Support our School

A. Tuition

Tuition and fees cover approximately 79% of the school’s costs to educate children. This 79% is paid by the parents. St. Angela’s ability to collect this 68% demonstrates financial stability as a school that is important to the community and supported by the community. Thus parents at St. Angela’s receive 21% financial assistance to educate their children.

The SMART Tuition Company collects our tuition and is the tuition company used by all of the schools in our region. If you are returning to St. Angela’s you are automatically re enrolled in SMART. You will be billed by SMART for the enrollment fee of $40. Tuition is NOT accepted at the school for the safety and security of the children and staff. Participation in the program is a requirement for attendance.

The school retains the right to withhold academic records and report cards, and to deny entry to class for students when their accounts are in arrears for tuition and / or fees.
