Will tuition be discounted if/when students are in distance learning mode?

We recognize that these times are challenging on so many levels, including heightened anxiety in many families around finances. We have done our best to look at St. Francis’ operating budget for 2020-21 with an eye on where we could hold costs and what new costs are associated with adapting to the uncertainty and new requirements caused by COVID-19.

Although we made thoughtful and hard decisions with the best interests of our families in mind, tuition will not be discounted for the 2020-21 year. Some financial decisions that were made include the rolling back of tuition to the 2019-20 rate and freezing salaries for the year. We have experienced increased technology costs associated with providing instructor-led distance learning and the synchronous hybrid learning platform, as well as the COVID-19 related expenses associated with PPE and physical modifications to campus to prepare for the return of students. Tuition assistance costs have also increased as additional students/families have requested assistance.

Because we diligently strive to keep tuition affordable for as many families as we can, the actual cost to educate each student is $2,000 more than is charged in tuition. We will continue to rely on the generosity of our parent, alumnae and greater St. Francis community to help us make up the difference to provide an exceptional and holistic education for our students. Even under the COVID circumstances, we will continue to offer the value-added programs and services that our students and families count on, albeit in a modified and safe way, to ensure that students have the full Troubie experience.
