On an annual basis, the school will review the status of each family. A parishioner family shall be defined for purposes of enrollment priority and parishioner tuition rate as follows:
- Registered parishioner: A Catholic family registered in the parish.
- Participation in Sunday liturgy: A family actively participating in Sunday liturgy at St. Thomas. “Actively participating” is measured by worshipping at St. Thomas and contributing to St. Thomas by using the parish giving envelopes at least once each month as evidence of your presence, for the six months prior to application for the parish tuition rate.
- Time, Talent, and Treasure: A family practicing stewardship by sharing time, talent, and treasure that is consistent and confirmed through the use of parish envelopes, checks or direct debit for three months prior to application for the parish tuition rate.
A newly registered family transferring from another parish may be considered for the parish tuition rate by presenting a letter from their former pastor stating that they have been active in worship and sharing of time, talent, and treasure for at least three months prior to the transfer.
Families may be eligible for a discount if they are not members of St. Thomas but are active members in good standing at another parish. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
