New Families – Enrollment is completed online through TADS, our online tuition management program. You will be asked to set up a family account to proceed with registration. A $150 registration fee per child ($300 max per family) will be charged to secure your spot. Once tuition rates are set, families will be asked to sign a tuition agreement with payments generally beginning in June, prior to the school year start.
Current Families – Students auto-enroll each school year until they graduate. We call this process “continuous enrollment.” All students in grades K-7 will automatically be enrolled for the next school year unless a family notifies the school in writing by January 25th that they are not returning for the following school year.
An annual $150 per student ($300 max per family) registration fee will be charged through TADS, our online tuition management program, on or around February 1st for students who are enrolled at St. Joseph School. Once the registration fee is charged and paid through TADS, a place will be reserved for each student. However, acceptance of the registration fee does not guarantee admission for the following year. Continued admission will be based on the family’s good standing in meeting financial obligations to the school as well as meeting compulsory attendance obligations as defined in our School Handbook. For the 2019 school year, families will need to sign a tuition agreement that will then carry forward until student graduation. Changes to your tuition agreement, such as banking information, payment dates, etc., can be changed at any time during the school year by contacting TADS.
St. Joseph Catholic Community has a strong commitment to provide quality Catholic education at our parish school. At the same time, we realize that not all parents are able to pay the full amount of tuition. Therefore, St. Joseph Catholic Community has scholarship funds available to qualifying families. Tuition should not be the deciding factor in your child(ren)’s ability to attend St. Joseph Catholic School. In order to allocate the aid in a fair and objective manner, we have enlisted the services of TADS.
A properly completed scholarship application must be submitted online at www.mytads.com. It is recommended that scholarship applications be submitted by April 1 each year so that scholarship credits can be applied to the first tuition payments due in June.
