The Gap Between Tuition and the True Cost of Education

The true cost to educate a student is almost $10,000, far above the tuition fees we ask of our school families. We set tuition rates lower than the true cost of education to make the school more affordable for families. Lourdes is committed to seeking additional revenue sources to make up the difference between the true cost of education and the tuition and fees that are billed to every family. Every student benefits from tuition assistance. This year, the cost of a Lourdes education for each K-8 student is $9,485. The estimated annual tuition increase is 3-6%.

Parent Testimonial

My children transferred to Lourdes mid-year during the COVID pandemic when it became clear the WA public school system was not moving to get older children back to in person learning. All of the staff at Lourdes have been EXTREMELY welcoming and have gone above and beyond with a mid-year transition. If you are looking for a personalized academic experience for your child, this is the school for you. Lourdes has figured out how to keep the kids engaged, learning and safe during a pandemic. The academic program is challenging, comprehensive and is setting the students up for high school and college success. The atmosphere is friendly and inclusive. The teachers/staff are very well organized and in tune with their students.

*What is In-Parish Tuition?

In-Parish tuition rates may vary by parish. The published rates represent Our Lady of Lourdes In-Parish rates which are available to families verified as active participating members of the parish. Families who belong to other local Catholic parishes may qualify for In-Parish tuition from their home parish.
