*A $250 Parish Assessment Fee is received from Catholic parishes in the Archdiocese in support of parishioner children who attend SJS. If you qualify for the Catholic Parishioner rate, but your parish does not pay this fee, a $250 per child assessment will be added to your Catholic Parishioner rate.

Payment Options

At the time of registration, a $100 registration fee per family must be paid directly to Saint James School.  This fee is non-refundable; however, it will be applied towards your tuition for the school year.  The remainder of the tuition will be paid through the FACTS Tuition Management program.  Families have three payment plans available for tuition:

  • Single Payment – due in August
  • Two Payments – due in August & February
  • Ten Payments – due monthly beginning in August

More information about the FACTS program and payment options will be sent home after acceptance into the program.

Extended Day Program

The Saint James School Extended Day Program is available to provide before-school and after-school care for children attending Saint James School.

Tuition Assistance

A limited amount of tuition assistance is available for qualifying families with a child/children in the Saint James School Kindergarten – Grade 8 program. FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be processing all tuition assistance requests. Once a student has been accepted and registered in Saint James School and a FACTS tuition account has been created, families may apply for assistance by going to their FACTS account and following the link to FACTS Grant and Aid.
