TUITION AND FINANCIAL AID 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.
