Tuition Gap

The cost of educating your daughter(s) is greater than the tuition charged, resulting in a "gap". This gap or difference is met through Annual Fund contributions. This tax deductible amount is now included in your FACTS tuition billing statement, and payments are divided evenly over the terms of your payment schedule. The tuition gap amount will be available in April. If you are not able to pay the "gap" or would like to change it to a different amount, please contact Ms. Lisa Cuppy at (314) 394-4884 or lcuppy@sja1840.org. by April 30th in order to adjust your tuition bill prior to finalization. We understand the sacrifices you make to send your daughter(s) to St. Joseph's Academy. Thank you for all that you do to support our school.
