As a non-public school, we must operate on a balanced budget and DO NOT receive any funds from the state government except for non-religious textbooks and Title II funds for items such as professional development. The funds STC receives do not cover 100% of the costs of these items.
The cost to educate a single child in Kindergarten-8th Grade at St. Teresa of Calcutta Catholic School is approximately $8,000 per school year.
Tuition and parish subsidies from supporting parishes do not cover the cost of educating each child. There is a significant need for fundraising dollars, donations and gifts, as well as volunteer hours, to cover the short-fall and keep tuition as affordable as possible.
The School Advisory Board and School Administration have approved the tuition rates noted below for the 2023-2024 school year.
|Tuition Plan for Grades K-8||Tuition for 1st Child||Tuition for 2nd Child||Tuition for 3rd Child||Tuition for 4th Child||Tuition for 5th Child|
|Catholic Rate (Actively Attending Parish within our Deanery)||$3,900||$3,850||$3,800||$1,900||$1,900|
|NON Catholic Rate (Non active member of a Deanery Parish or out of state)||$5,500||$5,500||$5,500||$5,500||$5,500|
|Tuition Plan for Pre-Kindergarten||Tuition for Each Child|
|Pre-K: 5 Full days||$4,200|
|Pre-K: 3 Full days||$3,200|
|Pre-K: 2 Half days||$1,900|
Multiple child discounts are not awarded to Pre-K students because the Pre-K program must be self-sustaining, i.e. the tuition received covers 100% of the personnel and supply expenses, with no expectation of other revenues to balance the budget.
