One of the goals at St. Richard School is to provide a Catholic education to its students. Once admitted, students are to participate in religion classes and liturgies and otherwise conform to the religious expectations of the School.


Tuition is differentiated between “participating parishioner” and “non-parishioner.” Regular attendance at mass and faithful and consistent stewardship of Time, Talent and Treasure (financial support) to the Parish is expected by families of students attending or wishing to attend the School. Families meeting these and other criteria provided at the time of school registration will be deemed “participating parishioners” for purposes of determining rate of tuition. All other families will be considered “non-participating” for purposes of tuition. More information can be provided during a school visit/tour or at the time of registration.
