“A Catholic education impacts the future of our Church and nation. An education grounded in the teachings of Jesus Christ results in a stronger commitment to faith, moral values, integrity and concern for others.”
Catholic elementary schools continue to operate significantly below the cost per child of public or private schools. This is due, in part, to the fact that the teacher salaries are not comparable with those in the public sector. Nevertheless, the operating costs rise each year and so tuition must increase.
Especially given the current economic conditions, the cost of a Catholic School education is a problem for many families who would otherwise want to enroll their children at St. Martin of Tours Academy. We have a commitment , however, to assist families with the costs. Tuition assistance is an ongoing fund-raiser.
The amount needed for tuition assistance in the 2015-2016 school year was $50,000. More and more families each year are needing a subsidy to help with the total tuition amount.
Sponsoring a child is a wonderful way to help. Donations, in any amount, to the tuition assistance fund is appreciated. If interested in making a donation, please contact the school office. (619.466.3241)
