Local Tuition Assistance
Each year we have several alumni, parish members and generous patrons donate several thousands of dollars to the Local tuition assistance fund. This fund is in place to help families make St. John school affordable to attend, while still continuing to receive the best quality education possible.
We are very blessed offer this assistance to families that either do not qualify for STO or have suffered an unexpected financial crisis after the STO deadline. If you do receive this assistance the St. John school would ask that there are a few requirements be accomplished before receiving the assistance.
The St. John School board would ask that the following be done:
- Spend $100 in SCRIP per month, this is very easy to do please inquire in the office if you need assistance.
- Involve yourself in the school, volunteer, join a committee PTO, Spring Fling, School Improvement Advisory Committee, Concession stand, Sports gate or SCRIP.
- Write a thank you addressed to the Local Tuition Assistance, you can remain anonymous if wanted.
