Financial Policies

 

The student body will register for classes for the following school year some time in the spring on dates to be announced by the Administration.

 

The Registration Fee of $300 must be paid for each student before that student will be scheduled for classes. This is a NONREFUNDABLE FEE. 

 

The St. Mary's Board of Directors determines tuition and fees for St. Mary's High School with consultation from the administrators in late January each year.

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 by e-mail

 

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 School president.

 

Emergency Grants

 

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.

 

Late fee

 

A $25 late feee will be assessed for all late payments.

 

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 comittment 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.
