Financial Obligation and
It is imperative that all tuition payments are
kept current. If, for some reason, a financial difficulty is
encountered, it is important that you contact the office to
arrange an appointment so that a plan for payment can be
arranged. St. Mary's is committed to working with parents to
help finance each student's
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.
All financial obligations to the school such as
tuition and fees must be kept current. Students whose accounts
become more than 30 days delinquent will be placed on the
financial ineligibility list. Students on the financial
ineligibility list cannot: begin attending classes in August;
sit for semester exams or participate in co-curricular
activities, to include, but not limited to: athletics; ASB
government; field trips, club activities; dances (including
winter formal & prom); spirit leading; plays and musicals;
speech; and/or senior trip.
Meeting Financial Obligations
Parents are asked and expected to honor their
financial obligation to St. Mary's High School through the
timely payment of tuition and fees. However, when St. Mary's
families experience severe financial situations, parents should
contact Mrs. Chris Martin by phone or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the case where parents have a serious change
in their financial situation, St. Mary's High School Financial
Assistance Committee and the president will discuss the
possibility of adjustments in scheduled tuition payments. No
student will be asked to leave St. Mary's High School soley on
the basis of his inability to pay full tuition.
If no alternative arrangement for payment is made
and authorized by the St. Mary's High School president and the
committee, or a student's tuition account becomes past due, the
student may be subject to suspension from classes or given a
recommended transfer. No student may take semester examinations
until all financial obligations to the school have been
satisfactorily addressed as defined by the St. Mary's High
The parties financially responsible for accounts
with past due balances will be contacted by the business office
and or the tuition billing service.
Delinquent accounts will be placed with an
outside collection agency and legal remedies pursued. An
acceptable written payment plan between the financially
responsible party and the School may be made at the sole
discretion of the school.
If the account continues to be delinquent the
school reserves the right to refuse continuing enrollment for
the remainder of the school year.
Late Entrance and/or
If a student enters St. Mary's after the regular
academic year begins or withdraws before the year is ended,
tuition payments will be current through the end of the month.
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 $225.00 Student Body Fee.
Mid-Year And Final
In order to be admitted to take Mid-Year
Examinations in December, and Final Examinations in May,
students must be current with FACTS 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.
The president may use his discretion in awarding additional
grants in cases where the extreme financial problems of a family
jeopardize a students' continued attendance at St. Mary's High
School. In these cases, the parents will be asked to complete
the FACTS Grant & Aid assessment even if it is past the normal
deadline for applying
Return Check fee
A $30 non-sufficient funds fee will be charged for each check
or EFT draft returned by the bank.
A $25 late feee will be assessed for all late payments.
