Tuition Q & A
Q: Who is an active registered parishioner?
A: Parishioners are Catholics who have completed and submitted a new parishioner packet with the church office, faithfully attend Mass at Saint Patrick and fulfill their annual Stewardship pledge of time, talents and treasure.
Q: Does tuition cover all costs?
A: There will be a few other fees including a non-refundable Registration Fee, a book and technology fee as well as an optional Bus Fee, daily snack fee for primary grades and uniform/spirit wear costs. Fortunately, our tuition is subsidized by the generosity of our parishioners through financial stewardship which allows us to keep our costs down. Lunch service is optional and is provided through Taher Catering for a daily cost.
Q: How do we pay and when?
A: Tuition payments for the upcoming school year begin July 1 st , which is the beginning of each new fiscal year. Payments will be made automatically through the FACTS Management Company.
Further questions can be answered by contacting the parish business office at (502)244-6083.
Q: Am I expected to continue tithing to the church along with my tuition payments?
A: Financial support from a ll parishioners is essential to continue covering parish expenses and provide for our many ministries. It is acknowledged that many school families may find it difficult to meet the tradition of 5% to the church and 5% to other charities along with a tuition payment.
Therefore, we ask all parishioners to prayerfully discern what gift they can give, and fulfill their commitment each year.
Q: Is there financial aid available and do we need to be Catholic to apply?
A: Yes! There are two sources of financial aid. First, you need to apply to the Catholic Education Fund (CEF) through the Archdiocese of Louisville. You d o not need to be Catholic to apply. The form can be downloaded from our school website or provided in the church office. Visit www.ceflou.org for more details Your CEF application will go simultaneously to the St. Patrick tuition assistance program. The sooner you apply the better your chances of receiving an award after qualifying. The application opens in mid December. Depending on the monetary response from Archdiocese assistance, your request will then be evaluated through the St. Patrick tuition assistance program. Additional information may be requested at that point and all application information will be kept confidential. The goal is to make enrollment at St. Patrick Catholic School as accessible as possible.
