Tuition and Fees

Tuition Schedule For 2021-2022 School Year
Saint Thomas Aquinas High School was built through the efforts and sacrifices of thousands of area families. We want Saint Thomas Aquinas to continue to be an affordable place for families to send their children for a quality, faith-filled Catholic secondary education. The 2021-2022 tuition scale represents a 3.25% increase from the 2020-2021 school year.

The two charts below outline our tuition scale for the 2021-2022 school year.
Three variables affect a student’s tuition. Since Saint Thomas Aquinas is an Archdiocesan high school, the Catholic parishes in Johnson County contribute generously to keep tuition reasonable for their parish members. The individual tuition rate is also reduced for families with more than one student currently attending Saint Thomas Aquinas. Finally, our financial assistance program is available to help families with a verifiable need to meet tuition costs.

The family rate would apply to those families who have two or more students attending Saint Thomas Aquinas only.
Payment Options
Annual Tuition - Payable to the school business office by July 1, 2021 ($300 family discount for families that have paid tuition in-full and received no financial assistance and received by June 1, 2021). Billing statements will come directly from Saint Thomas Aquinas.
Semi-Annual Tuition - Tuition is split into two payments, payable to the school business office by July 1, 2021 and December 1, 2021. Billing statements will come directly from Saint Thomas Aquinas.
Monthly payments - made to FACTS with options of 10, 11, or 12 months. These payments will be automatically withdrawn from your designated account on your selected day each month.

Regardless of the payment plan you have selected, we require all families register with FACTS, our third party billing company. FACTS allows STA to bill your tuition and incidental charges all in one place. You will be able to track all incidental charges and payments made to the school and print for your records. Enrollment to Saint Thomas Aquinas is not complete until your FACTS account is set up and a payment plan is selected. Please note: If you are enrolled in autopay, incidental expenses will be automatically processed from your FACTS account.
