Tuition & Fees

Tuition Rates 2024-2025

The school charges tuition at two different rates. St. Francis of Assisi Parish provides financial support to the school in order to help defray some of the cost of tuition for active, registered parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi Parish who want a Catholic education for their children.  In order to be considered for In-Parish Tuition, the following criteria must be met:
  • At least one parent is baptized Catholic
  • Enrolled children are all baptized Catholic
  • The family is registered with St. Francis of Assisi Parish AND has a current Stewardship of Treasure commitment card on file with the Parish office
  • The family has a record of regularly contributing to St. Francis of Assisi Parish for at least six months
It is expected that families receiving in-parish tuition are actively involved with the parish. This is includes regular attendance at weekend Mass. As Archbishop Etienne states, “We are called to attend Mass in person, to enter into God’s sacred space to physically encounter the Lord in an extraordinary way, entering into the liturgy, worshiping God in community with others.”

If a family becomes eligible for in-parish tuition during a school year, the in-parish rate will go into effect the following school year. 
If you aren't sure which plan applies to you, please contact the school office at 206-243-5690.  Families' status is verified by the Parish Office, and those who do not meet their parish responsibility will be moved to the "Out of Parish" tuition rate.

  • The annual Enrollment Fee is $226.00 per student, due with registration.  This assures a child's placement, and is non-refundable.
  • Students in the 6th grade attend Camp Waskowitz outdoor camp and families are responsible for the costs associated with attending the camp (if scheduling and current health conditions allow participation).  Detailed information on the cost per family for camp is sent out in the fall.
  • The 8th grade retreat requires a nominal fee (if current health conditions allow participation).  


Fundraising Responsibility 2024-2025

  • Each family must procure an items or services worth no less than $200.00 for the Annual Spirit Auction.  If the procurement form is returned after the stated due date, the family will incur a $50 late fee for a total of $250.00 charge through FACTS.  
  • Profit dollars of $400.00 will be required of each family, due by March 31, 2025.  Profit dollars are earned from SCRIP purchases, magazine orders, and Red, White & Brew purchases.  SCRIP purchases and profit dollars earned will be tracked for each family.  If you earn more than $400 in profit dollars, fifty percent of what you earn will still be rebated to you. 
  • The Annual Fund Pledge for the 2024-2025 school year is required to be completed by March 31, 2025.

Volunteer Hours

We ask parents for 30 volunteers hours (20 General hours, and 10 Fundraising hours).  The rate is $40.00/unworked hour.  Various events and efforts are coordinated during the school year where parents can volunteer their time and talent to enhance their students' learning experience.  CLICK HERE for a listing of volunteer opportunities, or see the PA Volunteer Commitment Guide.  Please contact the Parents' Association at [email protected] with questions regarding volunteer opportunities.  For accounting questions, please contact Christy Nason in the school office at [email protected].

Payment Option
If a family opts to pay cash rather than participate in fundraising responsibilities for the 2024-2025 school year, the total amount owed is $1,800.00 due in April 2025.  

Failure To Meet Contracted Financial Obligations
Failure to make full payments of tuition, to contribute regularly to the parish, or to meet fundraising obligations may have serious consequences. These include denial of student records or it may even affect the child’s continued attendance at the school. St. Francis of Assisi School reserves the right to pursue any other action deemed appropriate.
