St. Michael Catholic Steward Tuition Rate
The StMS Catholic Steward Tuition Rate is designed to support Catholic families in our St. Michael Parish community through a tuition discount. Catholic Steward families are those who are dedicated to raising their children in the Catholic faith and are active in the parish community. We work hard to recognize these families' contributions to our parish by making Catholic education more affordable. These active families attend Sunday Mass regularly and serve in the community through the gifts of time, talent, and treasure, and we are grateful for their dedication. View our St. Michael Catholic Steward Tuition Rate webpage to learn more about the guidelines and to apply for this rate.
Families of other (local or out-of-state) Catholic parishes with students enrolling in St. Michael School should also view St. Michael Catholic Steward Tuition Rate webpage to learn details about what is needed for your family to apply for the stewardship rate.
