who believed no child should be left behind when they are seeking a Catholic education.  Due to this gift, if you need to apply for a grant, please call the school or the parish office for more information.

We are using the FACTS Tuition Management Company to process our tuition again next year. If you are currently enrolled in FACTS, you will automatically be re-enrolled, unless you let us know otherwise. If you need to update any information such as address, phone, or bank, please contact Mrs. Lloyd in the school office. All families are required to make their tuition payments through FACTS unless tuition is paid in full by August 1, 2020.

Thank you for all you do, and for being a part of our St. Francis de Sales family.

Gratefully,

St. Francis de Sales Finance Council, Fr. Bline and Mrs. Kathryn Dougherty
