We understand this fair question. We know you work hard to send your child(ren) to St. Alphonsus Catholic School, and for that, we are eternally grateful! The actual cost to educate a student at St. Alphonsus Catholic School is over $8,000. With tuition at $4,000 for K-8th grade (with over 60% of students receiving additional financial assistance), we need to make up the difference with fundraising on an annual basis. We are asking each student to try to achieve the per student goal of $180, with an overall goal of $27,000. Every dollar we collect – we keep. ALL donations are 100% tax deductible!
