The actual cost of a Saints Peter and Paul School education is $6,080 per child. Parish families receive a discounted tuition rate because Saints Peter and Paul Parish provides a subsidy to the school to help make Catholic education affordable for families. School families are expected to attend Mass on Sunday, be active members of the school and parish communities (volunteer), and to contribute financially to the parish. Historically, a weekly contribution of $20 has been requested. We ask that you contribute according to your means. We encourage the use of WeShare, our online giving system, for this purpose.
Tuition alone does not cover the cost of a Saints Peter and Paul School education. The Saints Peter and Paul Parish commitment, as well as fundraising efforts, allow us to keep tuition rates lower than many other Catholic schools in Chester County. It is projected that the Parish will invest $420,000 for the 2016-2017 academic year at Saints Peter and Paul School. The governing body, the Board of Limited Jurisdiction, will ensure that the school is fiscally responsible as well as continue to offer the best in Catholic Education.
