Tuition and fees do not cover the costs of educating the students at our Lady of Talpa. The deficit is made up by various fundraising activities sponsored by the Parent Guild, Alumni Association, and the Daughters of Charity Foundation. Our Lady of Talpa must meet operational expenses and payroll on a monthly basis. All families are expected to pay tuition and fees when due. All tuition and fundraising monies are spent to meet the yearly financial budget. If a family is undergoing a financial crises, they must speak to the principal prior to falling behind on tuition payments. Once a family becomes delinquent in tuition, the child will not be allowed to attend class.

A non-refundable registration fee is required. This fee partially covers the cost of books, supplies, testing materials, student insurance, library resources, audio-visual equipment, etc. The fee is non-refundable, even if the student transfers to another school or decides not to begin the school year.

All current tuition and fees must be paid in full by the start of the next school year. Delinquent payments may result in your child not attending school.

Tuition rates are found in the school contract. Payment of tuition is done through TADS Tuition Management Program. Any questions regarding TADS and or tuition, please contact the school office.

You may also contact TADS at  or 800-477-8237.  M-F 8am-8pm Central time.

If a family should experience an unexpected financial crisis, they need to make this known to the school as soon as possible (at least 5 working days prior to a payment being due).

A $25.00 fine will be added for any other returned checks. If a check is returned a second time, payments must be paid in cash or money order for the remainder of the school year.

Non-tuition payments of any kind may be made during school hours. If you send cash or checks, please enclose it in an envelope with family name on front, amount, and date. Please refrain from sending cash with your child for safety reasons.

No personal checks will be accepted during the months of May and June. Payments must be made by cash/money orders only.
