Today's video announcements:

Announcements for today:
-Please see info below about FACTS enrollment fee for the year which will be deducted on June 12. This is not the re-enrollment fee typically collected by HCA for the coming school year. That fee has been waived for returning families for the 2020-2021 school year.

-Tomorrow I will send two videos attached to the daily announcements. One will be recognition of Noble Crusaders. The other video will be a presentation of end-of-year awards for students.

-I'll have a letter for parents tomorrow about the opening of the 2020-2021 school year and what will factor into making the decision about how school will open.

-Get excited! We will make our HCA Talent Show available for viewing beginning tomorrow.

-Students have until tomorrow to complete any work that they have for trimester three.

- Click here to sign up for drop off/pick up of materials June 8 + 9. The times are organized by first letter of students last names. If you cannot make it to school on one of those two days, please contact Mrs. Burke at bburke@holycrossweb.com to make other arrangements.

-HCA Faculty and Staff will recognize our 8th grade students with a "drive through" recognition on Tuesday, June 9 at 11:30 a.m.

Info Regarding FACTS
Families should be receiving email notifications from FACTS for their 2020-21 tuition. These emails were automatically generated when tuition was entered into FACTS this week. Your account will be charged the FACTS enrollment fee of $50 on June 12. 

Please review your tuition charges carefully.   Make sure that your parishioner status is correct and notify us of any changes. HCA families with students in the elementary school and preschool will receive a 10% discount off their preschool tuition. This discount has been added to your FACTS account. Your payment plan has carried over from last year. If you were on the 10-payment plan last year, you will be on the same plan this year. If you were on the full-payment plan last year, you will be on the same payment plan this year. You can make changes to your FACTS account if needed. We no longer offer the 9-payment plan for preschool families. This is the only change to payment plans. 

The first tuition payment will be due in August , the same as in previous years. Our process and due dates have not changed.

Financial aid has not yet been awarded and is not yet reflected in your tuition account. We hope to have those award decisions by July 1. We are still waiting to receive information from the Office of Catholic Schools on scholarship funds. 

If you have any questions, please contact Kathy Whetzel at  hcabookkeeper@holycrossweb.com .

  • Build up the Spirit-filled faith community within Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Parish;
  • Serve those in need in our local community and in the Missions through an awareness of our global responsibility to all humanity;
  • Develop the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, academically and physically;
