FAQ'S REGARDING AFFORDABILITY
Is financial assistance available?
Financial assistance is available through the Frederick County Parish Tuition Assistance Fund, Friends of Catholic Education Scholarships, Walser Foundation, James & Marian McSherry Endowment Scholarship, the Eliot Kelly Scholarship, and SJRCS.
SJRCS Grants & Scholarships are awarded to students based on merit and financial need. In order to apply for a grant or scholarship you must apply through FACTS.
Why do I have to pay a registration fee?
The registration fee ensures a spot for your child in the upcoming school year. Budgeting and plans can be made for class resources and curricular activities once the class sizes have been determined.
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.
