Tuition rates are set by the Pastor in consultation with the School Advisory Board. Little Flower School has both Archdiocesan Parishioner and Non Archdiocesan Tuition Rates.
In keeping with Archdiocesan policy all families that are registered, active, and supportive of their parish will be afforded the Archdiocesan Parish rate of tuition since every parish in the Archdiocese is now being assessed to support Catholic Education whether they have a parish school or not.
This still presumes that our Little Flower families:
- Are formally registered in Little Flower Parish
- Worship each weekend with their Little Flower students at Little Flower Parish
- Provide verifiable financial support to the Parish. These gifts should be made by using the weekly Sunday envelopes or ParishPay and by contributing annually to the Little Flower Parish Fund
Families from other parishes in the Archdiocese who have children at LFS will be asked to provide verification from their Pastor that they are active and supportive members of their parish otherwise they will be afforded the Non Archdiocesan rate of tuition.
Families who do not meet these criteria will be charged the Non Archdiocesan tuition rates.
In accordance with Archdiocesan Policy, the School reserves the right to withhold a student's school records and report cards when a family fails to meet tuition obligations. In addition re-registration and/or readmission may be denied. In the event that some emergency makes payment impossible, families must request a meeting with the Principal or the Pastor.
The differential in tuition is set in recognition that Little Flower Parish financially invests in the education and well being of our students.
The figures listed below cover tuition plus book fees, classroom periodicals, general classroom materials, standardized testing, technology fees, most field trip expenses, playground supervision, and membership fees for our Home and School Association.
