Revised Tuition Policies
All matters regarding tuition should be referred to the Tuition Accounts Office in the Administration Building. The following Advisory Council policies govern the collection of tuition at Catholic High:
- If a student leaves Catholic High during the school year, tuition remains due and payable for the remainder of the semester in which the student leaves, and fees remain due and payable for the year, subject to certain exceptions for waiver or refund as established by the Tuition Assistance and Collection Committee.
- This will apply after the date of August 1, when the first payment is considered due. If they leave before August 1, the family is not held to the policy stated in the handbook.
- A meeting will be scheduled for each individual case if the student leaves during the school year or after August 1 of the new school year.
- Payment is due by the first (1st) of the month. If payment is not received by the tenth (10th) of the month, it is considered past due and a $25.00 late fee will be added to the account.
- Any past due accounts will be referred to the Tuition Assistance and Collection Committee for further action.
- No exams will be given for any student with an outstanding balance; the student’s final grade will be considered incomplete until the balance is paid in full. Students must take exams within two weeks from the last day of the previous semester. Any student with an outstanding balance in the first semester, and who has not taken exams by the end of the two weeks will be dismissed from CHS. No student with an outstanding balance will be allowed to register or be readmitted for the next school year.
- Once an account is past due, ALL monies received will be applied directly to the outstanding tuition balance regardless of any other indication or instruction.
- A student is prohibited from participating in any athletic or extra-curricular activity as long as applicable fees are outstanding.
- Payment in full by July 1st for the following year will result in a $100.00 reduction in tuition and fees.
- Registration is non-refundable. Only exceptions:
- Moving out of town
- Catholic High School Administration no longer allows the student to return.
- If a family applies for Tuition Assistance and is denied, the registration is not refundable, although the family may request a meeting with the tuition assistance committee to discuss this decision.
At the tuition assistance meeting on April 28, 2004, the committee recommended we add/update policies for the future tuition assistance applications upon council approval:
- A 1099 and W2’s must be supplied with all tuition assistance applications; business owners should supply the self-employed business form, K-l, Schedule F, or/and Schedule C.
- A signed copy of the original income taxes, which were sent to the IRS.
- If child support is received, a verification of the child support is required.
- In divorced families, if the child lives with both parents, even part-time, we must receive verification forms for both households, unless court-approved papers can be provided.
- Income verification for all parents and step-parents living in the same household, whether or not they are legally married.
