Tuition covers a majority of the expenses of a school day excluding lunch and a few specific fees listed below:

$75 Registration Fee:  Once accepted to Faithful Shepherd, a $75 per family registration annual fee along with a non-refundable $400 tuition deposit, per student, is due. Deposits are applied toward tuition for the upcoming school year, but are non-refundable if a student withdraws.

$100 Activity Fee: We encourage our teachers to provide supplemental educational opportunities unique to their classrooms, and we have worked to develop school-wide programs to help our students achieve their potential.  To support these initiatives, a nominal activity fee of $100 (2019-2020) covers student expenses such as:
  • Technology
  • Student planners
  • Auction projects
  • Classroom parties
  • Field day
  • Art Adventure
  • Catholic Schools Week
$170 Chromebook Fee (2019-2020): This fee is for Middle School students only and covers the annual lease of Chromebooks which are issued to each student in Middle School.
