Tuition Policy:

For the upcoming school year tuition intake will cover less than 60% of the operating cost of the school. Parents Guild fundraising, diocesan Catholic Tuition Grant Program funds, reimbursement by the State of NY for mandated services and ultimately the parishioners of Saints Peter and Paul parish cover the remaining 40% plus of operating costs. Salaries and benefits for teachers, school administration and school staff comprise 80% of the operating cost of the school. The school is dependent on parents faithfully covering their tuition obligations in order to cover the school payroll.

Delinquency Policy For Tuition and Fees:

 

SSPP depends on timely payments of tuition in order to cover school payroll. It is the parent’s responsibility to faithfully make tuition payments or if a problem develops, to contact the pastor of Saints Peter and Paul Parish for potential alternative arrangements.

 

If tuition payments fall into arrears without parents contacting the pastor for help, expect the following:

 

-At 30 days past due, parents will receive notification in writing of the past due amount. Parents will have 15 days to address the delinquent payment or to contact the pastor to make alternative arrangements.

 

-At 60 days past due, unless alternative arrangements are made, the school considers the tuition account delinquent and reserves the right to turn over the account for collection. Any legal or collection fees will be the responsibility of the parent(s) or legal guardian(s). Students will not be allowed to participate in school year end activities such as field trips and graduation. Transcripts and final report cards will be withheld pending satisfaction of outstanding tuition obligations. Students will not be allowed to start a new school year if there is an outstanding tuition obligation from a prior year.

 

As the parent(s) or legal guardian(s), you agree to reimburse us the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage at a maximum of 33% of the debt, and all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, we incur in such collection efforts.
