Tuition Policy
I. Tuition and any applicable fees are due and payable on or before July 1, 2018.
II. If you would like to be considered for either the 3 installment plan or the 9 installment plan, you must submit a credit application.
III. The tuition payment plans for those awarded credit are as follows (All fees are still due on 7/1/2018):
  • Three equal tuition payments due 7/1/2018, 10/1/2018, 1/1/2019.
  • Nine equal tuition payments due on the first day of each month July, 2018 through March, 2019.

IV. Both payment plans include interest at the rate of 7.5% per annum.

If you would like to apply for consideration in the first round of the Archdiocesan scholarship fund, please complete the FACTS application found here by Friday, February 9, 2018. You will also be applying for the St. Catherine's Montessori Scholarship Fund automatically. To apply for the St. Catherine's Scholarship Fund only, complete the FACTS application by Friday, March 23, 2018.

Tuition is payable by personal check, cashier’s check, money order or bank draft. Tuition may be paid by credit or debit card; however, a processing fee of 3% will be charged on the transaction. Returned checks will incur a $35 fee. When two checks are returned marked as insufficient funds, future payments will be required to be made by money order.

V. Tuition unpaid by the tenth day of the month in which it is due is considered delinquent and collection procedures will be pursued. Late payments will affect the ability to finance tuition in the future. If tuition becomes 90 days or more delinquent the financing arrangement is considered breached and the balance of the school year’s tuition will become due and payable immediately.

VI. Families with more than one child enrolled in the school will receive a tuition discount of 10% for each younger sibling.

VII. No school records or teacher recommendations/evaluations will be forwarded to other schools until all past due tuition amounts have been paid in full.

VIII. All exceptions to the tuition payment policy must be approved by the Head of School.
