    If you teach at a Catholic school...what does your school charge?
    The one I am at charges: 11k (high school)

    Also... I am part of the archdioceses for my city...so it has a lot of schools that are under it.

    Do any of you have kids in a Catholic school...like elementary...and you get a discount by being an employee/teacher?

    I teach at a K-8 and they charge $4,000 if you're a parishioner and $5,000 if you are not a parishioner.

    I have no kids, so I have no clue if our school offers a discount. I would assume they would get some kind of a discount, though. Each school is probably different.

    The most expensive catholic school in this city is 14,000 for pre-k3 to kindergarden, 17,500 for 1-6; 20,134 for grades 7-8 and 21,200 for grades 9-12, not counting book fees, atheletic fees and activity fees, and only if you pay all of it all up front. There's an additional fee if you pay on a plan.

    The cheapest catholic school is 4,200, plus book and activity fees (but that school doesn't have a high school).

    Faculty get a small discount on tuition, though I can't remember what.

    Tuition in my area runs around $5000 per year. Tuition for my daughter (all girl's Catholic School) is $10,000 per year and for my son (all boy's Catholic School) is $7,000 per year. The girl's school is 1:1 laptop and that is the reason for the difference. Until this school year, I taught at the school that my daughter attends and money is mis-managed so it could be alot cheaper than it is and still have the laptops. The school I am teaching at now is also a Catholic School and they have laptops but tuition is only $5000. I did not move my children to my new school because my daughter is a senior and my new school does not have a band and my son plays 4 instruments so he stayed where there is a band.

    lol, teachin...it's a great school. It's also in the middle of the "old money" section of town. My Dad, who gave me my house for a college graduation present, was considered "poor", but the standards of my classmates. Go figure.

    I teach at a private school that charges $6500 (including fees)per year (PK3 - 8). Teachers do get a discount on tuition (or I couldn't afford to send my kids there!) First child is free, other children are 75% off. No book fees at the school (which is rare in the area).

    $4,000 (NOT including supplies and required donations/fund raisers) at my K-8. I don't know about a discount but I'm pretty sure there isn't (if I heard the 6th grade teacher correct, she had 3 kids go through there.) I do know the private (not Catholic) school I went to offers a lower tuition if not downright free for teachers' kids.

    Oh man! && I thought the schools around me were expensive. Possibly because I remember when my sister went there it was 2,500 (gr 9-12) by the time I got there it was 6,000.

    My cousin just started an all boys school. My uncle went there so they gave him a slight discount for being an alumni. However this year tuition rose to 9,000. My cousin and many other boys are actually transferring to either a public school or the catholic school i went too.

    My private school charges about 5,000 a year. If you are a teacher, tuition is free for your children you just need to pay the registration fees.

    The school I teach at has tuition on a scale depending how many children a family has in the school. I think 1 child is $3K, 2 children is $2,500, 3 children is $2K. I think that is the lowest it goes. The parish kicks in almost 40% of the tuition though, so the amount you pay is lower. Parishoners pay less than non-parishoners. Teachers get a discount if their children attend the school where they work. The high school next door charges almost $7K per student.

    My private school's tuition this year is $13,500 for K-5 and $15,000 for 6-8. That does not include about $1000 of fees for books, field trips, etc. $300 of that fee is refundable if parents work off their 15 hours in service to the school. Tuition is discounted 50% for a teacher's child.
