Tuition

Beginning in the 2021-2022 school year, Blessed Trinity will be implementing a tuition structure more in line with the structure used at the rest of the Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Atlanta.  This structure will be two-tiered that has an Active Catholic Rate and a Non-Active/Non Catholic Rate. 

Tuition fees paid by families constitute only a portion of the actual per-student expenses. The difference between the per student cost and the tuition charged is obtained in many ways, primarily through direct subsidy from parishes, archdiocesan resources and from multi-faceted development programs and fund-raising activities.

As a result, the Catholic rate of tuition is offered as a benefit to those families who are considered active Catholics. We strongly encourage families wanting to nurture their own faith as well as impress upon their children the importance of faith, to attend Mass regularly and contribute to the life of their parish through the sacrifice of time, talent, and treasure. 

The Parish Verification Form has been instituted across all schools to ensure that we are being careful stewards of the gifts coming from our local parishes.  Although implementing a change is never easy, this rate structure is common practice at Catholic schools throughout the country and is currently in place in 14 other Archdiocesan schools.  This change ends disparity of tuition structures within our school system.  The Non-Active Catholic/Non-Catholic rate at Blessed Trinity will be $2,000 higher than the Active Catholic rate and will increase by $100 each year until it reaches $2,500, the average tuition difference of other Catholic schools in the Archdiocese.

The change in tuition rate structure will not impact current students or practicing Catholic families. All students who were enrolled at any of these schools during the 2020-21 school year will be grandfathered in at the Active Catholic tuition rate for their remaining years at the school.  This will only be applied to new students enrolling for the first time in the 2021-2022 school year and moving forward. New students will now need to have a Parish Verification Form completed and signed by their pastor each year in order to qualify for the Active Catholic tuition rate.
