St. Patrick Catholic School Tuition Rates/Fees for the 2018/2019 School Year
(2019 - 2020 rates released in Spring 2019)
Number of Children
Non-Parishioners and Non-Catholics
Tuition does not cover all the costs of educating children in our school. The difference is met from the generosity of our parishioners, including financial stewardship, through regular giving to the parish.
We hold New Parishioner Welcome meetings quarterly where you will be able to get a comprehensive overview of the Parish and all your questions answered. Check the parish bulletin for dates.
We offer the following criteria to maintain an "Active Member" status which allows you to receive the discounted "parishioner" rate for school tuition:
- Has completed the parish registration process
- Participates regularly in the liturgical life of the parish
- Supports the parish mission by completing and fulfilling an annual Stewardship commitment of Time, Talent and Treasure
Simply complete the green Family Registration Form and the Parish Stewardship Form (Time, Talent and Treasure) and return it to the church office. Once those forms are turned in to the parish office and you actively participate in the life of the parish, you are considered a Registered Parishioner.
Financial assistance through the Catholic Education Foundation, the new Archdiocesan program, and our local parish community may be available to individual families.
All students of St. Patrick Catholic School are also charged school related fees such as: Pre-registration Fee (non-refundable), book Fee, Technology Fee, etc. While most fees are due and payable at registration in August, certain fees such as the Bus Fee or daily snack charges (for primary grade students) may be due and payable at other times throughout the school year. Families will be advised at registration concerning due dates for all fees and charges. Students leaving St. Patrick Catholic School prior to November 1st may be entitled to a prorated refund of book fees.
How to Apply? There are two tuition assistance programs:
1. Catholic Education Assistance Program (CEF) – this is the primary source of tuition assistance for Catholic Elementary Schools within the Archdiocese of Louisville. Assistance applications to this program are online only and are available at http://ceflou.org/tuition.html. The application has complete, detailed instructions and is operated by FACTS.
**You must apply for the CEF Tuition assistance program before you apply for St. Patrick tuition assistance
2. St. Patrick Tuition Assistance Program
If further tuition assistance is needed after the Catholic Education Foundation Assistance (CEF), please apply to the St. Patrick tuition assistance program by sending an email to the Parish Business Manager, outlining your family involvement in the parish-school ministries and your financial need. A committee of two non-school parishioners, appointed by the Pastor, along with the Business Manager, review the applications without applicant names.
