Tuition, Scholarships, and Financial Aid
The provision of a quality education is an expensive endeavor. St. Peter’s School has made every effort to contain costs and strives to provide access to the school by supporting those who would otherwise not be able to attend. Presently, one in every three families receives tuition assistance. For a child whose parents are committed to a Catholic education, St. Peter’s will make every effort to ensure availability and affordability. We encourage parents to call building principals or the Business Office at 419-524-2572 with any questions about tuition, scholarships and financial aid. St. Peter’s School prides itself on its reputation that all inquiries are held in strict confidence.
