Testimonial from SJRCS Alumni Parents Chris and Troy Ireland
“We can never share the depth of gratitude that we feel towards SJRCS. Arden was chosen as a Sancta Crux Scholar at Academy of the Holy Cross. She was also awarded the merit based, Tartan Scholarship. After presenting a sample of her work and an essay, we found out just today that the Fine Arts Scholarship did come through for her as well! She could not be happier. We could not be happier for her.
She didn't arrive here alone, we are indebted to SJRCS for doing all that you do and doing it so well. It is definitely God's work to help these kids find their place in life. The love that is evident at school is palpable. You could not have given this girl a more stable foundation on which to build her academic career, and really her life. We are overwhelmed with excitement and abundant gratitude. None of us could have done any better by her. Thank you for contributing to her journey and helping her get exactly where she wants to be."

Why is there a different tuition rate for a family of another faith?
All registered Catholic parishioners regularly give a financial offering to their parish through the weekly collection. This monetary contribution is used to cover various maintenance costs for the parish and school facilities including offsetting the cost to educate all students. It is acknowledged that while these families pay a lower annual tuition rate they are offering financial contributions to the parish collection which also benefits the school.
Why should I give to the parish offertory when my child is already enrolled in St. John Regional Catholic School?
Our parishioners’ financial support is essential to fund and staff our programs. The reason to give is to make an investment in the movement of the kingdom of God in our community. The stewardship commitment of our parishioners is an investment in the work God is doing. This investment creates the opportunity for children in the parish to attend an academically excellent school. Our regional pastors serve the students in the school as spiritual leaders throughout the year, not just on the weekends.
