Tuition Discount Referral Program
As a reminder, St. Mary's High School has a tuition discount referral program. The specifics of the program are as follows.
The program is open to all St. Mary's families (including grandparents) and St. Mary's employees.
Maximum discount is up to $2,000 per new family referred, not per new student referred.
There is no limit to the number of new families who may be referred to St. Mary's.
In the event that the cumulative tuition discounts exceed the referring family's total cost to educate, the remaining referral discount may be directed toward another family's tuition or to the financial aid program.
Referred families must be new to St. Mary's High School.
Siblings of current families and students at our K-8 partner schools are not eligible.
Discount may be applied at the end of the referring family's current year tuition, applied to another family's tuition, or credited to the financial aid program.
Referred families must complete the admission process and be accepted for enrollment.
Referred families must be enrolled and in good standing through the first day of their second semester at St. Mary's.
St. Mary's reserves the right to change the provisions of the program at any time.
