How Do I Register?

Here is a list of our FAQs.  If you don’t see your question here, please feel free to call us at 856-966-6791.  

Thanks to the generosity of many supporters, EVERY student begins with a scholarship to attend our schools.  After that, additional financial aid may be awarded, based on family income and number of enrolled children. In order to receive this additional financial aid, parents must complete a Financial Aid Application/Solicitud de Ayuda Financiera and return it with supporting documents to the school that they’re applying to.  80% of parents receive extra assistance.


On average, Catholic Partnership parents pay about $120 per month.  But the tuition range is between $100 (the minimum) to $550 (the maximum) per month, depending on your income and number of students you enroll.

  • Registration Forms (found above)

  • To enroll in Kindergarten, a child must turn 5 before September 30th of their Kindergarten year.

Yes, each of the schools offers before and after school programs for their students.  Start and end times vary depending on the school, but in general children can arrive from 7am until school starts and can be picked up until 5:30pm.  An extra fee is charged for this service, and NJ Childcare subsidies are accepted.


Students are eligible to receive transportation to go to our schools if they live more than 2 miles from the school, or if their route to school crosses major highways.  However, sometimes bus companies are not able to provide the service to our students due to circumstances beyond our control.  In that case, parents will receive a transportation subsidy to help cover the costs of arranging transportation on their own.
