The Board of Trustees of Saint Viator High School agreed on a new policy at its April meeting, intended to make a Catholic school education more accessible for one of its most loyal constituents: Catholic school employees.
Trustees approved awarding up to a half tuition discount for the children of full-time Catholic school and parish educators working in local parishes and schools. The discount will go into effect for the 2015-2016 academic year.
“The tuition discount reflects our desire to reward people who devote themselves to Catholic education,” said President Fr. Corey Brost, C.S.V. “This is what it means to be Catholic. We take care of each other.”
Catholic school educators would receive an automatic discount on their tuition bill, depending on their years of service. Those with between one and two years of full-time employment would receive a 25 percent discount, while those with three to four years of full-time employment would receive a 33 percent discount. Those with five or more years of full-time employment would receive a 50 percent reduction in tuition cost, right off the top.
Together with the associates, brothers and priests of the Viatorian Community, trustees are driven to ensuring parents that students receive a quality Catholic education that integrates faith formation with academic excellence.
