Tuition

Welcome

About tuition:

Because today’s children need a consistent philosophy of life presented to them at home, in the Church and at school, St. Martin of Tours School’s teachers and staff are dedicated professionals committed to work with the minds and hearts of children teaching them to think, learn and live from a Catholic worldview. Therefore, we believe that when you invest in the education of your children, you are investing in their future. A Catholic education is an advantage for life.

PART ONE
Registration Fees

These fees cover the basic start-up cost for the school year and are paid annually. Registration fees are non-refundable. The Registration Fee for the 2014-15 school year is $615.

PART TWO
Tuition Rates

St. Martin of Tours School has adopted the SMART Tuition Management Program for tuition collection.   The SMART enrollment form was sent to you during the summer.  There are various options available to you to make tuition payments.  If you pay in full, before August 15, directly to the school bookkeeper, you do not need to complete the SMART enrollment form.  Otherwise, all families must enroll with SMART Tuition.

The cost of the program is $ 45.00 per year, per family.  This amount will be added to your tuition unless you make payment in full by August 15.

In accordance with school policy, a late payment will result in a charge of $30.00 which will be assessed to your account if any payment is not received within 10 days from the payment due date.

All families, except those that will make payment in advance, are required to participate in the SMART program. All SMART tuition accounts must be set up as automatic deductions from your banking or credit card accounts. Questions about the SMART program can be directed to us or to SMART at 1-800-SMART-03.  Delinquent tuition accounts will be sent to collection.

The yearly school tuition per family is as follows:

Support of Parish

Each child grades K-8                    $8,700

St. Martin of Tours is a Catholic parish school; therefore there is a discounted rate for the children of parishioners.  Parishioners are registered members of this parish who actively participate in weekly Sunday Mass, involve themselves in the activities of the parish by attending functions, volunteer for committees or events, take an active part in parish groups, and contribute a minimum of $1,000 per year.  At least one adult and child mush be Roman Catholic to qualify for the “support of parish” tuition rate.  Families who wish to receive the “support of parish” tuition rate must pay in full or enroll in the electronic transfer program by August 15.

Non-Support of Parish

Each child grades K-8                                $11,000

Fees per student paid once a year are $550 for students in grades K-8.  These fees cover the cost of the following:  Student insurance, yearbook, Mothers’ Club dues, books and classroom supplies.

PART THREE
Financial Aid

In order to be considered for financial aid, families needing assistance must complete an application with SMART Tuition by August 15.  Based on the financial information you provide, SMART Tuition provides the school an estimated amount that your family can contribute to educational expenses. This helps our school make fair and objective financial aid decisions. Financial aid is available on the basis of demonstrated need.  All aid is provided on an annually renewable basis.  You must complete a financial aid application each year that you request aid.  Please make sure your application is received by August 15 because there is a limited amount of money available for scholarships each year and priority will be given to families who have met this deadline.
