It has never been easier for Ohioans to invest in Catholic education. The average cost to educate a single child within the Archdiocese of Cincinnati is $7,500. Affordable tuition is achievable for families through generous support from the Ohio Department of Education & Workforce, the Catholic Education Foundation, Tri-County Catholics parishioners, and other private entities.
St. Michael Parish School tuition funds high-level educational opportunities, the hiring and retention of talented faculty and staff, and maintenance of our campus. When a student experiences St. Michael Parish School's curriculum, faith-filled community, programs and resources, they leave prepared for high school and life beyond. Our strategically small class sizes encourage relationships with peers and adult leaders.
Method of Payment St. Michael Parish School uses FACTS Management Company to process tuition payments. All new parents are required to create a FACTS account to remit tuition. Parents may choose annual, semi-annual or monthly payment plans. Semi-annual and monthly payers must set up their FACTS accounts for payments via debits from their bank account or charges on their credit card.
All students who attend St. Michael Parish School receive one or more levels of financial assistance.
