The educational cost to educate a student at St. Dominic Catholic School continues to rise, just as our expenses for utilities, transportation, instructional materials, salaries and benefits, and building maintenance continue to rise. In order to continue to provide an excellent educational experience for your child, tuition rates rise for each coming year. Historically, the tuition increase has been less than 4%, and that is what we are anticipating for the 2017-18 school year, as well. Exact tuition rates will be calculated near mid-February when the budget will be complete.
