2017-2018 Payment Policy


Families enrolling their child for 2017-18 school year must return the School Tuition Payment Form (1 per family), together with 10% nonrefundable down payment of tuition, to the School Office by May 1, 2017.   Down payment paid after May 1, 2017 is subject to a $50 administrative fee.  If needed please make any necessary corrections to the information printed on the Form. See the Tuition Policy to calculate the amount of fees due.


  1. Parents are given the option of either paying tuition in full to St. Mary Parish on or before July 1, 2017 or making monthly payments through Smart Tuition.
  2. If you are re-enrolling or enrolling in the Smart Tuition Program simply indicate this on the School Fees Payment Form and enroll in the SMART Tuition Program by June 1, 2017 using the Smart Tuition Enrollment Link on the right hand side of this page.  Our school code is 1479.  Instructions to enroll can be found under Resources.

Smart Tuition

Smart Tuition is a monthly payment play that makes it easy for you to:

  1. Select a payment method that works best for you.
  2. Access your account online.
  3. Receive payment and follow-up reminders
  4. Speak with a customer service representative 24/7.

Smart Tuition will bill you the $70.00 enrollment fee so there is no need to include payment.  (Smart Tuition charges $50.00 and St. Mary charges $20.00 to cover administrative costs.)  The amount of tuition in Smart Tuition will be the amount shown in the "If Paid after 7/1 or Smart Tuition" column on the 2017-18 Tuition Policy.

Your timely response is most important.  If you should have any questions or need help in completing the form, please call Jim Podewils at the Parish Office at 425-2174 x216.
