In an effort to keep tuition affordable, the school subsidizes a portion of the true cost of educating its students. Approximately 22% of St. Joseph School students receive additional financial assistance. This year alone, nearly $900,000 in financial aid assistance has been made available to these students. Currently there is a gap of about $2,500 between tuition and the true cost per student.
Your generous support of the St. Joseph Annual Appeal helps the school provide a high-quality Catholic education to students regardless of their social, economic, or religious background. The proceeds not only help cover the cost of financial aid, but also help fund curriculum, staff training, building upgrades and many other initiatives.
Each year we set a goal of 100% participation by school families and staff. This year we hope to raise $515,000.
