Thank you for your investment in your child(ren)’s Catholic education here at St. Mary Interparochial School, a 2016 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. As we celebrate 50 years of excellence in Catholic education this year, we look forward to partnering with you and your child(ren) as they become Christ-centered leaders of the 21st century.
In appreciation of your dedication to our religious and academic programs, we ask you to make a commitment to have your child(ren) attend St. Mary Interparochial School for the 2018-2019 school year. By committing now, the administration will be able to create a budget that will truly reflect our income/expenses for the upcoming year. It will also provide us with the barometer we need to admit those families who await acceptance decisions for their children to attend our school.
St. Mary teachers and staff strive to provide a Catholic education for those families who seek it for their children. In addition to the rigorous and relevant curriculum prescribed by the Office of Catholic Education of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, school provides for the arts education of its students. We are pleased to continue to provide a comprehensive Music, Art, Spanish, Technology and Physical Education program to all students.
The commitment period is January 22 through Thursday, February 15, 2018. The commitment fee is $150.00 per family and please note that it is non-refundable.
To make an online payment, please click here or send your check to school made payable to St. Mary Interparochial School.
Please note, after February 15, the fee will be increased to $250.00 per family.
FINANCIAL AID AND TUITION ASSISTANCE:
The form for the Children’s Scholarship Fund (CSF) scholarship, which is available for Philadelphia residents, may be accessed online at www.csfphiladelphia.org until March 1, 2018. The BLOCS scholarship organization uses a scholarship service called FACTS to determine eligibility beginning in November until March 2018. Our school code is 91072 and we strongly encourage you to apply for financial aid and to please visit www.blocs.org for more information about this viable scholarship. For the 2017-2018 year, our families received over $43,000 from BLOCS, another $27,000 from Children’s Scholarship Fund and $10,000 from the Foundation for Catholic Education.
Additionally, if you qualify for, but are not awarded assistance through BLOCS, CSF, or FCE, we will try our best to assist as many qualified families as possible. The St. Mary School Financial Aid Program designates a portion of its Annual Giving Campaign to provide scholarships to as many qualified families as possible from funds donated by our generous supporters. Last year, over $10,000 was awarded through our internal financial aid program.
Thank you once again for sending your child(ren) to St. Mary Interparochial school where children are rooted in God’s love
