Tuition & Fees
For the 2020-2021 school year, families will continue to have three payment options for paying tuition. Families can pay in full by June 1, 2020 (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 2020 and run through April 2021. Please review the 2019-2020 tuition schedule 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.

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.
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.
The Diocese of Arlington and the STM School and Parish Community are committed to making a Catholic education attainable for all who seek it. All families are encouraged to apply for tuition aid if assistance is needed. Pursuant to diocesan guidelines issued this year, STM will again use FACTS Grant & Aid for financial aid assessments. Only families who complete the Tuition Assistance application via FACTS will be considered.
Applications can be accessed here: https://online.factsmgt.
*The deadline for 2020-2021 elementary FACTS Grant & Aid applications has been extended to Friday, April 17, 2020. Families are encouraged to submit as soon as they are able in advance of that deadline. In addition, families should know that applications received after the new deadline in April will be considered on an as-available basis determined by any remaining available funds.
The Office of Catholic Schools remains committed to doing everything possible to make Catholic education possible for families in need.
