Tuition is the largest source of revenue for the school and each year we also receive generous support from the parish as well as fundraisers to make up the difference between expenses and income.
Each year the parish contributes approximately seventeen percent of the school's overall budget. This is in line with diocesan guidelines for schools. This year, the parish will continue to generously support the school as it does for all of its ministries. This subsidy for the school comes from the weekly offertory of the parishioners. We ask that parishioner families take that into consideration when making their weekly offerings.
Our annual gala and other fundraising efforts contribute to reducing the tuition of all Saint Joan of Arc students. This year we were able to fundraise enough to cover operating expenses, keep tuition costs down, purchase new equipment, curriculum and make important improvements such as replacing doors at the gym entrance.
