Tuition and Financial Aid

Our mission is to provide an affordable, exceptional education to all our students. Without comprising quality, St. Christopher School maintains one of the lowest tuition rates of Catholic schools in the area!

 

Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of educating each student. Every year, ALL students automatically receive financial assistance in the form of a tuition discount. For 2018-2019, the cost to educate each student is $6,711, while St. Christopher's tuition rate is at least $1,000 less. This difference is recovered primarily through fundraising efforts and the Parish Support Program (see below).

Tuition Payments

There are three methods of payment. Tuition may be paid all at once, in two equal payments (one in July and one in December), or through a monthly payment plan. All payments are processed online through FACTS, an outside company which manages our financial aid awards and tuition payments. There may be an additional fee for using FACTS. More information may be found HERE.

 

Parish Support Program

Supported families are active participants in their Catholic parishes that are able to obtain a waiver from their parish which reduces the per child cost of tuition. This program is called Parish Support. Approval for the Parish Support program is obtained through a family's parish in January/February, so those interested in the program should contact their parish office well before then to explore parish requirements. Further information on the program is available from the school office.
