Holy Family Catholic School is a financially self-supporting, diocesan-approved, regional Catholic school. HFCS is not directly subsidized by the Diocese of Boise or by the local Catholic parishes. This school is established in faith that, through God’s grace, the people who value Catholic education will continue to support the school financially.
Fair Share Tuition/Stewardship
An important part of HFCS’s mission is a commitment to providing a quality Catholic school education to all who seek it, regardless of financial capabilities. Holy Family Catholic School has a Fair Share/Stewardship tuition program which is an opportunity for families to share their time and talents in order to meet their child(ren)’s tuition.
Fair Share is rooted in the long-held principles of justice and honesty and allows all those seeking this education to support HFCS as their financial means allow. As Christians, our lives are an offering; we sacrificially give to model Christ’s sacrifice. Fair Share assumes that parents (using faith, prayer, common sense, and honesty) will decide what they can sacrificially give in order to provide a Catholic education for their child(ren). It assumes that every family will make a maximum effort to support the school and will give the school as much of the cost of their child(ren)’s education as possible. HFCS believes that this commitment supports the following principles of the HFCS Fair Share/Stewardship tuition program: (1) to make it possible for all children to attend HFCS regardless of ability to pay, (2) to keep tuition for all families at an affordable rate, and (3) to share the cost of education among all HFCS families in an equitable way. Tuition assistance is available based on demonstrable financial need.
Holy Family Catholic School’s tuition assistance program is designed to allow families of all financial means the opportunity to pursue an education at Holy Family Catholic School.
