 ENROLLMENT FEES:

Registration, Materials and Book Fee of $125 per child is due at time of registration. This amount serves as a down-payment. This payment is deducted from your total tuition amount, it secures your spot for the upcoming school year and is non-refundable.  

Playground Supervision Parents may either serve 4 days/child of playground duty during the lunch recess or for PreK morning recess or pay a $50.00 playground fee per child.

 TUITION ASSISTANCE:

Spending money on Catholic Education for your child is one of the best investments you can make. St. Peter School believes that every child who wants a Catholic Education should have access to a Catholic Education.  We also believe that money should not be a barrier to a Catholic Education.

It is our goal to make tuition affordable. We strive to make our costs low enough for all families to afford tuition. However, we do recognize that some families lack the resources to pay the tuition fee. A family does not need to be living below the poverty level to qualify for tuition assistance. It is possible, that based on a variety of factors, your family could qualify for tuition assistance.

To be considered for tuition assistance, families submit financial information to a third-party organization, TADS, Financial Aid Assessment. TADS is an online service that assesses the family’s income and financial obligations (including college costs and tuition for other children in school), and recommends the amount the family can afford to pay for tuition. Once St. Peter School receives this recommendation we allocate the necessary dollars for tuition assistance.

Tuition Assistance Requests can be accepted any time during the academic year. A determination of assistance will be made within three weeks of the request.

Amount of Assistance Awarded

St. Peter Catholic School has a limited amount of tuition assistance funding available each year. The amount of the tuition assistance provided will be based on need, additional financial clarifications provided through the TADS program, and available funding.  

Emergency Tuition Assistance

Emergency tuition assistance subsidies may be awarded to families that experience unexpected hardship during a school year. Emergency tuition assistance subsidies can be applied for at any time during the school year.

TADS TUITION ASSISTANCE PROCESS

Tuition assistance is based on demonstrated need. If you believe that your resources are insufficient then we encourage you to apply through the TADS website http://www.tads.com/financial-aid-assessment/

TADS is based on a framework through which household need can be measured impartially and justly. Recommendations from TADS are used by the Principal and Pastor of St. Peter School to make a final determination.

Applications

To complete your tuition assistance application, go to http://www.mytads.com/ or pick up an application at the St. Peter Catholic School Office, complete the application and mail it to the TADS office.  The TADS process has a $38.00 dollar charge per family that is nonrefundable and paid directly to TADS.

Records will be kept in the school office from year to year to track tuition assistance. Identifying information shall be removed and records will be identified by number.

Supporting Documentation

TADS requires the following documents to assist in the tuition determination process. These documents are considered confidential—not made available to school personnel.

  • Household members’ most recently completed federal tax forms (personal and businesses owned)
  • W-2’s from each job held by household members
  • Most recent pay stub from each job held by household members
  • Documents that establish the amount of miscellaneous monthly or yearly income you currently receive (i.e., welfare, food stamps, unemployment, workers’ compensation, etc.,)
  • All corporate, partnership, and trust forms if a household member owns 20% or more interest in a corporation, partnership or trust
