St. Anthony of Padua School depends on the financial support of alumni, parents, and friends to continue the outstanding tradition of Catholic education and to support our mission of forming life long disciples in service to church and society. While it costs over $8,000 a year to educate one student, we charge a little over $6,000 in order to keep our rates affordable for families. What makes up the difference?
- Contributions from our parishes toward maintaining our school facilities.
- PTO sponsored fundraising activities to support programs and student activities.
- Donations from friends and supporters for specific areas like technology, textbooks and facilities improvements.
- School family donation of 20 hours of volunteer service per year.
Our families also receive tuition assistance to help them afford our tuition, as we try to make Catholic education affordable for as many families as possible. Tuition assistance to families is provided by:
- Our parish
- The Diocese of Arlington (made possible through the Bishop’s Lenten Appeal)
- The Diocesan Foundation
Our Catholic faith is the foundation of the St. Anthony School experience. Our students attend weekly masses and receive frequent visits from the pastors and parish priests. Our school provides many opportunities for students to help those in need in our community.
We provide our students with a strong academic background in a faith-based environment. Our long history of academic and social excellence is well-known in the diocese. Many of the area high schools are able to identify our alumni because of their strong skills in the core subjects of English, math, and science.
