Archdiocese of Washington Catholic School Tuition Policies:
#4340 – Each Archdiocesan Catholic school shall establish only one tuition rate for Catholic parishioners in the Archdiocese of Washington, whether in-parish or out-of-parish, not to exceed the full cost per student.
#4230 – Parish tuition assistance shall be made available to families with demonstrated need for the second and subsequent children enrolled in the school.
Please remember that in order to receive the Catholic tuition rate, each family must complete and return a Parish Verification Form, which includes a check-box for parish assistance if it is available. We have received many forms already. If you are a member of a parish other than SJB, please remember to include a letter from your pastor or have your pastor sign the form. If you returned your form without your pastor’s signature, please send us a letter from your pastor so that you will receive the Catholic rate.
In the next few weeks, you should receive a proposed tuition agreement through TADS, our tuition management service, with the option of choosing one of several payment plans. I want to thank you in advance for your prompt response, for your support, and for entrusting SJB to be your partners in the education of your children.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Y. David Brault
