HOW DO I PAY TUITION AND WHEN IS IT DUE?

As of the 2017-2018 school year, tuition payments are managed by Smart Tuition. The school office no longer accepts tuition payments; everyone must register with Smart Tuition. If you havent already done so, please register immediately!  An online enrollment site is available for our families:

  • Visit the schools enrollment site at www.EnrollWithSmart.com | Click on CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT under I do not have a Smart Account.
  • CHOOSE ST. PATRICK CATHOLIC ACADEMY. Under Find your childs institution by school name or school ID, search for us by name or enter our Smart School ID # 13819
  • WHO WILL PAY? Enter one parent/guardian as the primary account holder. S/he will be responsible for paying the student(s) charges. Enter the bill payers contact information. Please be sure to include telephone number and email address, as Smart Tuition regularly communicates important information about your account.
  • WHO WILL ATTEND? Enter your childs name and select his/her grade: Nursery: 3 Half Days, Nursery: 3 Full Days, Nursery: 5 Half Days, Nursery: 5 Full Days, Pre-K, K-8. NOTE: If you have more than one child attending the school, add them to the one account. Do NOT register them individually. If you need to add a child, at a later time, please contact the school.
  • HOW & WHEN WILL YOU PAY? Review the available payment plans and due dates and choose one. Now select your preferred method of payment:
    • Mail me an invoice. Your tuition invoice will be mailed approximately 20 days before the due date. You are welcome to make payment by mail by check or money order payable to Smart Tuition (Smart Tuition does not accept cash payments). Payment may also be initiated from your bank or financial institution. Please note that your financial institution will not electronically transfer the payment to Smart Tuition.
    • Automatically debit my bank account. If an automatic debit from a checking or savings account has been selected, emails are sent approximately 10 days before your scheduled due date and will contain the debit amount.
  • Review Smart Tuitions terms and conditions. Click SUBMIT ENROLLMENT to complete your online enrollment.
  • You will now see a confirmation page and youll get a confirmation email. The school is then notified and enters your tuition billing information. This finalizes your account activation and youll receive another email from Smart Tuition with instructions on how to access/view your account.
