Tuition and Fees 2016 - 2017

 

Our school is supported by tuition and fees, fundraisers, the Endowment Fund distributions, donations, and parish subsidy. The school and parish is able to offer a substantial parish subsidy and family discount to its parishioners due to the continued support of our Parish Sunday collections and school fundraising events. All families are expected to participate in these efforts. The Pastor, Principal and Parish Administrators with the advice of the School Advisory Body and Parish Finance/Administration Commission set the tuition rates each spring for the upcoming school year.

SMG Tuition Transfer Grant Beginning 2017-18 School Year

Bishop Conlon has said that “next to its sacramental life, Catholic education is the greatest gift that God enables the Catholic Church to provide.” At St. Mary of Gostyn School we take pride in providing a Catholic education that lays the foundation for students to make right choices. We also believe that students in our school belong to something bigger than themselves thanks to their understanding that all that they do is directed toward an increased knowledge and love of God

 

In order to offer the gift of Catholic education to students in our community, we will offer a $1,500 tuition transfer grant ($1,000 for year one and $500 for year two) to any student (grades 1-7)  who transfers into St. Mary of Gostyn School from any private (non-Catholic), public, charter or home school. This two-year grant will  offset current school tuition.
