Those who received their tuition cost in the spring of 2022 will retain that amount for the coming school year.

We will make every effort to ensure that families who are experiencing financial difficulties will not be excluded from school. However, the business office needs to be kept informed of these times so that both parties can reach an agreement. We must also insist that payments to Cathedral School and parish remain a high priority among our families in order to pay the salaries and expenses for our school program. Tuition assistance/scholarship applications are available upon request.
