  • Well in my area - Erie PA we are at about 2500.00 to 3000.00. I know that even our Catholic Colleges around here Mercyhurst and Gannon only cost about 16,000.00 a year

  • We pay about $2000 a year for preschool and then for K-8 it will cost us $4200 a year per child since we are not Catholic.

  • Our Catholic school is $3500 per kid per year (with a slight decrease for each additional kid). I have 3 kids in the school (1st, 2nd and 4th grades) and it's about $700 a month (and we pay every month even in summer).
    I've never heard of a Catholic school charging $25,000 a year. I've heard of private Christian schools charging $10k-$12k per kid per year. I'm sure she meant $2500.

  • My area it is 5500/year. We are considering it for our son b/c I do not feel homeschooling or public school is a good option for us.

  • My brother and I went to Catholic school and saw my parents struggle financially. Good thing it was only til 8 grade then we both went to the public system. We live in a small town so there were only 8 grades then but it's changed since from kindegarten til 6th grade.
