Tuition and Fee Information

Tuition Rates and Fees

Christ King Parish operates our school as an investment in the Catholic education of children, although our doors are open to all faiths. Many of our school families are registered Christ King parishioners, actively engaged in living and practicing their Catholic faith by:
  • Attending Sunday, Holy Day & often our daily Masses
  • Teaching faith to their children through word and example
  • Committing annually to our Parish Stewardship Program, in both ministerial and financial giving
  • Adhering to the policies in our Christ King Parish School Handbook
  • Allowing their children to fully participate in all phases of our school's daily religious education
For these families, the parish subsidizes the gap between actual school operating costs and tuition charged, along with offering a reduced school tuition rate. For reference, below is a breakdown of our 2017/18 reduced tuition rates for registered parishioners (active in faith and our Stewardship Program) and our non-reduced rates for non-parishioners.

Tuition Rate Reductions & Assistance

Scrip Credits
SCRIP is a program that allows members of the school and/or parish to purchase gift certificates or gift cards for use at many local and national businesses. In return, these businesses give Christ King Parish a varying percent (anywhere from 1 to 25%) for each certificate or gift card purchased. Of the total credit, 75% goes to the designation chosen by the purchaser. The remaining 25% is used to cover SCRIP expenses. Many school families use their Scrip credit to lower their overall tuition bill. Click here to read more information on the program along with other ways our parishioners use their credits.
Financial Assistance Program
The financial need for the Tuition Assistance Program of Christ King Parish is based on 175% of the government established standard of poverty. Additional allowances are made for families having documentation of excessive medical expenses or other unusual circumstances. Applications accepted after the deadlive may be subject to zero assistance funds availability, due to budget restrictions. For reference, the 2016 limits on gross income from all sources were:
