Tuition & Financial Aid
When you consider what is included in your tuition at Annunciation, you can see that you’re making a great investment in your child's future. Consider the following:
- Our kindergarten through second grade classrooms include a teacher and classroom aide; that’s typically a 10-1 student to teacher ratio.
- Learning Spanish as a second language is included in your tuition. Not an add-on or after school activity like other schools.
- We offer two recesses per day to enhance the learning process.
- Children participate in annual service projects to give back to our community.
- Our highly acclaimed Creative Arts program builds confidence and leadership skills.
- As an IB World School, your child will learn how to learn vs. memorizing content for a test.
The actual cost to educate a K-8 child for the 2024-25 school year is about $8500. These rates are lower because the parish helps to subsidize the school along with established endowments, fundraising, special events and other generous donations.
Listed below are our tuition and financial aid options.

K-8 FINANCIAL AID
We want to help your child reach their potentiality through a Catholic school education - tuition should never be a barrier. Tuition assistance is offered to new and returning students through our Help-A-Student Fund. To be considered for aid, each family is required to complete a TADS financial aid application EACH YEAR. The application serves for all students in a family, unless there is a split household, in which case, each household must submit their own financial aid application. There is a $35 fee to process this application.
Financial Aid Timeline:
- November 1: TADS financial aid applications become available for the 2024-25 school year. We encourage you to begin the financial aid process early using your 2022 tax return and your most recent pay stub.
- February 28: Online TADS financial aid application deadline. Include supporting tax and income documentation. (If 2023 taxes are not completed, a preliminary application may be completed using 2022 tax information.) Financial aid applications will be accepted after this date, but aid will be distributed to these applicants first and then to later applicants, as funds allow.
- April 16: Financial aid deadline to update with 2023 year-end tax information and documentation (if not provided by the February 26 deadline).
- April 2024: Financial aid awards emailed to families and applied to TADS billing accounts.
