April is the final month for tuition payments. Please be aware that accounts in arrears may be assessed a $35 late fee charge per month and experience delays and/or holds in student records including a delay in receiving their class schedules for the coming school year.
Special Note to Seniors:
Seniors and their parents are reminded that ALL financial obligations (great and small) must be taken care of before seniors are permitted to participate in graduation exercises, receive graduation gowns, take exams, etc.
At the heart of the St. Francis Catholic High School mission is the commitment to provide a Catholic, college preparatory education to young women of all economic backgrounds. Sending your daughter to St. Francis is a significant financial commitment for many families. We know that the gift of a St. Francis education is a life-changing experience.
St. Francis Catholic High School provides Financial Aid for families who qualify based on a demonstrated financial need. All families are eligible to apply for financial aid since many difference situations are considered. Although total financial need always exceeds our resources, St. Francis helps as many families as possible.
Seniors are responsible for a senior fee of $150. The Senior Graduation Fee represents the cost of the facility rental (Memorial Auditorium), cap and gown and other miscellaneous costs. This fee is not to be confused with any Grad Night Party costs that are determined and collected by the parents on the Grad Night Committee. This fee is due at the time of re-enrollment.
Parent service hours are required each school year. Parents of freshmen, sophomore, and junior students serve 25 hours. Parents of senior students serve 10 hours. Parents with two or more students serve the required number of hours for the youngest daughter. Single parents who are solely responsible for tuition are required to perform 12.5 hours per year in their daughter’s freshman, sophomore and junior years, and 5 hours during their daughter’s senior year.
Failure to serve all hours will result in a mandatory $500 fee to be paid before the student(s) begins the next school year or, in the case of seniors, before receiving graduation documents.
