We are all living in an extraordinary time. To maintain quality education options online as well as in person this time period demands extensive adjustments. New technology and materials along with extensive measures for a completely safe environment are absolutely mandatory. St. Bede School meets the many challenges directly with your support in order to maintain a meaningful learning experience for our children, families, faculty and staff.
And, as always, parents recognize the importance of a strong faith based education to prepare children for success in college and in life. Nonetheless, there is no question that the cost of a Catholic education is a sacrifice for many families. Catholic schools are self-supported and not recipients of tax dollars or federal funding. St. Bede charges tuition to cover 70% of the operating expenses of the school. The remaining expenses are covered through a parish subsidy (up to 20%), fundraising, bequests and donations (10%). At St. Bede, we are proud to offer opportunities to make Catholic education possible for many children. We strive to see that no talented and motivated student is denied the opportunities afforded by a St. Bede education simply because the cost of that education may be a challenge for the student’s family.
