We are blessed to have a long tradition of Catholic Education with St. John the Baptist School, dating back over 150 years! Our mission is, as it has been through the decades, to provide a High Quality Academic Education within a Catholic Environment. Indeed, we have a precious gift to our children in Alden and the surrounding communities in our school!
We know that making this choice can sometimes be difficult financially, but we wholeheartedly believe that it is an investment in your child's future, in developing their "whole self" - which will prepare them greatly for the world, and help them to change it for the better! Our school offers very competitive rates in this area; an affordable alternative with excellent small class size advantages.
Please talk confidentially with our School Principal, Mrs. Johnson about any financial challenges you might have that may be a determining factor in joining our School Family here at St. John's!
2019-2020 Tuition & Fee Policy
In addition to the stated tuition and fees, a minimum of thirty (30) hours of active participation in school and fundraising events and/or other designated school promoting activities are expected of each family in Pre-K-4 to Grade 8 and ten (10) hours for families in Pre-K 3. This involvement in school activities is not only an essential service for the school, but also helps to foster a sense of community within our School Family. There are so many ways you can help - from events to specific needs for the School, and you can help out all at once for an event or a little at a time over the School Year! Should a family choose not to participate in this service requirement, a $300 non-activity fee for K-8 families and $100 non-activity fee for Pre-K families will be added to the tuition charge in June. Families who complete less than the required hours will be billed for the remaining balance of their hours in June.
