Tuition

We believe it is important that families understand the actual cost associated with Catholic education. We publish our budget summary annually to familiarize our families with the expenses of the school.

The St. Thomas tuition program is a stewardship program. Stewardship is a Gospel teaching where each individual must offer time, talent, and treasure as a part of life in God's family. At St. Thomas, our parents determine what they can faithfully offer in time, talent, and treasure toward the full cost of educating their children.

As our school continues to grow, we recognize the need to have all families practice stewardship through tuition and service. For our part, we continue to explore opportunities which help keep tuition costs affordable for all families.

A generous financial aid program provides families who apply for aid the opportunity to participate in Catholic education according to their means. We work with each family to ensure that no one is denied admission to St. Thomas based upon financial need.

The actual per student cost of an education at St. Thomas the Apostle School is $6,400.  Because of the financial support of  our Parish community and the efforts of our Development Committee, we are able to provide each student with a $1,500 scholarship, keeping tuition affordable for all.
