Withdrawing from School

Families who transfer from St. Louis Catholic Academy before the conclusion of the school year are responsible for tuition payments for all full months attended (enrollment for at least five school days in a month will count as a full month).

Special Note:

Parents/Guardians should be aware of the expense in operating a school and in providing their children with a quality, Catholic education.

Families need to accept the financial responsibility that education involves.

In situations where there are unforeseen financial difficulties in the family, it is the parents’/guardians’ obligation to notify Minette Blair, Business Manager, at 389-0401 x1011 or blair@slca-stl.org.

A financial review committee will work with willing families in developing a fair and equitable solution in meeting their responsibilities to the school.
