  • All families paying the Catholic tuition rate must be registered with a parish and show regular Sunday Mass attendance. Families who are registered at a parish other than St. Joseph must complete a parish affidavit to receive the Catholic tuition rate.  Families moving to the area must provide an affidavit from their previous parish. A blank parish affidavit can be downloaded during online registration.

  • Tuition amounts listed above do not include lunch, aftercare, or our summer program.

  • Tuition payments will be made through FACTS Tuition Management System.

  • If a tuition draft is unsuccessful due to insufficient funds or any other reason, FACTS will automatically attempt to re-draft two more times. FACTS will email families prior to each draft attempt.

  • At the time of registration, all families are required to submit a $200 non-refundable registration fee.  Grades 6, 7, and 8 require an additional non-refundable $120 technology fee per student.

Part-time Pre-K students may add drop-in days if space allows for $60 per day.
