Here are some options available to pay your tuition:
Option 1: We encourage all families to apply for tuition grants. Through the generosity of parishioners, alumni, and friends of St. Stanislaus School, we are able to offer tuition grants for those who qualify. There is no fee to apply. All information is kept strictly confidential.
- Who qualifies for a tuition grant and how much assistance can I expect?
Tuition grants are based upon your family’s income, number of dependents, and any extenuating circumstances. Grant awards vary depending on your family’s financial situation as well as the amount of funds budgeted for grants by St. Stanislaus School.
Option 2: Our partnership with FACTS opens up a wide variety of payment options for you. This is the most popular option at our school. The majority of our families utilize the payment plan services. FACTS provides you with the option to pay monthly (12 months), monthly (10 months), quarterly, or semi-annually. There is no interest charged for utilitizing a payment plan.
- What is the FACTS program and when do tuition payments begin?
Parents complete a FACTS form, choosing a monthly due date and method of payment. FACTS is not a loan, and there are no credit checks or interest charges. At St. Stanislaus School, you can pay either once, quarterly, monthly for 10 months, or once a month for 12 months. Traditionally, FACTS payments start on August 5th.
Option 3: You can pay in full by the first day of school in August. Families who pay in full will receive a $50.00 credit per family.

My favorite memory would probably be last year’s 8th-grade graduation when we were in 7th grade and we played chimes for the 8th grade. It was fun. I am excited to know that this year I will be part of the 8th-grade graduation at the end of this year. – Grade 8 student
