Important Tuition Information for the 2017-2018 School Year

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Thank you for your commitment to Catholic education and to Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School. We are dedicated to providing a quality education for our young women. Our mission clearly defines a partnership with parents and values your affirmation of a lifetime advantage for young women.

At the March 2017 meeting of the Board of Trustees, the school's operational plan for the fiscal year 2017-2018 was approved. The plan is the result of careful review by Administration and the Finance Committee of the Board. Incorporated in the plan are funds designed to meet the operating needs of the school, enhance the academic program, and meet capital expenditures. Later this month, we will send out additional information regarding tuition payment with the tuition payment coupons. The tuition charge for the 2017-2018 school year will increase by $450 to $11,550. The first tuition installment is due July 1, 2017. It is important to note that this tuition fee does not fully cover the cost incurred by the school to educate each student. Support from generous donors helps to make up the deficit of nearly 16 percent, allowing us to keep tuition as low as possible.

Mother McAuley Liberal Arts High School recognizes our responsibility to provide you with a school of excellence, and we strive to exceed your expectations. We deeply appreciate your support of our school during these very important years of your daughter's academic, social, moral, and spiritual growth. Every school year holds countless opportunities and possibilities for our young women. We are grateful for your assistance and look forward to welcoming your daughter(s) in August.
