2018-2019 School Year
New Family Registration is $100 per student (maximum $200 per family). Returning Family Registration is $75 per student (maximum of $150 per family). After March 16th, new and returning family registration will be $150 per student (maximum $300 per family). Once the registration fee and online application have been received, you will be contacted by our school administration to assist you in taking your next step toward enrollment at St. Raphael Catholic School.
We have calculated the total cost of educating each student for the 2018-2019 school year to be $7,900, based on stable enrollment. The Church of St. Raphael provides a significant contribution to help defray this cost and make our school more affordable for families. This year, the anticipated contribution per student, from the Church of St. Raphael will be approximately $2,500. We rely on the efforts of our families to fill in the remaining $475 tuition gap through dedicated fundraising efforts, and private donations. The balance remaining to educate each student is paid through regular tuition payments.
All families are encouraged to participate in school fundraisers. The fundraising contribution goal per student is $275 per school year.
All tuition payments must be paid through TADS; neither the school or parish office will be able to accept tuition payment in any form (cash, check, wire transfer, credit card, or money order). Although TADS prefers ACH electronic payments, they will also accept money orders, checks, and credit cards (when using credit cards, a 3% processing fee will be added to your payment).
Once again, we will be using TADS to calculate tuition assistance allocation for those who are in need. Once you have completed your online registration for the 2018-2019 school year, TADS will provide you information and a link to apply for tuition assistance. Tuition assistance will be provided on a first come, first served basis according to the guidelines established by the Parish Finance Council. Families who have applied for tuition assistance by April 15th will be notified of their tuition assistance status by June 1st.
