Tuition and Fees

Tuition and Fees

Our tuition goals strive to make a Catholic education affordable to our families and students, offering a trusting community relationship between the school and our families. All students at Saint John Paul II Catholic Academy receive an upfront financial discount since our tuition and fee billings do not cover the full cost of educating each student. Your active participation in the life of the Academy, fundraising efforts and support for our many school events, along with our benefactors help to provide for the differential. Our payment policies, along with our annual fundraising efforts, benefit all of the students by increasing our ability to provide a quality education experience in a Christian environment. Below, please see the tuition rates for the school year. The Academy’s effective operation is dependent on families making all of their required tuition payments per stated tuition policies.
