As a Catholic school whose goal is to never let cost stand in the way of giving your children a solid spiritual and educational foundation, our tuition has been kept to a level which is manageable for most families. However, the tuition (and fees) that we are able to charge does NOT cover all of the costs necessary to educate our students. The balance is made up through many different types of fundraisers, most of which are fun and engaging, and people like to do them. One of our fundraisers, our Monthly Money Raffle, is mandatory, but the others are not. We HOPE that our families and their friends will come and support our school because this funding goes directly into our operating budget to cover important costs like facilities upkeep and improvements, educational materials and technology, and ongoing improvements.
Please support our fundraisers in any way possible, and help us to spread the word so that we can gain all-important support from outside of our school families. Please click the red links below to find out more about each of these fundraisers, how you can help or participate, and who to contact to offer your assistance!

Families are required to purchase $400 (40 tickets of $10) in fundraising raffle tickets and cash prizes will be awarded through monthly drawings (8 total) during the school year. For families with only a half-day Pre-K student enrolled at PFGA, the mandatory annual fundraising is $200 in raffle tickets (20 tickets at $10 each.) As the July FACTS bills will include the family's total payment for raffle tickets, each family may then keep monies from the raffle tickets sold to friends and family.
Raffle drawings will be held on the third Thursday of the Month at Parents' Club meetings between September, 2017 and April, 2018.
