Tuition Refund
When a student registers at St. Catharine School, we not only hold a place for that student; we commit resources to optimize the educational experience of that student. We design staffing, supplies, and programs based on the number of registered students to ensure a quality education. 
 
Each year we forgo potential income by limiting the number of incoming students when we commit a place for your son or daughter.  We also depend on full and timely payment of tuition.  Reminder: No records, report cards, and transcripts are released from the school until financial obligations are met.
 
Therefore, the tuition refund policy is as follows:
 
A student who voluntarily withdraws from St. Catharine School will receive a partial tuition refund (based on 100% for the 2019-2020 school year tuition) according to the following schedule:
  • Withdrawal September – 30% of tuition due to school
  • Withdrawal October – 40% of tuition due to school
  • Withdrawal November  – 50% of tuition due to school
  • Withdrawal December – 60% of tuition due to school
  • Withdrawal after December 30, 2019 – Full tuition is due to school
