Tuition payments may be paid in full, biannually or monthly. Monthly payments can be made by mail or through a personal banking account direct debit program.


Tuition Assistance


Tuition assistance for qualifying families is made possible by the generosity of St. Mary Parishioners.  In order to be good stewards of those funds, the parish and school have developed guidelines to determine eligibility and to award tuition assistance.


As part of the tuition assistance process, St. Mary Parish and School partner with a company called Private School Aid Service (PSAS).  PSAS provides tuition assistance recommendations through a comprehensive financial aid eligibility and evaluation process using families’ previous year tax returns.
