Holy Cross Academy Tuition Policy 2023-2024
The following are the tuition rates and fees for the 2023-2024 School Year.
Tuition is paid in full or on a monthly payment plan over a ten-month period, beginning August 2023 through FACTS Management Company.
For families re-enrolling, the non-refundable Registration Fee will be charged to your FACTS account on April 3, 2023.
In the event of a financial crisis, such as unemployment or serious health concern, which prevents making regular tuition payments, a family must contact the Pastor/Principal promptly.
A family seeking tuition assistance for the coming school year must complete a Tuition Assistance Application available online at https://online.factsmgt.com/Signin.aspx. This application is due to FACTS Tuition Aid by March 15, 2023. This information, plus a review of the family's service to the parish and the funding available, will be used to make a fair decision concerning tuition reduction.
Parishioner Tuition Policy is available on our school website under Tuition and Fees. Those who register after November 30th of the year prior to the school year child begins school at Holy Cross Academy will be considered as Catholics from other parishes for that school year. In Parish status will be given for the following year when a completed Parishioner Registration and Confirmation form is submitted to Holy Cross Academy. Parishioner status cannot be changed mid-year. An exception to this policy will be given to those who move from other areas to inside the boundaries of Saint Mary parish. These persons will be given parishioner status if they present a letter that states that they were registered and actively involved in their former parish. If not, the above regulations will apply.
Participation required in annual PTO Fundraiser --families sell 2 cases of World's Finest Chocolate per family.
