Tuition Rates - 2019-2020
Our school’s administration, together with the finance committee of our Board of Specified Jurisdiction and our directors at the Office of Catholic Schools, have prepared a budget for the 2019-20 school year which will continue to support the cost of providing high-quality, vital, and faith-filled Catholic education that is affordable.
A unified Pre-K 3/4 morning and full-day program will be available. (Pre-K tuition is not discountable either by multi-child discount or financial assistance.)
3 days per week, morning Pre-K: $3,250 annually
5 days per week, morning Pre-K: $4,050 annually
3 days per week, full day: $4,500 annually
5 days per week, full day: $6,100 annually
1st child = $5,850
2nd child = $5,850 (less $1,750 PFGA 2nd child financial aid) = $9,950 for 2 students
3rd child = $5,850 (less $2,750 PFGA 3rd child financial aid) = $13,050 for 3 students
4th child = $5,850 (less $2,750 PFGA 4th child financial aid) = $16,150 for 4 students

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 Managment website. Your family enrollment fee will be automatically withdrawn upon completion of the form. (Enrollment Fee is discounted by $100 until March 1, 2019)
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 that we charge families does not cover the actual cost of educating each child, we do lots of fundraising throughout the year to make up that gap. Many of our fundraising events are fun and you will want to participate, but one fundraiser is MANDATORY, and that is the Monthly Money Raffle.
Each month from September through April there will be a drawing for money prizes (1st prize = $750; 2nd prize = $200; 3rd prize = $100.) Drawings are done on the third Wednesday of the month and winners will be notified immediately.
Families with any full-day students will be required to purchase 40 raffle tickets at $10 each for a total of a $400 per family in fundraising fee. The tickets can then be re-sold to family members and friends to earn the $400 back.
Families having ONLY ONE half-day Pre-K student will be required to purchase 20 raffle tickets at $10 each for a total of a $200 per family in fundraising fee. The tickets can then be re-sold to family members and friends to earn the $200 back.
Families with either one Pre-K student who comes 3 full-days, or with 2 or more half-day Pre-K students (twins, or a 3 and a 4 year old) will be required to to purchase 40 raffle tickets at $10 each for a total of a $400 per family in fundraising fee. The tickets can then be re-sold to family members and friends to earn the $400 back.
Tickets will be available in the summer for pick up, once the July payment has been processed. Any tickets that haven't been picked up by the beginning of the school year will go into the first week’s 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, 2019 - May, 2020. 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 2018-19 payments in order to officially be
re-enrolled for the 2019-20 year. The final payment of this year will be in May 2018 and this must clear up your 2018-19 account.
PARENT SERVICE HOURS - 20 HOURS
The goal of the parent service hour program 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 or one fo the other founding parish fundraiser. Grandparents are invited to help families complete the commitment, but Virtus training requirements apply to all adults volunteering with children in the school or at a school sponsored event. Families will be billed for any shortfall of their commitment 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.
Limited financial assistance is available for Kindergarten through 8th grade students whose families show demonstrated need. PLEASE VISIT THE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE.
