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 approximately $3,200 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:
New families are eligible to receive the “In-Parish” tuition rate after completing on line registration with the parish and enrollment in On Line Giving. Parish Registration and the Online Giving portal are accessible at 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, firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions regarding the above policy or your tuition rate classification, please contact Joan Mibach, Parish Business Manager, at email@example.com.
St. 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 entering St. Simon Parish School for the first time in grades 6, 7 and 8, there is an additional middle school fee of $2,000 per year. This fee is waived for students transferring from another Catholic school or when a second child is also enrolled in grades K – 5.
This fee is helps to cover the cost of enrollment, administration, textbooks, Department of Catholic Schools fee, Catholic Telemedia Network fee, standardized testing, yard duty, child health insurance costs, room parent expenses, health office expenses, and annual yearbook. The registration fee is nonrefundable.
This fee will help cover the costs of on-line learning materials, on-going maintenance of student laptops, network and internet access upgrades, professional development in technology for teachers, software and website upgrades, and to maintain professional IT staff to ensure the effectiveness of the school’s technology infrastructure. The technology fee is nonrefundable.
The eighth-grade fee covers the costs of graduation and most of the costs of the graduation party. Eighth-grade families only. The graduation fee is nonrefundable.

All Saint Simon Parish School and Little Saints Preschool billing and payments will be processed through TADS Tuition Management.

Tuition for the 2023-2024 school year may be paid in full on July 10, 2023, semi-annually on July 10, 2023 and on December 10, 2023, or in ten monthly payments due on the 10th of each month, beginning July 10, 2023 through May 10, 2024 (Except February 2024).

In addition, fees 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.
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.
