Tuition for the 2021 -2022 School Year

St. Lucy Catholic School

January 10, 2021

Tuition Letter 2021-2

Dear Siena families,

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions a family can make. This year, in particular, required trust, partnership, and faith, and we sincerely thank you for investing in your child’s future with an academically rigorous and Christ-centered education from Siena Catholic Schools of Racine.

To say that the past year has been challenging for many of our families is an understatement, and it was critical that we took this into account while discussing tuition increases. The Siena finance department, the finance committee of the Board of Directors, and I have been working together to strategize our tuition rates for the 2021-22 school year. These discussions allowed us to take a broader look at our tuition structure at Siena, the benefits of the Siena Promise – now known as the Siena Promise Scholarship -, the generosity of the St. Catherine’s Foundation, and the needs of our families.

Three major decisions have been made in regards to tuition:

  1. A 1% increase was approved, which equates to $35 for families with students in grades K3-8, and $100 for families with students in grades 9-12.
  2. The Siena Promise Scholarship, a $2,000 annual deduction for high school families whose children attended a Siena Catholic School or a religious education program at one of the 11 Siena parishes for three years or more, will be increased to $2,500 per student. This scholarship is made possible through the St. Catherine’s Foundation and other donors.
  3. A one-time COVID rebate of $50 per family will be applied to the tuition balance of those families who re-enroll their K3-8 students for the 2021-22 academic year.

Our goal is to provide an affordable pathway for all families and their students who seek a Catholic education, from kindergarten through high school. Therefore, it is our priority to make tuition even more affordable for our Siena grade school and religious education families, which in turn strengthens our system enrollment. 

Grades K3-8:              

$3,775 (2020-21 tuition)    $3,810 (2021-22 tuition)

  •   $50 (COVID rebate)
  •  $3,760 (2021-22 final – 1 child)
  • $5,665 (2021-22 final – 2 children)
  • $7,570 (2021-22 final – 3 children)
  • $9,475 (2021-22 final – 4 children)

There are a number of ways to help make Catholic education affordable and available for all families, including financial aid, work-study, scholarships, and tuition assistance. Please don’t hesitate to contact our Admissions Department at 262-812-0155 or your child’s principal for more information.

Sincerely,

Brenda White

President
