Reduced Rate: $8,000 (Available to qualifying St. Paul the Apostle Parishioners.)
To qualify for the Reduced Rate, you must:
Full Rate: $11,000 per year
Please note: Each January, all parishioners are reviewed for Reduced Rate tuition consideration. If a change in status occurs, the family will be contacted by the Parish office. Tuition rates may increase annually.
Pre-Registration Fee: $450.00 per child
The pre-registration fee covers all student consumable materials such as workbooks, library materials, media, art literacy and standardized testing. The fee also covers field trips and software. By offering innovative programs and highly qualified teachers we can ensure the continuation of educational excellence, which St. Paul’s has been known for throughout the past seventy-five years.
Financial Aid is not available to new families their first year at St. Paul the Apostle School. Parishioners who have attended the school for at least one full year are eligible to apply each spring. Filing an application for financial aid does not guarantee remittance of aid.

Re: Expectations of School Families who register in St. Paul’s Parish
An active parishioner of St. Paul the Apostle Church is someone who is officially registered in the parish, is a regular participant in Sunday worship, and is involved in the activities of the parish. We have sought to clarify this policy:
St. Paul the Apostle School is a parish school. Currently the cost of educating each student is $1,325.00 over the reduced rate tuition. To help cover this difference those receiving reduced rate must be participating and contributing members, financial participation and volunteer history in the parish is taken into consideration (see tuition policy).
The school budget must be approved by the School Board and its sub-finance committee as well as the Parish Finance Council before it is submitted to the Archdiocese for final approval. To accommodate the Archdiocese’s deadline, there must be a clear understanding in April of the anticipated income for the following year. To accomplish balanced budget tuition rates are set in April.
