Late Entrance And/Or Withdrawal Fee
 

If a student enters St. Mary's after the regular academic year begins or withdraws before the year is ended, tuition payments will be prorated according to the dates of entrance and departure. This determination will be made by the President's Office.

 

All students regardless of the time they enter are obligated to pay the $300 registration fee and the $210 Student Body Fee.

 

In order to be admitted to take Mid-Year Examinations in December, and Final Examinations in May, students must be current with FACTS tuition.

 

Mid-Year And Final Examinations
 

In order to be admitted to take Mid-Year Examinations in December, tuition must be current.

 

In order to be admitted to take Final Examinations in May, TEN (10) tuition installments must have been paid.

 

Delinquent Tuition
 

In both December and May, every effort is made to contact parents when tuition is delinquent. Parents are contacted by letter or phone call or both before semester and final exams. It is not the policy of the school to involve students in questions of delinquent tuition, however, if there is no response from parents, the only alternative the school has is to contact the student at school.

 

Families who have not met their financial obligations for a current academic year, will not be permitted to register for the following year unless those obligations are met.

 

Meeting Financial Obligations
 

Parents who refuse to pay tuition and refuse to contact the school to work out some mutually acceptable plan to reduce their indebtedness will be regarded as showing an uncooperative attitude and the school may then exercise its option of not allowing the student to continue.

 

Return Check Fee

 

A $30 returned check fee will be charged for each check or EFT draft returned by the bank. Any account that presents two NSF or EFT checks will be placed on a cash only basis.

 

Late Fees will be assessed in the sum of $25.

 

Financial Aid/Scholarships

 

We at St. Mary's High School understand that a Catholic school education is a gift that leads to a brighter future, and we know that this gift represents a significant investment and commitment for any family. St. Mary's works with families on a confidential, individual basis to ensure that qualified students have the opportunity to attend our school. Financial Aid may be available to those families who show demonstrated need of financial support. This assistance is made to as many students and families as possible, regardless of their ethnic or racial backgrounds.

 

Those applying for Financial Aid and/or Scholarships must complete a FACTS Grant and Aid Application. Financial Aid funds are limited so it is imperative that the application is submitted before the deadline. Scholarship and Grant award amounts will be communicated to applicants by St. Mary's, prior to registration in the Spring.

 

To be considered for financial aid the student must:

 

  • Maintain a 2.0 GPA.

  • Display a cooperative attitude regarding school policy with special emphasis on attendance, dress code, and tardiness.

 

The amount of financial will vary with need. Scholarships financial aid is set by the particular donor.
