Tuition, Fees, and Tuition Assistance

Tuition is a major source of income for St. Thomas More Catholic School, along with the parish subsidy. Since the school operates on a very small budget, timely receipt of tuition payments is essential. Tuition statements are sent according to the plan you agree upon at the time of registration.

 

The following list shows the tuition payment plans available:

1 payment due on September 5;

4 payments due on August 5, November 5, February 5, and May 5; 

10 payments due Aug 5 through May 5


If you are unable to pay by the 5th of the month, or if you have any questions regarding tuition, please call the bookkeeper or if circumstances cause financial concerns, please call the Principal.


The total tuition cost to parents is far below the actual cost to the school and the parish. We therefore feel it is important for you to be aware that ST. THOMAS MORE PARISH provides a large financial commitment for school support. Therefore, we ask that you be generous in your SUPPORT OF OUR PARISH. Most are charged "IN-PARISH TUITION" because it is presumed that you are giving financial support to the Parish.

No student will be refused admission to St. Thomas More Catholic School because of GENUINE INABILITY to pay. Partial tuition assistance must be approved by the Principal and the Pastor. Parents/Guardians contract a moral, if not legal, obligation to pay their tuition and other school bills. If they consistently fail to do so, the school may apply the following sanctions:

 
  • Refusal to re-admit to school at the end of the first semester, any student whose tuition is in arrears.
  • Refusal to re-admit to school in September, any student whose past bills are not paid in full.
  • Refuse the transfer of records to a new school until all fees are paid in full.

Tuition Assistance

St. Thomas More School does have some Tuition Assistance available to registered families.  If you request Tuition Assistance, you will be required to meet with the Principal to discuss such assistance, as well as asked to provide paperwork outlining your current financial situation.  Again, no student will be refused admission to St. Thomas More Catholic School because of a GENUINE INABILITY to pay tuition.  The Principal is very open to working with individuals of all income levels to come to an arrangement that satisfies both your needs as well as the needs of the school.
