School Tuition rates are based on student population, St. Patrick Parish and the Pittsburgh Diocese. St. Patrick Parish and the Pittsburgh Diocese pay a portion of the school expenses. Therefore each year the tuition rates fluctuate. For the last several years, the cost per full time Catholic student in a grade 1-8 has been roughly $3,000 per year. A Non-Catholic student pays a slightly higher rate.
There is always an opportunity to apply for Financial Aid.
Grants are available from the Bishop’s Education Fund (BEF). The BEF distribution depends on the market conditions. This Grant is only available to Catholic students in grades Kindergarten to 12 attending eligible schools and registered in eligible parishes.
Grants are available from the Scholastic Opportunity Scholarship Funds (SOS). The SOS program is open to any student in grades Pre-Kindergarten to 12 residing in PA and attending any eligible Catholic school in the Diocese of Pittsburgh.
In addition, St Patrick School has been fortunate to have received corporate tuition assistance donations for the past several years. This money is used to reduce family’s tuition rates.
