Your tuition cost is only part of the total picture. The actual K-8 per pupil cost at Holy Family-Holy Name School is over $6,300.00 per child. These expenses are met through:

  • Tuition
  • Fundraising
  • Parish/Diocesan Financial Aid

Parish Financial Aid:
Parents who enroll their child in the school of any Catholic parish may request financial assistance from their home parish. If you request and receive this financial assistance, you may deduct $300 per child from your total tuition.

Financial Aid:
Need-based financial assistance for Kindergarten through Grade 8 is available through F.A.C.E. (Foundation for the Advancement of Catholic Education), administered by the Diocese of Fall River.
Also, the Catholic School’s Hope and Opportunity Initiative, sponsored by the Carney Family Fund, will provide 100 scholarships for up to $2000 per student for the 2017-18 school year to new low-income K-8 students in the Fall River and New Bedford Deaneries. Please contact Linda Boswell in our school office at 508-993-3547 or to request an application.

Registration Fee (annual fee per student) = $ 175

Fundraising Assessment Fee:
May be met by participating in fundraisers of your choice throughout the year. Each fundraising activity that you participate in contributes a specific

The Fundraising Assessment may also be paid to the school without fundraising involvement, if a family desires. It may also be budgeted monthly ($27 per month) along with your monthly tuition payment. The Fundraising Assessment is due in full by May 23, 2018 for all grades.
