Investing in your child and their education
We are a parish school and want parish families to be able to send their children to OLG School. If you are interested, scroll down to learn more about Multi-Student Discounts and Financial Aid at OLG School.
The parish investment rate is $5,425
The Standard Tuition Rate is $7,025
Families who actively support the parish qualify for the Parish Investment Rate. Specifically, these families:
are registered members of Our Lady of Grace Parish;
have committed to actively share in the faith life of the parish by attending liturgies;
volunteer time and talent in parish ministries or activities; and
financially support the work of the parish and invest in the parish through envelope giving or other unrestricted, traceable financial contributions to the parish.
With the 2018-19 school year, we are excited to introduce a multi-student discount to all OLG families with 3 or more students that are concurrently enrolled at OLG in a given academic year! A 10% discount will be applied on the tuition due for the third student enrolled, a 25% discount for the fourth student enrolled, and a 50% discount for the fifth and any additional students enrolled. This will be reflected in Smart Tuition.
Families who intend to enroll their child/children for part of the year must pay a full year’s tuition. Contact the school office for complete details of our Tuition Policy.
Tuition Payment Plans
The mission of Our Lady of Grace Parish is to provide a Catholic school open to all parishioners. OLG has scholarship funds available, and strongly encourages scholarship applications based on financial need.
Families are now able to apply for Financial Aid for the 2019-20 school year. OLG is now using the TADS company to process financial aid applications. Here are instructions on how to apply. Here is a worksheet to help with preparing your application. Applications for current families are due by February 17.
The Aim Higher Foundation provides two scholarships for students to attend a Catholic school in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. The application period for scholarships for the 2019-20 academic year closes February 17, 2019. We aim to award the scholarships and notify families and schools by March 13, 2019. Details of the scholarships and how to apply can be found HERE.
Fundraising and Volunteering
There is no fundraising or volunteering requirement in addition to tuition. However, like most schools, OLG relies on fundraising as an important part of the annual budget. Families are asked to participate in fundraisers such as Marathon to the extent their finances allow.
