Financial Aid:

“The mission of St. Mary of the Angels School is to work collaboratively with parents, the primary educators of their children, to provide for the spiritual, intellectual, moral and physical development of our students.” In keeping with the spirit of our mission, the administration of St. Mary of the Angels School works with our families to meet the needs of every student. We strive to maintain affordable tuition rates for all families so that no child is refused a quality Catholic education due to financial need. Our annual K-8 per-student cost of $8,175 exceeds what we require in tuition, meaning every student attending St. Mary of the Angels school receives some assistance from our generous benefactors. The policies outlined below are for families seeking further tuition assistance. Applications for tuition assistance are only accepted after a family has registered for and been accepted to St. Mary of the Angels School. In adherence to the policies and mandates of the Archdiocese of Chicago, all families must contribute monetarily, to some degree, to their child(ren)’s Catholic education. Full tuition assistance is not available in order to accommodate all school families seeking assistance.

Mandatory Fundraising Fee:

Each family is required to contribute an annual amount of $250. All annual contributions are due by May 30, 2017. For families on the 10-month payment plan, any unpaid fundraising contribution balance will be added to the final tuition payment. Payment of these fees can be made directly or through authorized school fundraising events.

Mandatory Volunteer Service Hours:

Each family is asked to volunteer 12 hours of their time to make Saint Mary of the Angels a great school for their children. If unable to complete these service hours, families may opt to pay for the time. Each hour of volunteer service is valued at $15. Families may pay for all or any portion of the volunteer service hours.
