"A School Rich in Tradition"
Through the school's budgeting processes the finance committee has determined that the cost of educating one child at Sacred Heart School in 2013-2014 will be approximately $5,100 per student. With that figure in mind, we hope that you can see how hard we are working to keep Sacred Heart School affordable for all of our families. Tuition rates for the 2013-2014 school year have been set as follows:
(Sacred Heart, St. Patrick's and St. John's Bahner parishes contribute over $550,000 per year from the collection basket into the school budget. The reasoning behind the extra assessments is that the non-Catholic families and out of county families are not contributing to this parish tithe so the assessment is how the difference is accounted for.)
Tuition incentives for the 2013-14 school year will include a $500 tuition credit for anyone hosting an International Student. This incentive is in effect for tuition only and do not include the tithe expectation or the non-parish / other parish assessments.
Tuition obligations can be significantly reduced through participation in the SCRIP program. Participation in the SCRIP program makes significant savings possible and comes at NO ADDITIONAL COST to parents and families! Please contact Mrs. DeGraff in the main office for more information.
Families benefiting from Catholic parish tuition rates MUST have a stewardship card on file in the rectory office. Families will not be able to enroll for an upcoming year until all obligations have been addressed. The tithing percentages recommended by the Diocese of Jefferson City are 5% of annual household income to the local parish, 1% to the diocese and 4% to the charities of choice.
Methods of Payment
In the attempt to ensure the cash flow necessary to get our bills paid in a timely manner the school board has authorized three potential methods of payment for the 2013-2014 school year and beyond:
1) The entire bill can be paid at the beginning of the school year.
2) The bill can be paid in 2 equal installments with payments due at the beginning of each semester.
3) The tuition bill can be paid monthly through an automatic bank withdraw. Families opting for this payment method would be required to sign up for an automatic monthly withdraw over 10 months from August through May.
You may remember that we made the following challenge in our series of spring presentations last year, "Tuition Freeze for 2013-2014 IF enrollment stays at 400 or higher as determined at beginning of 4th qtr. 2012-2013 school year!"
Unfortunately, the school was not able to meet that challenge as our enrollment in grades K-12 currently stands at 376.
