Tuition Categories (Kindergarten – 8th Grade)

Volunteer Service Hours

One of the top 3 reasons why families love St. Lucy School is because of our community. From volunteering in the classroom, driving on field trips and class celebrations to joining a parent leadership committee, we are in it to support our students and St. Lucy School!

Each family is required to fulfill volunteer hours each year.

Two parent households
40 hours per year

Single parent households
20 hours per year

Scrip Fundraising Program

Scrip is a no-cost fundraising program that offers e-gift cards or physical gift cards for purchase at face value. The school receives a percentage of each purchase as profit. Each family is required to earn $250 in profit/rebates for St. Lucy School by purchasing Scrip, buying out for the full amount, or doing a combination of the two between May 1 and April 30.  Single family households are required to earn $125.

Tuition Assistance

Scholarships and financial aid is available for St. Lucy School families each year. Scholarships are granted by the pastor and principal and financial aid is given through the Private School Aid Service­ (PSAS).

All communication is confidential as families work directly with the principal. To qualify for all tuition assistance, the Private School Aid (PSAS) form must be submitted. Applications are available beginning in December through the school office. A completed tax return and all supporting documentation is required for the application to be considered. All aid is distributed based on the associated need ­based rankings.

After the form is processed, families may qualify for aid from the Diocese of San Jose and/or St. Lucy School.

*NOTE: Families who are new to the school may also apply for the BASIC Fund, which is a privately funded multi­-year scholarship administered in San Francisco. Basic Fund applications are available in December at
