_______________________________________________

We understand that things have been difficult through the pandemic, and it has affected many families economically, so we have decided that our tuition will remain the same as the previous year:

2022-2023 Tuition rates are TBA. But to get an idea...

THE TUITION RATE in 2021-2022 was $100 per child for all programs;
Price breaks for families are applicable ONLY 
if all of your children are in the same program:
      One child $100
      Two children $175
      Three children $225
      Four or more children $275
Examples:
• If you have 3 children in Generations of Faith, your tuition is $225.
 If you have 3 children, but one is in Disciple Camp, one is in the HS Summer Program, and one is in a Weekly Program, your tuition is $300 ($100 per child, per program).

Non Parishioner rate is $250 per student.

Please register ASAP to enable us to order you child's books and materials. If you have special circumstances and cannot make payment for registration, please contact our office as soon as possible. Ready to register?  Please go back to our Home Page for Registration Links.

Registration Concerns · FAQ
Tight budget?
Please know that no family will be prevented from attending classes because of inability to pay. Please contact the FFF Office at 688-5760 for information.

Schedule concerns? Don't wait...save a spot!
To make sure we have enough trained catechists, please do not wait for school, dance or sports teams to release their schedule before you register for FFF classes. It is easier for us to make necessary schedule changes for a student who is already registered than to find space for a student who waited to register after the classes have been established.

Missed last year?
Please contact the FFF Office at 688-5760 as soon as possible so we can help you catch them up over the summer.

What happens if we must close again?
While we are remaining positive and encouraged, we are certainly prepared to offer alternative options if needed.

IMPORTANT: One issue we tend to have with online registration is that families hit "submit" multiple times. We want you to be aware that this can cause your card to be charged each time, and then we need to process a refund. Please hit "submit" one time only. If you feel there is a problem with the registration going through, call the office right away. We will take your information and verify your spot in your chosen program.

We appreciate all your patience through this difficult period. Please feel free to contact Michael Ruszala if you have any questions or concerns at mruszala@stgregs.org
