Tuition & Fees

Tuition Information

For the 2021-22 school year, families will continue to have three payment options for paying tuition. Families can pay in full by June 1, 2021 (and receive a discount for doing so) or can opt to pay on a monthly or bimonthly basis. Monthly and bimonthly payments begin in June 2021 and run through April 2022. Please review the 2021-22 tuition schedule at the bottom of this page for the discount that would be applied to your rate and number of children.

St. Thomas More Cathedral School requires all families to use FACTS, an automated payment system, to process tuition payments. By using FACTS, you preauthorize your bank or credit card company to automatically transfer tuition funds to STM on the installment payment dates set up by the school. STM also uses FACTS to bill families for all incidental charges incurred during the school year. These include charges for books and materials, milk, hot lunch, extended day usage, field trips, PTO dues, etc. To facilitate timely payment of all incidental expenses, we encourage you to consider enrolling in auto-pay for your incidental expenses account.

Returning Families

All families who are currently signed up to make their payments through FACTS will be automatically re-enrolled in the program in April for the upcoming school year. Please ensure that your personal and financial account information are kept current. If you need to make changes to your personal or financial account information, you may do so directly by logging into your account at the link provided on this page. 

New Families

If you are a new family joining us for the upcoming academic year, you also need to establish an account with FACTS. Please visit the FACTS Login page accessible via the button above and click on “Start Here.” Follow the prompts to set up a new user account. If you have any questions or require assistance in setting up your new account, please call the school office and ask for Bookkeeping.
