Prince of Peace Catholic School is a ministry of Prince of Peace Catholic Community. Since the community provides a significant portion of the expense of operating the school, parents are expected to participate in the community stewardship program in order to qualify for the Parishioner Tuition Rate.
Participation in the Prince of Peace Catholic Community Stewardship Program
A signed and submitted pledge card on file with the Parish
A minimum contribution of $1000 per calendar year per family
Please note that payments made to the school’s annual fund are not credited against the $1000 annual pledge to Prince of Peace Catholic Community.
Non-parishioner tuition rates will be assessed at the time of registration to those families that do not meet the above requirements.
Families may elect to pay tuition for an upcoming school year in one installment by April 1 for school year beginning in August
In early March, the school will issue an invoice advising of the payment amount and payment deadline
Families may elect to pay tuition for a school year in twelve (12) monthly installments commencing in May of each year
Monthly tuition payments will only be accepted through FACTS Management
Families will be provided with FACTS enrollment materials during the admissions process. It is the family’s responsibility to enroll in the FACTS Management Tuition Payment Program.
All families must sign an enrollment contract that guarantees the family will be responsible for the full tuition payment for the academic year.
Following the terms of the Enrollment Contract, refunds will be made only in accordance with the stated guidelines.
The tuition amount you are being asked to pay does not reflect the complete cost of educating your children. The actual cost per child is $9,375 (2020-21 school year). If your situation allows, please consider donating to the school's Annual Fund Campaign. It helps bridge the gap between the actual costs of education per child and the tuition reflected. The Annual Fund Campaign kicks-off in the fall. Donations are accepted at any time during the year. Commitments made in the fall are asked to be paid in full by the end of January.
Prince of Peace Catholic School recognizes that finances play a major role in your decision to enroll your child in a Catholic school. Although financial aid funds are limited, families should not be discouraged from applying to Prince of Peace because of financial reasons.
Financial aid is available on a limited basis. Tuition assistance is based upon the family’s financial need, as determined by FACTS and reviewed by a tuition assistance committee. Deliberations and decisions made by the committee are strictly confidential.
Tuition assistance is awarded annually, and all awards are made on a year-by-year basis. There is no guarantee that a student who receives assistance one year will be offered tuition assistance at the same or comparable levels in subsequent years. Tuition assistance must be applied for each year.
Admission and tuition assistance decisions are made independently. New applicants must have completed the admissions process in order to be considered for tuition assistance. Current students applying for assistance must be in good standing to be considered for awards.
How to Apply for Tuition Assistance:
Complete the FACTS online application for Grant and Aid. The deadline to apply is April 1, although we encourage everyone to apply during the Diocesan Priority Application Round (Nov 1-Jan 5).
The Dallas Diocesan Halo Initiative was established for the purpose of providing tuition assistance to parents who desire to educate their children in a Catholic elementary and/or secondary school owned and operated by the Diocese of Dallas or one of its parishes.
Applying for aid through The Halo Initiative is simple and doesn’t require a separate application. Just complete the FACTS Grant & Aid application for the Catholic School you plan to attend.
To be eligible for tuition assistance, an applicant must:
- Demonstrate financial need.
- Meet the school’s entrance requirements.
- Be current with all financial obligations due to any Catholic school within the diocese.
