Get Involved


Tuition alone does not cover the full cost of a Catholic education. In fact, we intentionally set the tuition rate lower than the true cost of education because it is our mission to make a Catholic education accessible to as many families as possible. Fundraising, therefore, becomes a part of our mission and gives us an opportunity to actively help one another give our children the Catholic education we all value.
