+Dear Parents and Guardians,
I can now tell you that tuition has been set for the upcoming school year. Remember, please, that it is based on the number of children attending the school and the staff required to give them the best possible education. As always, we have three separate categories: In or Contributing Parish, Non-contributing or Out of Parish and Non-Catholic. Those families who attend and support St. Raymond Church and our neighboring parishes (upon verification of your support and attendance) with contributions of at least $500 a year are considered “In (Contributing) Parish” for tuition. Please understand that the $500 in parish support is calculated over the previous calendar year. This year it is based on your 2015 contributions. Failure to meet that amount would automatically place you in an “Out of Parish” tuition rate. All other are either “Out of Parish” or “Non-Catholic”. The rates for 2016-2017 are:
K-8 In Parish Out of Parish Non-Catholic
One Child $5350 $7150 $8650
Two Children $8000 $10,800 $13,950
Three Children $9550 $13,450 $19,450
Four or more $11,000
Pre-K 5 day AM only $4900
Pre-K Full day $6200
We are again partnered with FACT Tuition Management Company. New families can register your tuition plan on the website https://online.factsmgt.com. Existing families are automatically rolled over for the new school year. The process is simple and self-explanatory, so please create your account on their website for the 2016-2017 school year. There are ten payments; the first payment due in August with the final one due in May.
Payment Dates: You may choose either the 5th or the 20th of each month as your payment date. Automatic payments can be made from a checking or savings account. You may also remit payments by check or money order directly to FACT. Please note that we are no longer able to accept credit cards for tuition payments.
Convenience & Security: Along with multiple payment plan options, your payments are processed securely through a bank or bank transaction.
Peace of Mind Insurance: FACTS offers this optional benefit for only $14 per year per family. In the event of death of the Responsible Party or spouse, the remaining tuition balance owed for the current school year is paid to the school.
Consumer Account: You may check your personal account or make payments on line from the convenience of your home or office anytime.
Thank you so much for your continued loyalty and support for St. Raymond School. We depend on your support in our efforts to provide the highest quality of education for your children. Your continued support and cooperation is appreciated, as we remain committed to our mission.
In Mary’s Immaculate Heart, I am
