Parishioner Discount
Registered and active parishioners of Richmond Diocese Parishes receive a $750 discount off tuition for each child enrolled in K-12 at Roanoke Catholic School.

Tuition for Siblings
A family is charged graded tuition for a maximum of three children in grades K-12. For the second child, deduct $250 from that child’s total tuition; for the third child, deduct $500 from that child’s total tuition; for the fourth and additional siblings, excluding Pre-K, pay a flat rate of $750 each.

Tuition is prorated from the start date for those who enroll after the first day of school.

FEES 2020-2021

Grades K-12:

  • $15.00 non-refundable enrollment fee.
  • $200.00 deposit, which includes a per family $150.00 Technology fee that helps fund enhanced access to, and use of, technology in the classrooms. The balance of this deposit is applied to a family’s total tuition bill for 2019-2020.
  • New K-12 families must also pay a $150.00 on-boarding fee.

Pre-K (3 and 4):

  • $85.00 registration fee per Pre-K student and a $150 technology fee per family.

New families needing financial aid would ideally apply by March 1, 2019, to receive optimum aid, although some aid may be available after that date. (See Financial Aid below.)

Other Fees

Depending on your child’s year in school and/or extracurricular or academic interests, other fees may include — but are not limited to — athletic fees ($100.00 per child per sport), class dues, uniform expenses, art supplies, etc. Cafeteria expenses are NOT included in tuition. Students may purchase meals at school or may pack.


Financial Aid is need-based and available for all families, regardless of religious affiliation, with students in Grades Pre-K-12. Interested families are encouraged to apply online from the RCS website (FACTS icon). FACTS applications and supporting documents must be received and verified by March 1, 2019, for returning students (except second round). Second-round financial aid is primarily for families with business income or families accepted after March 1. (Some funds are set aside for second round.) Following the above guidelines, these applications are due June 1. Financial aid can be applied for after June 1, although funds may not be available.



  1. Payment in full – made by July 1, 2020.
  2. Payment over ten installments: Monthly payments beginning July 2020 through April 2021, via FACTS Tuition Management.
