Catholic Education is the BEST INVESTMENT we can make in the future of our children.
We welcome the opportunity to include children of immigrant and minority families into our school community because we are in truth all brothers and sisters in the Lord. Also, we have something special to offer: Latino and African-American children who attend Catholic schools go to college at a 42% higher rate and show a smaller achievement gap. If you have questions or unique considerations for your child, please contact us.
By investing in Catholic education, we provide our children with an academically-excellent, character-building, faith-focused education that simply cannot be matched in other academic environments. Frassati Catholic Academy equips students with a foundation that continues to influence them well beyond their preschool and grade school years.
Graduates of Catholic schools become the virtuous leaders of tomorrow—leaders who seek greatness, show mercy, serve others, and walk humbly with God. What a valuable gift we can pass on to our children!
The biggest question families have during their search for the right school is, “Can we afford it?” We believe the cost of tuition should not prevent families from experiencing a world-class Catholic education. If you want to invest in your child’s future through Catholic education, let’s find a way to make it a financially-feasible option.
Our variable tuition model is a blend of charity and justice based on real costs. It opens the door to ensure that higher-income families are not asked to pay more than the true cost to educate, middle-income families who cannot afford the full-rate tuition can receive assistance, and lower-income families can feasibly afford admittance.
Eligibility is determined through an application process that takes into account a family’s expenses and income as verified by tax information. There is a small application fee.
You will need to submit, confidentially and securely, supporting documentation for your income and expenses. In most cases, this is your federal income tax return (IRS 1040 form) and W-2 form(s). Verification for extraordinary expenses could include mortgage or rent statements, a Catholic high school tuition statement and daycare or medical receipts.
Families who do not wish to disclose financial resources or do not wish to seek financial aid can choose to pay our school’s full tuition, which will be close to the actual cost to educate.
Yes, you need to be an affiliated Catholic. The signed parish affiliation form signed by your pastor is required to receive a variable tuition rate.
Under the variable tuition model, Frassati Catholic Academy will offer families a total tuition obligation for all of their children enrolled in the school, and this is what the family will be expected to pay. When the school offers a tuition obligation below the cost to educate, families must partner in the responsibility of making up this funding gap with our school. This means that the family may be responsible for applying for financial aid from scholarship organizations such as ACE or Schmitz Scholarships. Outside scholarships may be considered in the tuition obligation calculation when the family is eligible. Those awards will help close the funding gap, but not further lower a family’s tuition obligation. The school business manager and principal will work closely with families to direct them to appropriate financial aid organizations that match their financial picture.
Tuition can be paid in full, or in 10 or 11 monthly payments. Payments are automatically drafted from your bank account by FACTS Management Company.
