FACTS Tuition Management We use FACTS as our tuition payment system. To create an account please follow the link

St. Apollinaris Catholic School strives to keep tuition affordable. St. A’s provides two tuition plans: Cost-Based Tuition and Active Catholic Parishioner Tuition. Cost-Based tuition for each student is $9,750. Active Catholic Parishioner/Multi-Child discounts are given to support our Catholic families. The cost difference between these plans is partially subsidized by MERCY fundraising/participation obligations/SCRIP.

The purpose in obtaining the Active Catholic Parishioner Tuition discount is that families are encouraged to make St. Apollinaris Cathlic Church their spiritual home, and for their child(ren) to complete their Catholic education with the spiritual formation that will be the foundation for their lives.

Active Catholic Parish Families are those families who:

  1. At least one parent is baptized Catholic
  2. Student is baptized in the Catholic faith
  3. Family is registered at St. Apollinaris Catholic Church
  4. Family attends Mass at St. Apollinaris Catholic Church regularly
  5. Family supports St. Apollinaris Cathlic Church by depositing contribution envelopes into the offertory at Mass
  6. Family contributes time and talent to the Church

Catholic families who do not maintain active participation in the Church, will receive notification and changed to Cost-Based Tuition.

Scrip is a fundraiser for the school and helps subsidize the difference between the actual cost and tuition paid.

Parent Participation Requirement

By registering your child(ren) at St. A’s you become part of a community, in close relationship with the school. Each family is required to donate 30 hours of volunteering in the St. A’s school community. Five of your volunteer hours must be completed with one of the 3 main MERCY fundraisers. Those fundraisers are the Walk-aThon, Crab Feed, and Annual Gala. Families who choose to buy-out their Parent Participation Requirement will be billed $700 at registration for 25 of the hours. Five hours must be worked at one of the above fundraisers and may not be bought out. Families who do not complete these 5 hours will be billed and additional $500.
