Enrollment FAQ's

New applications have a $25 application fee. New and Returning Families' registration fee is $150/student ($300 per family max) *returning families are auto-billed the registration fee on or around February 1 of each year.

Fair Share/Fundraising Opportunities $600
The cost of educating a full-time student at St. Joseph School exceeds the rate of tuition and parish investment.

St. Joseph School uses a Fair Share program for grades K-8 that defines each family’s requirement to participate in fundraising efforts to offset school operating expenses and manage tuition.

Examples of fundraising activities are our best selling Value Book, Kwik Trip gas cards, and Rake for a Reason. The profits are applied to each family’s Fair Share obligation. Families may choose to participate in any or all of the fundraising activities to raise money toward the $600 family obligation, or they may contribute the additional money necessary to meet the $600 Fair Share obligation.
