At Saint John the Evangelist School/Preschool, we believe that Catholic education is a vital ministry of the Church, and it’s our mission to make it accessible to as many students as possible. Our commitment to providing a faith-based education goes hand in hand with the generous support we receive from Saint John Parish.

The operating costs of running our school, which include salaries, supplies, utilities, maintenance, and more, often exceed the tuition fees paid by our families. In recognition of the importance of Catholic education, Saint John Parish provides a substantial subsidy to our school, enabling us to maintain our tuition at its current rate. This means that each Catholic student enrolled with us effectively receives a valuable ‘scholarship’ from Saint John Parish.

This remarkable and unwavering financial commitment to Catholic education is a rarity and a testament to our shared dedication to nurturing the faith and intellect of our students. We are proud to offer a high-quality Catholic education that is not only rooted in tradition but also made accessible to all families who seek it.

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 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 school year must be fully satisfied by June 30.

Tuition is an annual commitment. Upon receipt of the family Tuition Deposit, you are committing to the full tuition for the 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.

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

The Catholic Tuition Rate is offered to families who live within the parish boundaries, are registered members of St. John the Evangelist, and are participating members of the parish community (e.g., supporting parish activities, contributing to its financial needs through the offertory envelope system or Faith Direct, and regularly attending Mass). You can sign up on the Parish website if you want Faith Direct. Participation is vital to our Church’s continued operation and our School’s success. 

Catholic families registered at another parish must provide a letter, updated for each year, from the Pastor attesting to their good standing to receive the Catholic Tuition Rate.
