Re-enrollment begins for the 2024-2025 School Year
We are excited that the re-enrollment process begins today for our current school parents. Today in the Red Envelope, school families will receive a hard copy of the instructions for re-enrolling for 2024-25 school year. You will also find the instructions below in today's bulletin.
The deadline to complete your re-enrollment is February 12 – you won’t want to procrastinate since current families who re-enroll by the 12th save $125 on their registration fee and will be guaranteed a spot for next year. Don’t delay because we have many prospective new families wanting to join the St. Louise community and we will begin accepting new students shortly after February 12.
I know that enrolling your child at St. Louise is a big commitment of both time and treasure for your family. Here are some reasons why St. Louise School is worth it!
#5 – More than just the 3 “R’s” your children learn at any school (Reading, ‘Riting, ‘Rithmetic), at St. Louise they learn a total of 6 “R’s”, as we are able to add Religion, Respect, Responsibility.
#4 – St. Louise graduates are accepted to the finest high schools and are well prepared for the rigors of secondary education.
#3 – Paying for your child to be educated at St. Louise is a sound investment in your child’s future.
#2 – The St. Louise teachers and staff are second-to-none in the skills they bring to their jobs and the concern they have for your kids.
And the #1 reason you should re-enroll your children in St. Louise is…
#1 - Christ is the reason for our school. He is the unseen but ever-present teacher in every classroom. He is the model for our faculty and the inspiration for our students.
In addition to receiving your re-enrollment instructions today, I would like to provide information on applying for a tuition assistance grant. Please go HERE for tuition assistance information.
We certainly wouldn’t want a family to choose to not return to St. Louise School simply due to the assumption that it might be impossible on the family budget to pay tuition. We purposely work at building up our tuition assistance account exactly for this reason of making sure a family who desires a Catholic school education can get financial help if they are facing a difficult financial situation. Thanks to generous contributions from school supporters such as many school parents, our Father Phil Wallace Tuition Assistance Endowment Fund is around $2,700,000, and thus is generating enough interest income each year for us to be able to provide financial aid to over 10% of our student population.
Besides scholarships helping to make St. Louise accessible, we are proud that our 2024-2025 tuition rates continue to be one of the most affordable Catholic or private school educations on the Eastside! With this welcome news, I hope you won’t delay in finishing your re-enrollment paperwork and paying your $125 re-application fee by the deadline of February 12th. Again, please realize that after the 12th, we’ll start filling open roster spaces to newly enrolling families, and the fee increases to $250.
Congratulations in your wise investment in your children’s future by re-enrolling them for a St. Louise School Catholic education!

Update on School Personnel
Another update in terms of School Personnel is that Mrs. Sharilyn Lux will be stepping down as Junior High Spanish Teacher at the end of the school year. We will be looking for a Grades 6-8 Spanish Teacher in the next few months and we want to thank Mrs. Lux for starting the Spanish program at St. Louise. The message below is from Mrs. Lux:
I have been so blessed with the experience of starting the St. Louise Spanish program in the Junior High at St. Louise as an optional elective. It has filled my heart with joy to grow with the program to the current level of 3 years of required Spanish and introducing Spanish Club to St. Louise. It is a pleasure to work with such a fantastic team of dynamic individuals. I am excited for where God’s plan takes me.
Mrs. Sharilyn Lux
Have a blessed weekend,
Mr. Mike Fuerte
