Tuition and Financial Aid

3rd Grade Valentine Party

2018-2019

Tuition

At Saint Anne School, we recognize the importance of providing a quality, challenging, faith-based education. Unfortunately, Catholic schools are not the recipients of tax dollars or federal funding as are public schools. 


Saint Anne charges tuition to cover 60% of the total operating expenses of the school. The remaining expenses   are covered through a parish subsidy (up to 25%), fundraising (10%), and bequests and donations (5%).

The tuition scale for the 2018-2019 school year is as follows:

1 child:                                 $3,700* 

2 children (K-8):                   $5,600* (includes a $500 Angel Fund Grant)

3 or more children (K-8):      $6,700* (includes a $1000 Angel Fund Grant)

*   This is the MAXIMUM amount a family will be asked to pay.  Tuition is negotiated on a case-by-case basis according to demonstrated financial need.  A large percentage of our families receive tuition support from Saint Anne School and financial aid from the Diocese of Pittsburgh.  Saint Anne School is accessible, available, and affordable.

 

Financial Aid

All families who would like their children to receive the opportunities afforded by a Catholic education will be welcome at Saint Anne School, regardless of any challenges to meet the cost.  Tuition gifts and scholarships are available primarily through three avenues:  the Bishop’s Education Fund, the Scholastic Opportunity Scholarship, and the Saint Anne Angel Tuition Assistance Fund. 


Diocesan financial aid instructions and application process instructions for the 2018-2019 school year are available through the diocesan website at http://www.diopitt.org/affordable.


Please note that in order to be eligible for any financial aid, the financial aid application forms must be submitted.
You may also contact our school office at 412.561.7720 for information on any tuition assistance and scholarship opportunities. All inquiries remain confidential.


Fundraising

The Diocese of Pittsburgh mandates that 10% of a school’s operating budget be raised through fundraising. For Saint Anne School, this equates to approximately $90,000 per year.  To reach this target, each family participates in the Family Share Program which requires that each family raise or contribute $300 during the school year.  There are many opportunities throughout the school year for each family to reach its Family Share fundraising requirement, often without any out-of-pocket expenses.  Additionally, any money raised above the Diocesan requirement may be used by Saint Anne School for improvements and renovations to the school!
