tuition & finacial aid

At St. Mary’s School, we prioritize making tuition affordable for all families. Thanks to generous support from our Parent Teacher Organization and St. Mary of the Assumption parish, we’re able to offer some of the lowest tuition rates in the Capital District.

Here are some important points to note:

  • Tuition Account with FACTS:
    • All families must create and maintain a tuition account with FACTS Management. 
    • FACTS assesses an annual fee, these fees are charged directly to the family’s FACTS account.
  • Morning and After School Care:
    • Morning Care is available starting at 7:00 am daily.
    • Fees for Morning Care and After School Care are billed to a family’s FACTS account weekly.
  • Registration Fee: There is a non-refundable registration fee per student due at the time of registration. The fee schedule is as follows:
    • New families:
      • Pre-Kindergarten – $250
      • Kindergarten – Grade 8 – $200
    • Current families:
      • Pre-Kindergarten – $150
      • Kindergarten – Grade 8 – $100
