Tuition & Fees

Tuition is determined annually by the School Advisory Council. For the 2020-21 school year, tuition is $4,500 per student grades K-5. We offer a 3% discount to families with more than one or two students if the tuition is paid by August 15, 2020. We also offer a 3% discount to families registering two or more students and a 7% discount for three or more children regardless of when/how tuition is paid.

Only one discount or financial aid award is allowed to be used per family and discounts cannot be combined with other discounts or financial aid awards.

The full cost to educate a child in K-5th Grade is $8,400/student; St. Jude of the Lake Church invests the difference of $3,900 per student from financial support from Sunday collections. Last year, the Church shared 24.59% of the Sunday collections, or $222,455.52,  with our school to share in the financial cost to educate the students of St. Jude of the Lake School.

Our registration fee is $300 per student. This fee is non-refundable and is not applied to tuition. In addition, we charge a one-time $125 per student Activity Fee due prior to the start of the school year to cover the cost of most school supplies, all field trips, science lab supplies and technology for the year.

A Message From the Principal

As principal, it is very important to me that everyone who steps through our doors, whether it be a staff member, parent, student or visitor, is excited to be here.  The positive attitude and welcoming setting enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, nurturing environment and grow our school community, while furthering our mission of providing a strong Catholic foundation for our students.
