Tuition and Registration

2021 – 2022 Tuition and Registration

Contrary to popular belief, tuition alone does not pay the bills at any Catholic school. The cost to educate one child in our K-6 program is approximately $5,800. Our parish picks up a great deal of this cost, relying heavily on the offertory collection at the weekend Masses. That is one reason why it is so critical that families are registered with our parish and that they attend Sunday Mass, contributing to the Sunday collection to the extent that they are able. There will be NO increase in K-6 tuition at the elementary schools. The tuition for preschool 3s (T/Th mornings) will remain $1175, and preschool 4/young 5s (M/W/F full day) will remain $2700. Our Little Saints Preschool Enrichment Program offers options for additional days and hours. Please see the preschool flyer on the back for pricing information, or call the school office for more information.

Little Saints Preschool and Preschool Enrichment at St. John Tuition

This means that your child becomes familiar with and accustomed to music class, gym class and technology time, as well as other specials opportunities. Through Reading Buddies with older students and involvement in various all-school activities, our preschoolers are truly a part of our St. John School family. For our students, advancing to Kindergarten is not a leap, but a natural and comfortable step.

Reduce your tuition by participating in our Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (T.R.I.P.) earning tuition credits.

The Tuition Reduction Incentive Program (T.R.I.P.) is an exciting opportunity to accumulate credit toward tuition costs. Families who use TRIP can potentially reduce their tuition by hundreds of dollars each year by shopping at participating merchants. Through TRIP, gift certificates from grocery stores, restaurants, and many other businesses are purchased at a discount. The certificates are then sold to participating families at face value, with the discount passed on in the form of a tuition credit.
