Gospel Value: Respect

Respecting the life and dignity of myself and each person in thought, word and action.

Dear Star Families and Friends,

It’s that time of year again… Re-registration! I am truly looking forward to welcoming back all our families for the 2019-2020 school year. Our re-registration packets have been sent home with all needed information. You will notice that there is an increase in our tuition and Fees for the upcoming year. While I recognize any increase in tuition will impact our school families, such increases are necessary to better the quality of our academic programs, properly compensate our teachers, and to ensure the long term viability of our school.


Please know that when determining tuition, my attempt is to try and keep balance between affordability and the strategic needs of our school. For the 2019-2020, tuition will increase by $20 per student per month for the overall academic year. We ask our families to keep in mind; the actual cost to educate a student is greater than paid tuition, and to bridge this financial gap we are blessed to have the parishioner rate for our families. Soon we will be sending the parishioner rate form for you to take to your pastor to fill out so that you can continue to get the parishioner rate.


The tuition increase is necessary to ensure that we have adequate resources to keep pace with the forecasted increase in operational costs of the physical campus. More importantly this will allow us to begin making necessary capital and educational investments to update our in-class curricula and the much needed technological devices for our students.


Our goal is to provide the highest quality of equitable education for your children, and are working to ensure that we are utilizing all available resources as efficiently and effectively as possible.


Please do not hesitate to contact me or the school office with any questions regrading financial assistance available. I thank you for entrusting us with being part of your children’s upbringing, and for the value you place on Catholic education.



God Bless!
