Frequently asked questions
Private schools are funded and supported through tuition, fund-raising, endowment and grants. Each school is responsible for the total cost of education. Therefore, each family who chooses Catholic education should consider the payment of tuition a responsibility and a priority.
Tuition is determined each year by the St. Benedict Catholic School Board of Trustees based on the projected per pupil cost and the amount of financial support from both Our Lady of Lourdes and Little Flower parishes. To be eligible for sponsorship from the parishes, families must be registered and make a commitment to worship regularly with the parish community and to contribute time, talent and treasure in support of the life of the parish. Families who are not registered members of either parish will be charged a tuition rate that is more closely aligned with the full per pupil cost. Each parish determines its policies for financial assistance. Parents should contact the school principal for information related to other resources of assistance.
