2020-2021 Holy Name Tuition Statement
Dear Holy Name Families,
The Holy Name Finance Committee has approved a tuition increase of about 3.8% for the  2020-2021 academic school year. This tuition increase is comparable for the surrounding schools and keeps our tuition and fees near the center of the local Catholic schools. Thanks to your participation in our various fundraisers we are able to keep our tuition increase low as we continue to offer a variety of programs and tools to our students. 
As  tuition rises so does Holy Name's investment in our staff, technology, and new programs. Your  tuition increase will go towards the 4% salary increase for our faculty and their related benefit increases; and help to offset some of our ongoing technology and program cost renewal increases.
We will be continuing to utilize ALEKS and STMath, adaptive math programs for our students to enhance the math curriculum; as well as Lexia, a literacy program for our Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grade Classrooms. No Red Ink, a grammar and writing adaptive program, has also been integrated into the intermediate grade curriculum. Our teachers find these programs to be extremely valuable to student growth and individualization. There is also a strong correlation between a rise in our math and reading STAR results throughout the year with the implementation of these individualized and technological programs. 

Our school enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year will remain at a very healthy number. We do not anticipate the need for additional desks or furniture for the classrooms, but having the funds to replace desks or chairs if needed is a necessity. 

This school year we introduced a new K-5th grade math series, K-8th Family Life series, and 3rd-5th and 6th-8th Science series of textbooks. Tuition costs for next year will include the purchase of a new Social Studies/History series that is needed for our 2nd through 8th graders.

We look forward to continuing our many unique program offerings as well as introducing new materials and technology for our 2020-2021 school year!

Holy Name has worked hard to keep this year's  tuition increase at a modest level, and we will continue to do so as we plan for the future.  We are very excited that the extra $30 a month in  tuition will allow us to bring these additional opportunities to you and your children.
