Tuition & Fee Info

Fees & Additional Information


  • *Monthly rates are based on 12 equal monthly payments. Students who register/enter after July 1st may have differently monthly amounts. 

  • 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.

  • You must be a registered, contributor of record, participating member of St. Joseph Catholic Church to receive Catholic tuition. However, if you are registered at another area parish, are active and are a contributor of record, you may be eligible for Catholic tuition. You must submit to us proof of your registration from that parish. Please have a copy of the baptismal certificate and parish affidavit at the time of registration.

  • Pre-K students may choose 5 days per week, Monday/Wednesday/Friday only, or Tuesday/Thursday only.  If other arrangements are needed, please contact the principal.  If school is not in session due to holiday or weather on a day that a part-time student regularly attends, those days will not be made-up.

  • Some tuition assistance money is available for Catholic students in grades K-8.  The tuition assistance application is available online at sjfayschool.com/admissions. Applications must be submitted by April 1st, with 1040 and W-2 as supporting documents.

  • For families that have Pre-K or Kindergarten students and older students, the older students will be considered as the 2nd or 3rd child as appropriate.  If a child attends partial week Pre-K and that tuition rate is lower than rates for other children, the partial rate may be considered in place of 2nd or 3rd child as appropriate.  

  • An Improvement Fund fee of $500 is required of all families new to St. Joseph Catholic School.  A first payment of $100 is due at the time of registration.  The remainder can be equally divided throughout the year.

  • All tuition must be paid by monthly automatic draft or pre-paid in one lump sum by June 15th.

  • Families who withdraw after July 1 will be required to pay a $250 withdrawal fee or the portion of tuition equal to the number of days attended, whichever is higher. 

  • Kindergarten students are to be Age 5 on or before September 1.

  • Pre-Kindergarten students are to be Age 4 on or before September 1 or Age 3 on or before September 1.  Students who turn 3 before January 1 may enroll in Pre-K after Christmas if space allows.  Preschool students must be potty-trained before starting school.
