Tuition and Service Hours

Ascension Catholic School does not turn away students and their families due to financial hardship. As our population increases, so does the demand for Catholic education. Our tuition level is on par with other area Catholic schools and well below other area private schools. We work hard to maintain a feasible tuition so that current and future families can benefit from a Catholic education for years to come.

We offer:

  • Generous Financial Aid
  • Affordable Tuition and Flexible Payment Plan


Parents who recommend our school to friends and relatives, who actually enroll in Ascension for 6 months, will be given $100 off their annual tuition commitment.


Payments are made electronically through SMART TUITION PAYMENT SYSTEM. Registration is complete upon online Smart Tuition enrollment by the responsible party.  Parents must complete a contract form with the principal or bookkeeper. Please see the financial aid section of the website if assistance in needed. Final monthly tuition is on case-by-case basis.  For more information, please contact the office at 323-756-4064.

Tuition Payment options

Parents have the options to pay on-line, via invoice, or through automatic withdrawal from an account. In addition to tuition and registration, there is a one-time SMART registration fee of $50 which is paid to SMART. Registration is paid in the office at the time of enrollment. Parents have until the end of the school year to complete their service hours and fundraising obligations. If parents do not finish service hours and/or fundraising obligations, the balance will be paid in the office (see parent contracts). Day Care and lunch fees are paid in the office as well.

SMART TUITION: All choosing a monthly payment plan are required to register for the Smart Tuition online system. CLICK HERE. Monthly deductions are made from a checking or savings account. The number of payments is at your discretion, anywhere from 4 to 11 payments per year over the course of the school year, beginning in July and ending in April, May or June 15.

Payment in full: If you make your tuition payment in full by September, you will receive a 6% discount off your total tuition. If you also choose to pay your fundraising requirement in full, that will be included with your discount.

Half/Half: You may pay half of your tuition by September and have your balance paid in full by March (a 5% discount will be applied to your 2nd payment). If you also choose to pay your fundraising requirements in full, that will be included in your discount.

Required Parent Service Hours

Service Hours may be performed from August to May. Ascension requires 35 service hours per family per year. This can include time working at school or making donations of needed supplies. Suggestions can be found in the weekly Parent Bulletin sent home on Wednesdays. Feel free to call the office with any questions. Service hours can also be fulfilled through donating goods to the school. Please contact the office for needed supplies to fulfill service hours. Each donation must have a receipt to receive proper credit.
