Fees and Family Commitments to Our School

ENROLLMENT FEE - $200 per Family

This enrollment season, all families will complete their enrollment  online through the FACTS Mgmt. website.  Your family enrollment fee  will be automatically withdrawn upon completion of the form.  UNTIL MARCH 1, 2018 THE ENROLLMENT FEE WILL BE REDUCED BY 1/2 TO $100.  


FACTS ADMINISTRATIVE FEE - $45
The annual FACTS administrative fee  will be taken in the month of June for all families enrolled by that point.  For new enrollments after June, the FACTS fee will be taken 1-2 weeks after the FACTS enrollment is complete.
 

CURRICULUM RESOURCE FEE - $250 per Student K-8th; $125 for Pre-K student

This fee is non-refundable and will be billed in July.

A significant outlay for curricular materials, including books, electronic resources, etc. is made year to year to support much of our curriculum. In the coming year and all subsequent years, there will be a continued investment in these types of important resources materials. 

 

MANDATORY FUNDRAISING (RAFFLE) - $400 PER FAMILY (OR $200 for FAMILIES WITH ONLY one 1/2 DAY STUDENT.)*

This fee is non-refundable and will be billed in July.

As the tuition we charge does not cover the actual cost of educating each child, we do lots of fundraising throughout the year. Many events are fun and you will want to participate, but only one fundraiser is MANDATORY, and that is the Monthly Money Raffle.  

Each month from October through April there will be a drawing for money prizes (1st prize = $750; 2nd prize = $200; 3rd prize = $100.) Drawings are normally done at the Parent Club Meetings on the 3rd Thursday of the month. 

Families with any full-day students will be required to purchase (or sell) 40 raffle tickets at $10 each for a total of $400 per family in fundraising. 

For families having ONLY ONE half-day Pre-K student, the mandatory fundraising is $200 in raffle tickets (20 tickets at $10 each.)

Families with only one Pre-K student who comes 3 full-days, as well as families with 2 or more half-day Pre-K students (twins, or a 3 and a 4 year old) will be required to sell 40 tickets.  

Tickets will be available in the summer for pick up.  Any tickets that haven't been picked up by the beginning of the school year will go into the first Thursday Folders. Sales may begin immediately once you receive your tickets. Once the July payment is made and tickets are distributed, each family may keep monies from the raffle tickets they sell to friends and family.  Some people have chosen to not sell their tickets but to use them for their own chance to win. 
 

* PLEASE NOTE REGARDING BILLING:

  • All TUITION payments will be made over 10 months, August, 2018 - May, 2019.  If you receive Caritas or any other financial assistance, this will be reflected in the amount you pay each month.
  • THE JULY payment will ONLY include your Resource Fees and Raffle Tickets. 
  • There is no June payment, unless you have a service hours payment.
  • Families must be current in their 2017-18 payments in order to officially be
    re-enrolled for the 2017-18 year. The final payment of the year will be in May and this must clear up your 2017-18 account. 
     

PARENT SERVICE CHALLENGE - 20 HOURS

The goal of the parent service challenge is to encourage a spirit of shared commitment among all families for the benefit of the school, students, and community of Pope Francis Global Academy, so we anticipate 100% participation.

Each family is required to complete 20 hours of service between April 1st of the current school year and March 31st of the following year.  At least five of the hours must be from work on either the Haunted House, Howl at the Moon or the Walk-a-thon.  Up to 5 hours may be logged working on the St. Pascal Carnival.  Families will be billed for any shortage at the rate of $15 per hour on their April FACTS invoice.  

It is the parent’s responsibility to check the website and Howler regularly, and check with classroom teachers, to find volunteer projects to work on.

It is also the parent's responsibility to log all service hours on the on-line form found on the Parent Information Page of the school website.  LOG HOURS HERE.
