Tuition and Scholarships
Tuition for the 2017-2018 school year is: $2,600 for the first child, $2,200 for the second child, $1,900 for the third child, $1,700 for the fourth child, and $1,600 for the fifth child. There is a $100 registration fee due at the time of enrollment.
STAA is established and subsidized by the members of Immaculate Conception, Nativity of the Lord, Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. Augustine, St. Paul, and St. Veronica parishes--known as the six cluster parishes--to assist parents in fulfilling their responsibility to raise their children in the Catholic faith. While parish membership is not a requirement admission or tuition rates, STAA encourages families to be an active and participating member of one of the six cluster parishes.
Tuition rates include, but are not limited to: textbooks, consumables, a gym shirt, and most standard field trip fees.
All children should have an opportunity to receive an exceptional education and we are proud to offer parental choice programs.

Scholarships and Grants
St. Gerard Scholarship: The St. Gerard Fund was established in 1997 with the proceeds from the sale of the St. Gerard property and the closing of the parish. The parishioners of St. Gerard established the fund to provide grade school scholarships for Catholic school students in a defined area surrounding the St. Gerard facility. Scholarships are awarded based on volunteerism, demonstrated academic achievement or demonstrated effort by the student, and special financial needs of the student's family. Each year, the St. Gerard Scholarship Fund awards $500 to selected students in grades 1 through 8. Applications are accepted during the spring.
George and Mary Kremer Foundation Grant: STAA has been the recipient of a grant from the George and Mary Kremer Foundation in Naples, Florida for the past few years. The Kremer family is a strong supporter of Catholic education in the United States and we are fortunate to be one of only 318 schools selected to receive this grant. The grant is open to all registered school families who meet the income criteria as stated on the application. Applications are accepted during spring.
