Saint Mary School is a parochial school that must use tuition and fundraising to meet our annual budget. Our mission is to provide students of diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds with an excellent Catholic education that provides a strong spiritual, academic, and moral foundation for their adult lives. Our staff is composed of carefully selected and screened educators with credentials and/or graduate degrees in accordance with the standards in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and the State of California.
Tuition is set as affordable as possible. We recognize the challenge of affording multiple children in a private school. Therefore tuition is prorated based on the number of children in a family attending Saint Mary School. The tuition collected from families does not cover the school's annual expenses and we, therefore, depend on income from SCRIP, PTO fundraisers, development efforts, and Title I & II funding.
Below are the annual costs of attending Saint Mary School. The school administration is committed to helping any family who wants to attend Saint Mary's but may not be able to afford full tuition. Please visit the Tuition Assistance section of our website for more information.
