The Diocese of Orlando tracks each Catholic school’s tuition from reports pulled from the FACTS Tuition Management Program. ALL families MUST enroll in the FACTS tuition management account.
Saint Joseph Catholic School Board has adopted a policy that outlines payment procedure to ensure that all tuition & fees owed to the School will be collected in a timely manner, thereby allowing the School to meet its financial obligations in an efficient and businesslike manner.
Any check written to Saint Joseph Catholic School that is returned for non-sufficient funds will be charged a $15.00 fee to cover the bank fee charged the School.
Three payment plans are available:
- Full payment-FACTS can take the annual tuition payment on July 2; there is no enrollment fee for this payment option. If you pay in full directly to the school before July 1st by cash, check, credit card or money order, the school will advise FACTS that you are paid in full so that the FACTS report to the Diocese will be accurate.
- Half payments-FACTS will take the half tuition payment on July 2 and on January 2. There is a $10.00 enrollment fee for this payment option; this fee is taken 10 business days after enrollment is finalized. If you pay half payments directly to the school on July 1 and January 1 by cash, check, credit card or money order, the school will advise FACTS that you have paid so that the FACTS report to the Diocese will be accurate.
- Monthly or Quarterly payments-Monthly tuition may only be made through the FACTS Tuition Management Plan. There is a $38.00 enrollment fee; this fee is taken 10 business days after enrollment is finalized.
Payments are budgeted according to how you set up your account. Tuition is withdrawn on the 2nd or 17th of the month & must be paid in full by the end of June.
If you pay tuition through FACTS and you change the account from which tuition payments are taken, please notify the School office at least 5 business days prior to your scheduled withdrawal. Also, if you know that you will not have sufficient funds in your account at the time of your scheduled withdrawal, please call the School office at least 5 business days ahead of your scheduled withdrawal.
A failed tuition payment through FACTS is charged a $ 30.00 fee by FACTS and will be added to your FACTS account balance.Any family who is 2 months delinquent with their tuition payments will be contacted by the Principal and given 15 days to update their payments. If satisfactory arrangements are not made within a 15 day period, the Principal will see that the family involved is informed that their child may no longer attend classes at St. Joseph Catholic School. The registration and instructional fees are part of the total tuition and are nonrefundable.
Consequence of Non Payment
Students will not be permitted to take exams or re-register for the succeeding semester until all outstanding debts, including tuition, have been satisfied. Eighth Grade Graduates will not walk with their graduation class unless all delinquent accounts have been satisfied. This policy will be administered by the School Administration.
Delinquent payment notices will be sent out and it is expected that a delinquent tuition situation will be cleared by prompt payment of the outstanding balance. However, it is recognized that circumstances may occasionally prevent prompt payment. These situations should be acknowledged and brought to the immediate attention of the Principal, so that a reasonable solution can be reached.
