Admission Process

Our process beings with a short application to tell us about your student and family. Once reviewed and considered, you will be notified via email of our decision based on space. If accepted, you will receive an email with our enrollment packet link to be submitted with a $100 registration fee.

We encourage families to enroll early, as we often have wait lists in several grades. Applications are considered in the following order based on available space:
1. Little Flower and Our Lady of Lourdes parish families
2. Catholic Families from other parishes (typically without elementary schools)
3. Non-Catholic families of other faiths who desire a Catholic education

Frequently asked questions


Private schools are funded and supported through tuition, fund-raising, endowment and grants. Each school is responsible for the total cost of education. Therefore, each family who chooses Catholic education should consider the payment of tuition a responsibility and a priority.

Tuition is determined each year by the St. Benedict Catholic School Board of Trustees based on the projected per pupil cost and the amount of financial support from both Our Lady of Lourdes and Little Flower parishes. To be eligible for sponsorship from the parishes, families must be registered and make a commitment to worship regularly with the parish community and to contribute time, talent and treasure in support of the life of the parish. Families who are not registered members of either parish will be charged a tuition rate that is more closely aligned with the full per pupil cost. Each parish determines its policies for financial assistance. Parents should contact the school principal for information related to other resources of assistance.

How much is tuition?

There is also a $100 Non-Refundable Registration Fee  per family due at the time of registration or the registration will be considered incomplete. We also have a $125 Technology Fee due before the start of the next school year.
