The school’s operating costs (salaries, supplies, utilities, maintenance, etc.) are more than the tuition paid. Since Catholic education is an important ministry of the Church, Saint John Parish provides a generous subsidy to the school, allowing tuition to be set at its current rate. In effect, each Catholic student receives a “scholarship” from Saint John Parish. This remarkable and sustained financial commitment to Catholic education is rare and allows as many students as possible to attain a Catholic education.

A family seeking tuition assistance for the coming school year must complete a Grant and Aid Application available online.

Tuition is paid through FACTS Tuition Management Program on a monthly payment plan over a ten or eleven-month period, beginning in July, unless a family opts to pay in full. Additional fees that are personal in nature (i.e., Chromebook, extended day, sacrament fees, field trip, forgotten lunch, etc.) will be billed separately. All tuition and fees for the 2023-2024 school year must be fully satisfied by June 30, 2023.

Saint John the Evangelist provides a tuition discount for those families who are active registered parishioners at Saint John the Evangelist Parish or another local Catholic parish. To receive a discount, families must be participating in the diocesan monthly offertory envelope program and have an assigned parish number or Faith Direct with an assigned parish number. Without these in place, we do not have any way to track your family’s participation, even if you place cash in the offertory basket. If you want Faith Direct, you can sign up on the Parish website. Participation is vital to the continued operation of our Church and to the success of our School.

Tuition Policy

The parish Finance Committee sets the tuition for the following school year each year. FACTS Tuition Management Program collects tuition for the school. You will select your tuition payment plan when completing the enrollment application. Several payment plans are available. Please check your FACTS information for accuracy, and contact the parish Finance Manager with any discrepancies. The Finance Manager can be reached at 540-347-2922 ext. 204.

Tuition is paid through FACTS on a monthly payment plan over a ten or eleven-month period, beginning in July of 2023, unless a family opts to pay in full.

Tuition is an annual commitment. Upon receipt of the family Tuition Deposit, you are committing to the full tuition for the 2023-2024 school year. When a family commits to registering at Saint John the Evangelist School, the family will be financially obligated to pay for the entire school year. If a withdrawal is requested by the family, the balance will be due at the time of withdrawal unless payment plans are in place. Refunds are not approved for vacation or inclement weather days.

If a financial crisis such as unemployment prevents making regular tuition payments, a family is asked to contact the finance office promptly. Finance and school administration will do our best to assist to the fullest extent possible.

All tuition and any school billing (Extended Day, Field Trip, Forgotten Lunches, etc.) for the 2022-2023 school year must be fully satisfied by June 30, 2023.
