If you would like your child to experience an St. Francis Xavier education, please know that we will do everything possible to help make tuition fit your family budget.
We are committed to making Catholic education available and affordable to all interested families. To confidentially explore your options, please complete the steps below or contact Deanna Dupont, Admissions Coordinator at (920) 735-9380 for more information.
Step 1: Research Participation in a Coverdell Education Savings Account
ESA's provide qualifying families the opportunity to save tax-free for
St. Francis Xavier tuition expenses. If this option is appropriate for
your family, you can begin saving at birth and all earnings that are
subsequently used for education will be tax-free. More information is
available at http://www.irs.gov/publications/p970/ch07.html St. Francis
Xavier cannot provide financial advisement. Please contact a qualified
financial advisor to answer your specific questions.
