Fees and Family Commitments to Our School
If you have not yet received a letter of acceptance, please do not complete enrollment on-line.
ENROLLMENT FEE - $200 per Family
This enrollment season, all families will complete their enrollment forms on-line through their FACTS account and the registration fee will be automatically withdrawn upon completion of the form.
Instructions on how to enroll can be found here. If you do not yet have a FACTS account, you will need to create one. GET STARTED.
CURRICULUM RESOURCE FEE - $250 per Student K-8th*
A significant outlay for new curricular materials, including books and resources is made year to year to support much of our new curriculum. In the coming year and all subsequent years, there will be a continued investment in these types of important resources materials. This fee is non-refundable.
MANDATORY FUNDRAISING/RAFFLE - $400 PER FAMILY (OR $200 PER FAMILIES WITH ONLY 1/2 DAY STUDENTS.)*
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 half-day Pre-K students, the mandatory fundraising is $200 in raffle tickets (20 tickets at $10 each.)
Tickets for current families have gone home with students, and will be sent to newly enrolled families by July 1 and 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, 2017 - May, 2018. 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 Curriculum Fees and Raffle Tickets.
- There is no June payment, unless you have a service hours payment.
- Families must be current in their 2016-17 payments in order to officially be
re-enrolled for the 2017-18 year.
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.
