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.


For Kindergarten-8th grade, our parents pay, on average, about $130 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.  Our pre-k tuition is higher than our K-8 tuition because of the requirements of our licensing.  Parents can expect to pay $150 per week, unless they are eligible for a childcare subsidy from the State of NJ.

You’ll need to provide the following documents to the school:
  • Registration Forms (found above)
  • School Tuition and Fees Agreement (found above)
  • Up-to-date Immunization Records

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.

It depends on the needs of your child.

Catholic Partnership Schools runs extra-curricular activities open to students from all of our campuses. Our current offerings are: aviation, choir, instrumental music, basketball, cross country, flag football, track, and robotics/stem. The age that students need to be to participate depends on the activity, but we have offerings for students from all grades. Transportation is provided if the activity is immediately after school.  Parents must provide transportation to most evening or weekend activities.

Yes, we do!  Parents may apply for the free and reduced lunch program at the start of each school year.  Students who do not qualify may either bring a lunch or pay a small fee to each the school lunch.  Students who prefer food from home may bring their own lunches.
Each of our schools has a slightly different uniform and some of what is required depends on the season and the child's age.  Parents should expect to spend about $100 to $150 buying a complete school uniform and gym uniform when their child first enrolls.  Parents can purchase uniforms at Uniform City and Risse Brothers.  Our schools themselves often have gently worn uniforms at a discounted price.
