Saint Catherine of Siena School works hard to keep Catholic education affordable. Our dedicated faculty and staff provide a warm and welcoming environment fostering a quality educational experience unmatched by its competition. Their commitment, along with our tireless parent volunteers, keep our prices lower than other neighboring private schools. Tuition rates are approved by the Pastor after consultation with the School Advisory Board and the Parish Finance Council in February for the following school year. Once the final rates are determined, parents/guardians must choose a payment option.
A $150 non-refundable deposit/child is required along with a $125 non-refundable application fee. All Saint Catherine School families also have a $500 volunteer obligation. Information regarding this responsibility will be included with your acceptance materials.
