Families may choose to make one payment (full amount) due in August or two equal payments, due in August and January. Arrangements to make monthly payments (eleven month plan) must be made through the FACTS Tuition Management Service. Families who plan to make any manual payments must make the payments in the main office. If your tuition payments fall two months behind, your student(s) enrollment will be in jeopardy.
Parishioners are defined as those families who are involved, practicing, registered contributing members of St. Basil Parish. In order to continue receiving the Parishioner rate, families are required to contribute $200 annually ($4 per week) to St. Basil Parish through regular use of the envelopes. Non-parishioners are those who do not.
For the academic year 2014-2015, the cost of education per child is approximately $4900. Tuition covers about 97% of the total cost. Cost is kept as low as possible because of substantial Parish support, the contributed services of our dedicated teachers, and the fundraisers and contributed services of our faithful parents. The Advisory Commission has a strong policy of Fair Share access to these tuition subsidies.
The “Parental Involvement” policy, amended March, 1995, states:
“In order to promote Catholic Christian involvement in the Parish and School so that the children may see how important we hold Catholic Education, even to the point of personal sacrifice, the following requirements must be completed by all families with children enrolled at St. Basil School:
1) Worshipping together as a family and supporting St. Basil Church as evidenced by registering in the Parish and regular use of Parish contribution envelopes.
2) Fulfilling tuition obligations.
3) Completing the hours commitment and participation in fund-raisers.”
Scrip is a certificate used in place of cash or check to purchase goods at participating stores and restaurants. The scrip program costs families no additional money. Families receive dollar-for-dollar value at all participating stores. Scrip, purchased by friends or family, USING YOUR CUSTOMER NUMBER, will apply to your scrip participation. The Advisory Commission recommends an average purchase of $200.00 per month ($2400.00 per year). Families may prefer to opt-out by contributing $150.00 in lieu of scrip purchases.
The Holiday Catalog Sale, Crab Fee and Instant Wine Cellar are fundraisers to support the school. Families may prefer to opt-out by contributing $150.00 in lieu of fundraising participation
Recognizing the importance of parental involvement in the parish/school community and the many demands on parents’ time, the Advisory Commission has suggested the number of service hours at 30 per family per school year in activities approved by the Principal and the Parents’ Club.
It is of the utmost importance that parents remind themselves that their support of the school, especially in regard to prompt payment of tuition and willingness to volunteer in school projects, is a pre-requisite to re-registration and a condition for continued presence in school. Report cards may be held from families who are delinquent on payments. The school reserves the right to deny re-admission to any family delinquent in tuition or who has not met the school contract. Any family who fails to meet the parent involvement requirements, may be charged increased registration fees for the subsequent year. In addition, failure to support the philosophy, objectives, and policies of the school may also result in a bar to re-admission.
Volunteer Hours, required as part of enrollment in the school, include activities such as time spent working on the auction or crab feed, coaching, or providing yard supervision. Hours should not be credited for attending mandatory meetings (a separate commitment).
