2023-2024 Tuition Rates


St. Francis Parish Steward Tuition Rate:

The Parish Steward Rate is offered to Catholic registered parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi who support our parish community with their time, talent, and with identifiable financial contributions at a level commensurate with their means. This discount is determined after a review by the pastor. Please click here to complete the Parish Stewardship form.
