Policies & Tuition

Admissions Policy

The Catholic Independent Schools of the Nelson Diocese encourage all families of our parishes to register their children in its schools. The children of these families are granted priority in enrollment, as the primary purpose for the existence of our schools is to provide a Catholic education for the students in our parishes. Our tuition rates are kept to a minimum, so that all our parents have the opportunity to enroll their children; however, our tuition structure is two-tiered in order to take into account that it is the parents who are active members of our parishes who in fact finance the parish subsidies to our schools through their Sunday contribution envelopes. Children of non-Catholic parents may be granted admission as space permits.
