Tuition

Tuition Scale


Every attempt is made to keep tuition at a reasonable amount for our families.  As a private school, we do not receive any local or federal funds to subsidize the cost of a Catholic education.  Our funds come from tuition, parish subsidy, and third source funds (i.e. fundraisers, Scrip, Endowment Fund).  Below is the current tuition scale.  


 

TUITION AND FEES

2021-2022
 

Registration begins during Catholic Schools Week. The registration form for both new and returning families can be found on the St. Kilian School website under “Enrollment”. Families are asked to complete the registration form and to send a check for the family’s $250 registration fee to the School Office by May 1st. The $250 fee will be applied to your family’s tuition bill.

The remaining tuition balance will be divided into 10 installments with the 1st payment due at supply drop-off. Two other payment options include:
  • Payment in full by September 1st with an applied 2% discount.
  • One payment per semester plan (September/January) with a 1% discount of the total tuition cost applied during the spring semesterpayment.
    • (Ex. $3,300 tuition bill. August payment would be $1,650 and January payment would be $1,617, reflecting the 1% discount.)
Please note - your tuition maybe tax-deductible. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
 
Wisconsin Parental Choice Program: Families may apply for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) between Feb. 1st and April 15th.
 
Tuition Assistance: A payment plan may be arranged until tuition is paid in full. (Please see the bottom of the next page.)
 
PARISH SUBSIDY
The total cost of educating a student at St. Kilian School is over $7,800. While tuition fees play a significant role in covering operating expenses of the school, the parish and generosity of our parishioners cover the remaining portion of educating our students. Our students and staff are blessed to have the continual support of our parish community.

 

POLICIES FOR TUITION AND FEES

PAYMENT SCHEDULE: Payments may be made by check, ACH withdrawal, or our online payment program, WeShare. WeShare will allow you to make payments from a credit or debit card, as well as a savings or checking account.

  1. Monthly installment automatic withdrawal program as established by the parish.  Payments made through an agreement with the business manager from your checking or savings account (ACH) to St. Kilian begin September and go through May.  Payments will be due on the 15th of each month.
  2. Payment in full to the parish through the school or parish office on or before August 31st, which will result in a 2% discount. 
  3. Two payment plan.  50% of the balance due will be due on September 15, and the remaining balance due on January 15, which will result in a 1% discount of the     total tuition bill given towards the second payment.

ADDITIONAL OPPORTUNITIES

SCRIP PROGRAM: All families may participate in the SCRIP Program run by St. Kilian School/Parish. Proceeds from purchasing gift cards through the program will benefit the families and parish. The family's rebate for the school year will be applied to tuition for the day school or religious education program. Please see the school website for more information.

PARENT INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM: School parents per School Committee policy are highly encouraged to participate in the Parent Involvement Program.  Volunteer work within the school and parish helps to keep the cost of tuition and programs down. Volunteering also sets an example for our students who are required to obtain service hours.
