TUITION POLICY 2017-2018

A Contributing Parishioner is a registered family who practices their faith by participating in the life of the Church on a regular basis, and who regularly and consistently uses Church envelopes, contributing at least $15 a week or $780 per calendar year (excluding special collections). Your contributions are based on the Church Fiscal Year (July 1st through June 30th).  Tuition rates are reduced for contributing parishioners because you are participating in parish activities and contributing to the financial support of your Church and School.  Families who are not using church envelopes will be required to pay non-contributing parishioner rates, or the full cost of educating a child in Holy Family School, and will automatically receive a non-contributing tuition rate.

Tuition Processing

The School is contracted with Smart Tuition to receive, process and deposit all tuition payments. All families are required to register with Smart Tuition.  All families must sign an enrollment form (tuition contract) each year. Families must comply with this tuition contract.

Payment Plan Options

A.   1 payment in full – must be paid by July due date. A 3% prepayment discount is applied.

B.   11 payments – starting in July and ending in May

Payment Due Dates

Each family has the option of paying on the 5th, 10th or 20th of each month. Payments are due on this date and considered late if not received on this date. There are no grace periods.

Methods of Payments

All tuition and fees must be paid via an automated direct debit from a checking or savings account, or a credit card.  If a credit card is used as a form of payment, a convenience charge of 2.65% will apply.

Fees

Failed ACH fee: $30.00 per incident – charged by Smart Tuition.
Late Fee: $35.00 per month for each month there is a delinquent balance.

Delinquency

All tuition payments must be made on a timely basis. If an account becomes two months delinquent, the family will be permanently removed from the School enrollment. However, at the discretion of the Administration, if tuition is brought up-to-date, the family may remain enrolled at the School providing all future financial obligations are paid on time. The Administration also reserves the right to require the family prepay the total tuition balance to remain on the School enrollment.

All financial obligations must be up-to-date in order to re-register for the following year.

All financial obligations must be paid in full by June 1 in order to return the following year.

All financial obligations must be up-to-date in order for students to participate in year-end class trips, socials and ceremonies, including graduation ceremonies. The Administration also reserves the right to withhold report cards and other school records for nonpayment of tuition and fees.

Refunds

All school related fees, including but not limited to, registration fees, lunch program fees, technology fees, and graduation fees are non-refundable. NO exceptions.

Tuition is generally non-refundable. However, if the decision to remove the student from the School enrollment is made by the Administration, a partial refund may be refunded at the discretion of the Administration, on a case-by case basis. Such reasons may include medical, academic or psychological issues that could compromise the education and welfare of any student.

If the decision to leave the School is made by the family, tuition is non-refundable.

Tuition Assistance and Defrayal

Several options are available to assist families with tuition costs:

  • Parish subsidy – available to contributing parishioners only
  • SCRIP program (tuition rebates) – available to ALL families
  • Scholarship programs such as BLOCS (Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools) and Bridge Foundation – available to residents of Pennsylvania who meet eligibility requirements

For cases of severe financial hardship, assistance may be provided by the family’s parish. However, the family must have exhausted all of the above options before requesting assistance from the Pastor.
