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.

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 35 service hours. Fundraising obligations are divided by trimester to facilitate the allocation of funds by family. If parents do not finish service hours and/or fundraising obligations, the balance will be paid in the office (see parent contracts).
SMART TUITION: All choosing a monthly payment plan are required to register for the Smart Tuition online system. 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 May (for 8th graders) or June.
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
