Tuition

Saint John’s is committed to ensuring our excellent Catholic education remains affordable and accessible to all families. Please see our "Tuition Support and Affordability" tab below to learn how. 

 

In 2019-2020, our actual cost to educate one child is approximately $6,400. We charge separate tuition structures for Pre-K and K-8. For Pre-K, tuition is determined by program type within the week:

Pre-K 3, 5 full days (am school, pm childcare)

As a parish school of the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend, our parish subsidizes the cost of tuition for parishioner families in kindergarten through 8th grade. K-8 tuition therefore is structured for parishioners and non-parishioners. Parishioner families are defined in our handbook and refer to families who are enrolled in our parish and support our parish and school in specific ways. This includes regularly attending mass and financially supporting the parish. Parishioner tuition is therefore lower, and includes a multi-child discount. Non-parishioner tuition matches our full cost of education.

Tuition is payable semi-monthly, monthly, or semi-annually, or annually. All schools in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend use a nationally awarded payment management system called FACTS to make payments. Payment arrangements are set up online through the secure FACTS system, and can then be linked to a bank account or credit card.
