St. Joseph Catholic STEM School does not want cost to be the deciding factor for families so we work with you to ensure your tuition is affordable, create a payment plan, and help you make Catholic education a reality!
2023-2024 Tuition Rate $5,800
Multiple Children Rate Adjustment
For families with 3 children enrolled at St. Joseph K-8 school, the tuition for the 3rd child will be discounted by 10%. For families with 4 children enrolled in St. Joseph K-8 school, the 3rd child receives a 10% tuition discount and the 4th child is eligible for the St. Gianna Molla Scholarship, which, thanks to a donation by an anonymous donor, covers 100% of the 4th child's tuition. Any family with more than 4 children enrolled at St. Joseph at the same time, should meet with the administration to discuss a tuition plan. (In order to receive any discount or scholarships, families must complete the financial aid application in TADS).
2023-2024 Registration Fees
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. Students auto-enroll each year unless notice has been provided to the school prior.
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.
Our parish has a strong commitment to providing a Catholic education to all those that desire it. Cost should not be the deciding factor in your decision. St. Joseph School provides many families with tuition assistance. We will work with your family to make a Catholic education a reality. Let us show you the incredible opportunities for your children at St. Joseph Catholic School. For any questions about scholarships, please email Bruce Richards at

St. Gianna Molla Scholarship
Through the generous donation of a benefactor, we have started a scholarship for families with four or more children. This scholarship is offered for the fourth child who will have 100% of their tuition paid. The donor wants to make this a long-term commitment. We have named this scholarship the St. Gianna Molla Scholarship.*
*St. Gianna Molla is the patron saint of mothers, physicians, and unborn children. She died on Easter Sunday, 1962 after giving birth to her fourth child, choosing her child's life over her own.
