Tuition and Fees

FINANCES

The faculty of the school is hired for one year and students’ programs are planned for the year on that basis.  The enrollment of a student indicates that his parents understand that all school expenses and commitments were made with the assumption that the student will remain in the school for the entire year.  The Advisory Board reserves the right to adjust tuition if necessary to meet unforeseen emergencies.  Parents will be given adequate notice if such an adjustment becomes necessary.

_________________________________________________________________________

Tuition Assistance: Family must be Registered to apply for assistance.

Anyone interested in applying for tuition assistance may do so one of two ways:

1.) Contacting your church parish about the possibility of receiving assistance. Many church parishes have their

own assistance programs. (St. Joseph Parish does not, their program goes through the school.)

2.) Complete a RCE TUITION ASSISTANCE REQUEST Form from the school’s office. For consideration, all

forms must be completed and returned to the school’s office by April 24, 2018.

  • Tuition assistance for a school year is determined in the Spring prior to that school year following registration.
  • Tuition assistance does not automatically carry over from year to year. If you are presently receiving assistance, you must re-apply each year. All grants are partial in nature – no ‘full’ tuition grants are given.
