Tuition at St. Alphonsus, as with most Catholic schools, does not cover the full cost of education. Contributions to our annual fundraisers represent several ways families, friends, and community members can support our school and our students. We are grateful for the continued generosity from our Community, School, and Parish members that support our mission.
Fundraising is an important and essential activity that helps to ensure the financial health of St. Alphonsus Parish School. Monies raised through these activities help the school fund salaries, programs, and supplies while maintaining affordable tuition rates.
Accordingly, each family has pledged to participate in these fundraising activities at the indicated minimum levels.
