Tuition & Fees

For the 2024-2025 school year, tuition will increase by $375, and the school fee will remain at the same rate as it was for the 2023-2024 school year. As such, tuition for the 2024-2025 school year will be $10,225, and the school fee will be $1,850.
 
In determining the tuition and school fee, it is important for families to know that we do our best to strike a balance between affordability and providing the maximum number of learning opportunities for all students. 


The first tuition payment for the 2024-2025 school year will be due in June of 2024. PJP uses FACTS for processing tuition and school fees. FACTS charges a $42 annual enrollment fee for its monthly payment plan and a $15 annual enrollment fee for its monthly payment plan. There is NO annual enrollment fee for families who make payments in full for a given school year. Additionally, families who sign up to make automatic payments each month through FACTS will receive a $125 discount to their overall tuition. This discount will be applied to the last payment of the 2024-2025 school year.
 
On behalf of the faculty, staff and administration of PJP who are committed to providing each and every student with a quality educational experience in a faith-based environment with a goal of having each student become the best version of themselves, we thank you for your continued commitment to and belief in Catholic education.

  • Tuition & school fees will be billed over 11 months from June through April. 

  • Families that make all payments via automatic deduction will receive a $125 credit at the end of the school year.

  • There is an annual fee of $42 for a monthly payment plan, $15 for a semi-annual payment plan, and no charge for payments made in full for the year.

  • Tuition monthly payments can be set for the 1st or 15th of the month.

The Office of Catholic Education has outsourced its tuition and fees system to FACTS. Once you have set up an account with you will be able to:

  • Select whether you will pay annually, quarterly, or monthly

  • Select whether your monthly payment will be done on the 1st of the month or the 15th of the month.

  • Select your preference for invoices - emailed invoices or paper invoices

  • Set up automatic payments from your bank account, credit card, etc...
