Tuition and Financial Aid
Our mission is to provide an affordable, exceptional education to all our students. Without comprising quality, St. Christopher School maintains the lowest tuition of Catholic schools in the area!
Tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is as follows:
Half Day PreKindergarten -- $4,600.00
Full Day PreKindergarten -- $5,850.00
Full Day Kindergarten -- $5,850.00
Grades 1 to 6 -- $5,460.00
Grades 1 to 6 with Parish Support -- $4,419.00
St. Christopher School does not impose any fundraising requirements or fees on its families. We also do not charge technology, textbook, or material fees.
Please note: 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. St. Christopher's tuition rate is as much as $1,800 less than the actual cost of educating each student.
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
Families who are active participants in a Catholic parish are able to obtain a waiver from that parish which reduces the cost of tuition. In 2019-2020, families in the Parish Support program will receive a tuition discount of $1,041 per child. 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.
