INVESTING IN YOUR CHILD'S FUTURE
Parents who choose Catholic education for their children recognize the benefits far outweigh the costs. They realize that it is an investment for the future, one that cannot be measured in dollars and cents alone.
Additional information regarding St. John the Evangelist School's tuition can be obtained by contacting the school at (219) 365-5451.
SCHOOL TUITION, FEES & SUPPORT
Registration Fee for School Year 2023-24:
$100.00 per child for preschool through 8th grade (due at the time of registration)
Registration fee is non-refundable
Registration fee is for CURRENT families $100 per child if paid after February 14, 2023
Each family signs a written payment plan. Tuition may be paid directly to the school office annually, quarterly, or on a ten-month basis for kindergarten through eighth grade. Preschool payments are paid over 9 months, September through May.
TUITION/PARISH SUPPORT POLICY
As is the case at most Catholic schools, tuition at St. John the Evangelist does not cover the complete cost of education. A percentage cost is paid by parish through regular Sunday collections. St. John the Evangelist parish school families must use the parish envelope with a minimum contribution of $600.00 per year per family for grades K-8. This contribution must be made from July through May 1st of the current school year. A statement is mailed to all parish school families who have not paid parish support through their envelopes. This statement will include a notice that if their obligation is not met, they will be billed the non-parishioner rate of tuition per child. This statement also includes that only contributions made in weekly church envelopes are recorded toward this obligation. The Parish Office determines parishioner status.
HOLY NAME PARISHIONERS
Members of Holy Name parish pay support to Holy Name. Tuition payments for Holy Name parishioners are paid directly to St. John the Evangelist School.
Non-parishioner tuition is based upon the projected total cost of educating one child. Non-parishioners are required to pay tuition on either a quarterly or annual basis. The first quarterly payment is due in August before school begins. Annual payments are also due at that time.
