Tuition

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 cost to educate a single child in K-8th Grade at St. Teresa of Calcutta approximates $6,300 per school year. This equates to just $35 per day per student.

Tuition and parish subsidies alone 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 2021-2022 school year.  To put these tuition rates into perspective, the financial commitment per day for tuition for one student is only $10, or less than $14 a day if you only count the 180 school days that we are in session.

Tuition Plan for Grades K-8 Tuition for 1st Child Tuition for 2nd Child Tuition of 3rd  Child Tuition of 4th  Child Tuition of 5th Child
Catholic Rate (Actively Attending Parish within our Deanery) $3,700 $3,600 $3,500 $1,750 $1,750
NON Catholic Rate (Non active member of a Deanery Parish or out of state) $5,200 $5,200 $5,200 $5,200 $5,200
Tuition Plan for Pre-Kindergarten Tuition for Each Child
Pre-K: 5 Full days $4,000
Pre-K: 3 Full days $3,000
Pre-K: 2 Half days $1,700

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.

Tuition assistance is available to qualified families. Please contact Mrs. Guy or review our financial assistance page for more information.
