Saint Simon Parish School is a ministry of St. Simon Parish and relies on the parish as a whole for financial, administrative, religious, and spiritual support. Those families who are active in the stewardship of the parish through participation in the life of the parish and who make contributions through their offertory giving are eligible for the In-Parish tuition rate, which is $3,300 less per child than the Out-of-Parish rate. The offertory giving is tax deductible. 

To qualify for the In-Parish rate, a family must fulfill all the following conditions:

  1. Must be Catholic, registered in St. Simon Catholic Parish. Online registration can be completed at the Parish website www.stsimon.church
  2. Participate regularly in Mass at St. Simon Church, evidenced by the participation in the parish’s ParishSoft Online Giving program. Annual tax-deductible financial contributions should take into consideration and reflect at least the difference between the “In-Parish” and “Out of Parish” tuition rate, of $3,300 per child. 
  3. All school families are expected to affirm their call to stewardship by participating in parish and school social, fundraising, and volunteer activities. 

New families are eligible to receive the “In-Parish” tuition rate after completing online registration with the parish and enrollment in OnLine Giving. Click  Parish Registration  and the Online Giving to get to the portal, or access by visiting https://www.stsimon.church.

The In-Parish status of all families will be reviewed annually during the school year, with the first review at the end of the first trimester. Families who do not meet the above conditions will be notified and the tuition status will be changed to “Out-of-Parish” retroactive to the start of the school year. Any family unable to meet the required conditions because of financial hardship or who is in need of financial assistance to meet tuition costs should contact the principal, Ann Kozlovsky, akozlovsky@stsimon.org. If you have any questions regarding the above policy or your tuition rate classification, please contact Joan Mibach, Parish Business Manager, at jmibach@stsimon.org.

NEW MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT SURCHARGE

Saint Simon Parish School believes that students benefit greatly by attending our school and encourages families to maximize this benefit by enrolling their student during both the elementary and middle school years. For new students who enroll in the school for the first time in grades 6, 7 or 8, there is an additional middle school assessment of $2,000 per year. This fee is waived for current school families, students transferring from another Catholic school, students moving to the area from out of Santa Clara County, or when a second child is also enrolled in grades K – 5.

EIGHTH GRADE FEE

The eighth-grade fee will cover the cost of graduation and a portion of the cost of the graduation party.

OTHER FEES

Other miscellaneous school fees include supplemental books, field trips, clubs, sports, and extended care. These fees are billed via TADS.

TUITION PAYMENT AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
BILLING AND COLLECTION

Enrollment and other fees will be collected through TADS by automatic payment using a Credit Card or by Automatic Payment from a bank account. If you are a new family at Saint Simon Parish School, please read below about the steps you will need to follow to complete your enrollment online with TADS.

TUITION PAYMENT POLICY

The operations of Saint Simon Parish School are dependent on the timely payment of tuition and fees. A seven-day grace period is offered on tuition payments paid on an installment plan. No grace period is offered on the single or double payment plan.
Saint Simon Parish School shall assess a late fee of $25 through TADS on day seven following the missed tuition payment if alternate arrangements have not been agreed upon between the family and principal of Saint Simon Parish School. In addition, any fee of $50 incurred by Saint Simon Parish School due to a returned or rejected payment due to insufficient funds will be charged back to the family’s tuition account in TADS.

DELINQUENT PAYMENTS

Tuition and fees are considered “delinquent” if one month past due. A meeting with the principal will be scheduled with any parent/guardian whose account is delinquent with the goal of reaching alternative arrangements to prevent the account from falling further behind.
Saint Simon Parish School reserves the right to do any of the following with regard to the payment of past due accounts for which no payment arrangements have been made:
Deny enrollment for the next trimester
Collect all amounts owed for the full academic year before reinstating the right to attend
Deny a student participation in end-of-year activities and/or ceremonies
Under California law, a private school cannot refuse to provide student records to a requesting elementary school or high school because of any outstanding charges, including tuition or fees owed. However, in accordance with Saint Simon Parish School policy, Saint Simon Parish School may withhold from parents/guardians the student’s report cards, diplomas, or transcripts pending payment of amounts for damaged property, the return of loaned property, or unpaid tuition or fees.
If a family’s financial obligations are not fulfilled at the time of enrollment for the following academic year and the family has not established and/or maintained a suitable payment schedule, student(s) will not be permitted to enroll for the next academic year.
If the tuition payment plan presents a problem to any family, the principal must be contacted so that suitable arrangements can be made.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

St. Simon Parish and the Diocese of San Jose have scholarship funds available, which are awarded based on demonstrated need. An application for Financial Assistance must be completed on-line with TADS.  February 15 is the deadline determined by the Diocese of San Jose and parents seeking such aid must be proactive in seeking out the information and adhering to the stated deadlines. We do consider late applications but assistance after the deadline is dependent on available funds. For more information please contact: Ann Kozlovsky, at (650) 880-1436.

To apply for Financial Assistance for the upcoming school year:

  • Please go to TADS financial aid.  If you do not have a TADS account you will be prompted to create one.
  • Applications received after the deadline will be considered based on funds available for financial assistance at the time of application.

The Basic Fund is a separate entity that provides need-based scholarships to Catholic school students. All families applying for financial aid are strongly encouraged to apply to the Basic Fund as well as following the TADS submission process.

NON-DISCRIMINATION POLICY
