Tuition 2024-2025

Tuition, Stewardship & Development

Providing our children with a high-quality, faith-filled education is an effort that requires financial support. The average cost of educating a student is over $8,000 per year. The school is funded through:
  • Tuition payments
  • Stewardship offerings & Parish investment
  • Development commitments
  • Parent Fundraising

Tuition Assistance

We know that Catholic education changes lives. For many families, though, the cost of tuition makes it unattainable. If a family desires a Catholic education for their student, we encourage you to apply for financial assistance through FACTS.

Parish Investment

The parish invested over $88,000 in offerings in the school for the 2023-2024 school year. The church relies on the generosity of school families and all parishioners to make this investment.

Fundraising Commitment

St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick School has a Finance Committee that plans initiatives to grow the school’s Celtic Fund. The Fund covers the cost of multi-student tuition discounts, tuition assistance, academic and technological enhancements, budget shortfalls, and future resources. Each year, a development goal supports this effort. Each family is asked to contribute to support that goal and participate in voluntary fundraising efforts and events. Your support is appreciated!

The St. Alphonsus / St. Patrick School Board- Advisory Council

The mission of School Advisory Council is to promote and support excellence in the Catholic education of St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick School students.


This Council is an essential group created to focus on the development of the school’s long-range plans. The members will review and advise concerning the school budget and setting tuition rates. Furthermore, they will participate in recruitment and act as a public relations and marketing arm of the school.
