Tuition, Stewardship & Development

Providing our children with high quality, faith-filled education is an effort that requires financial support. The average cost of educating a student is over $8,000 per year. The school is funded through:
  • Tuition payments
  • Stewardship offerings & Parish investment
  • Development commitments
  • Parent Fundraising

Tuition Assistance

We know that Catholic education changes lives. For many families though, the cost of tuition makes it unattainable. If a family desires a Catholic education for their student, we encourage you to apply for Empower Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship.
  • Empower Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program

Empower Illinois Scholarship Program awards tuition assistance grants to K-12 students from families with limited financial resources. Visit https://EmpowerIllinois.org to access the reservation form and begin your application.
 

Parish Investment

The parishes invested over $80,000 of offerings in the school for the 2019-2020 school year. The church relies on the generosity of school families, as well as all parishioners, to make this investment.
 

Fundraising Commitment

St. Alphonsus/St. Patrick School has a FinanceCommittee that plans initiatives to grow the school’s, Celtic Fund. The Fund is used to cover the cost of multi-student tuition discounts, tuition assistance, academic and technological enhancements, budget shortfalls, and resources for the future. Each year, there is a development goal that supports this effort. Each family is asked to contribute to support that goal, as well as participate in voluntary fundraising efforts and events. Your support is appreciated!
