Tuition Rates for the 2024-25 School Year: Kindergarten through 8th Grade

Tuition for Kindergarten through 8th grade is $3,925 per student for the 2024-25 school year. This tuition price includes the registration fee.

The actual cost to educate each student at SPSL is $7,572 for the 2024-25 school year. St. Pius X / St. Leo School provides a subsidy of $3,647 to every student (48% of the total cost to educate each student).  This subsidy is funded by the strong support of St. Pius X and St. Leo the Great Parishes, as well as fundraising and gifts from school parents and other generous benefactors in our school community.

Bridge the Gap Initiative

To support the cost to educate each student, St. Pius X / St. Leo School families are asked to participate in the Bridge the Gap initiative, or contribute through their Sunday and Holy Day giving to make up the difference between the tuition price and the cost to educate. Both school and parish families are asked to consider contributing to the Bridge the Gap initiative.
