2019-2020 School Year
**NOTE: Pre-School / Pre-Kindergarten will be available only as full-day options in the 2019-2020 School Year - there will be no half-day options. Also, there will be NO 2 Day/Week option.
New Family Registration is $75 per student (maximum $150 per family). Returning Family Registration is $75 per student (maximum of $150 per family). After March 15th, 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 2019-2020 school year to be $9,190, 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 and special gifts will be approximately $3,965. We rely on the efforts of our families to fill in the remaining tuition gap of $300 per student through dedicated fundraising efforts. The balance remaining to educate each student is paid through regular tuition payments.
Fundraising income is a significant component of St. Raphael Catholic School's operational budget. All families are expected to participate in the school fundraising activities. This helps mitigate the rising cost of education without a significant increase in tuition. A fundraising fee of $300 will be added to all families total tuition invoice. All families are expected to participate in at least 3 approved Fundraisers or Enrollment promotion activities. A Fund Raising credit of $300 will be provided upon completion of 3 activities.
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 2019-2020 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.
