I’m not ready to register yet, I still have some questions:
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.
What is the tuition to attend a Partnership school?
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.

Is there childcare available before school and afterschool?
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.
Is there transportation available?
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.
Do my children or I have to be Catholic?
No, Catholic Partnership Schools welcomes and is committed to serving children from all religious, cultural, and national backgrounds.
Do my children or I need to be citizens?
Do we have to be residents of Camden or Pennsauken?
Does my child have to go to the school closest to me?
No, You are welcome to apply to whichever CPS school seems like the best fit for your child and family.
Do you serve children with special needs?
It depends on the needs of your child. We do offer supportive services through the Camden County Educational Services Commission, family support services, and volunteers, but if a child needs significant support, we might not be the best option for him or her. An evaluation will be done when you apply and we will explain any decisions made.
