Tuition & Affordability
Tuition & Fees
St. Andrew School is funded by tuition, the generosity of the members of St. Andrew Parish, and your gift of time and talent. The tuition we charge does not cover the cost of the education we provide. The difference is made up by a grant from the Parish whose source is the Sunday Collection. The extras are generously provided for by the funds raised by our Home School Organization (HSO). We strive to keep tuition as low as possible. Your gifts of “time, talent and treasure” in support of these fundraisers enable us to meet budget. You may give back by participating in our Active Tuition Plan also known as ATP. Doing so provides a generous reduction in your tuition each year.

Financial Aid, Scholarships, & Assistance
There are various ways to obtain financial assistance toward your tuition:
ATP: Our Active Tuition Plan (ATP) is used by 90% of our school families. This program requires families to get involved in our school. There are a variety of options which include volunteering, selling scrip, and participating in our Race for Education. Those who participate in ATP receive a deduction from tuition which is why most families choose this option.
Church Subsidies: If you are a member of St. Mark’s, St. Rita’s, St. Ann’s or St. Andrew Catholic Church, you may be given a subsidy from your home church. Any church within the Harrisburg Diocese qualifies. In order to receive assistance, you must register with your parish office and fill out a Pastor’s Endorsement Form. You must be active within your church, attend mass regularly, and be financially supporting your church to qualify for the subsidy. You can obtain a Pastor’s Endorsement Form by contacting Sylvia Cartwright at 717-743-1024.
Neumann Scholarship Foundation: NSF provides partial scholarships to students in one of the largest private school systems in the state of Pennsylvania–the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Harrisburg.
