Tuition Policy

Every family is expected to pay tuition of (amount to be set annually by St. Joseph’s Parish Council with recommendations from the Board of Education and Finance).   This tuition is to be paid over a 10-month period from July through April.  Payments are to be made no later than the 15th of the month.  Each family is expected to make 10 equal payments or the equivalent to satisfy the tuition requirement.   Electronic transfer of funds is available.

Online Tuition Payments - FACTS ManagementBeginning with the 2014-2015 school year, Saint Joseph Parish partnered with FACTS Management to manage our tuition payment program.  FACTS is used by 7,000 school nationally.  Locally Bishop Brossart and Newport Central Catholic and many other schools in our Diocese use FACTS Management.  Every Saint Joseph School family is expected to be enrolled in FACTS for tuition payments before June 1 of the current year.

Families will be sent a monthly statement on the 1st of each month (July – April). Families that are one (1) month or more behind on their tuition during the current fiscal year, or have a balance from the previous fiscal year, will have their child(ren)’s report card(s) withheld until payment is made.  Families that are three (3) months or more behind on their tuition during the current and/or previous school year, will be notified that as of (a specific date) their child(ren) will not be admitted to St. Joseph School. Immediately following April 15th, a written notice will be sent to all families with a balance due.  Families with a balance due as of July 1st will be notified, by letter, that their child(ren) will not be admitted to St Joseph School for the next year.

The permanent records of a student exiting St. Joseph at any time for any reason will not be forwarded to the new school until all financial obligations have been satisfied.

The Board does not wish to exclude any child from St. Joseph School for financial reasons.  If a need arises, the family is to contact the Pastor to review the circumstances and arrive at a tuition payment representative of the family’s financial condition.  Final decisions in this regard are granted by the Pastor.
