Tuition – Financial Aid
Tuition is determined annually, upon recommendation, by the Principal’s Advisory Council. Tuition plans reflect parish involvement/Mass attendance and contain a family plan. In order to be eligible for the Active Catholic Discount, the family must be certified by the pastor of the Catholic parish as active in that parish. Criteria include Mass attendance, financial support and service .

Registration fees for each student are due at re-registration each year in May or when a new student is accepted. Yard duty, Annual Event fees and Facility/Maintenance fees for each family are due at the same time. These fees are non-refundable.
Families with more than one child at St. Rose automatically receive tuition assistance through the multi-child discount. Other assistance is also available through the Baldocchi Scholarship Fund and because of other generous benefactors. Families who request an adjustment at the time of registration or re-registration are required to fill out a form either online or by mail with a financial aid evaluation company. Family participation in school and parish will be a strong consideration. To remain eligible for tuition assistance, financial obligations must be kept current. Families who receive tuition assistance are required to pay tuition and fees through auto pay.
St. Rose contracts with a tuition management company called SMART for the collection of tuition payments. SMART provides secure and convenient online, telephone and mail-in payment plans with choices of payment dates. Returned and late payments are charged late and/or follow up fees. It is necessary for the proper functioning of the school that payments are made in accordance with the family’s tuition contract with the school. Should you have difficulty in meeting your tuition obligation, it is your responsibility to notify the PRINCIPAL/BUSINESS MANAGER so that special arrangements and adjustments to your agreement can be made. This payment plan must be agreed upon by all parties. If your account becomes sixty days or more overdue, we will ask that your child/ren not attend school until the account is current. Tuition must be paid in full by the last day of school in order to keep the student s place for the following school year.
Checks given to the school that cannot be cashed due to insufficient funds will be subject to a $15.00 service fee. If a check is returned from the bank more than three times the family will lose check writing privileges at St. Rose.
Inquiries about tuition and financial responsibilities can be directed to our Business Manager. You can call her direct line, 545-3203, or send a note to the office.
SMART Tuition customer service is available 365 days a year/24 hours per day. 1-888-868-8828
