Tuition & Affordability

As a Catholic parish school, it is part of our mission to be accessible and affordable to all who desire this education. While maintaining high educational standards, the school creates learning opportunities that support parents as the primary educators of their children; build a faith community; develop ethical and moral thinking; provide service to the entire community; and address the ways in which children learn.

Annual Tuition and Fees

We offer our families a ten month payment plan for all tuition and fees billed May through February.  This is done through an online tuition management system call FACTS.  Our school families anticipate an annual increase in tuition, which ensures our ability to maintain and grow our academic programs and offer competitive salaries to our teachers.

Tuition Assistance

 

It is our policy to make a Catholic education accessible to our current and prospective parish families, space permitting, regardless of their ability to pay tuition.  Families who receive Tuition Assistance are generally required to pay some portion of their tuition obligation – full Tuition Assistance grants are awarded in special circumstances. Families who receive Tuition Assistance grants are still asked to fulfill their other financial obligations to the school and parish, including but not limited to the following: application fee, book fee, fundraising contributions, activity fees and church stewardship commitment.

 

In addition to School Tuition Assistance grants, families may also be eligible for financial assistance through the Seattle Archdiocese Fulcrum Foundation.  To be considered for both School Tuition Assistance AND/OR Fulcrum Foundation grants, families must complete the FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment Application (see below for instructions), pay the $29 application fee assessed by FACTS, and upload the required supporting documentation.

 

Families who complete the FACTS application and submit the required supporting documentation will be considered for two grants. We do not currently offer financial assistance for Pre-Kindergarten:
1. Seattle Archdiocese Fulcrum Foundation Grant of $1,300 (For grades K-8th)
2. Tuition Assistance from Assumption-St. Bridget School (For grades K-8th)

 

Families will be notified if they have been awarded either a Fulcrum Grant and/or an Assumption-St. Bridget Tuition Assistance grant.

Scholarship Opportunities

 
Kaysen James Augustavo Memorial Scholarship Fund: Courage to Cope

Kaysen

The Kaysen James Augustavo Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to provide families that have experienced tragedy, hardship, and grief with financial assistance to attend ASB.  The scholarship was created by ASB alum Nick, class of 2000, in memory of his 15 month old son, Kaysen who passed away of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) in 2019.  The Augustavo Family has attended ASB since 1962.  

 

 

The Melissa Protz Foundation

Melissa ProtzMelissa Ann Protz lived with enthusiasm and zeal that drew people in - her love for teaching, and celebrating the outdoors and nature were infectious. In her three short years teaching middle school science at ASB, Ms. Protz made inspired students and families to “go make a difference” in the world, forming a lasting impression and force for good. 

In July 2014, the collective light of our community was dimmed when Ms. Protz was tragically killed in a boating accident on Lake Washington. Staff, students, and families’ hearts were broken with the loss of our beloved teacher. The community responded by following Ms. Protz’s example of “Go Make a Difference” - and transformed a neglected corner of our campus into a thriving garden and outdoor space perfect for reflection. In October 2014, the extended Protz Family witnessed the dedication of the Melissa Ann Protz - MAP - Garden. Each year, a new group of students on the Green Team lovingly maintains the MAP garden, and the class of 2017 added a beautiful blooming cherry tree as their class gift upon graduation.

Since 2015, The Melissa Protz Foundation has contributed $30,000 to provide learning opportunities that extend beyond the classroom.  The Protz family sponsors a fantastic 7th grade field trip giving students the opportunity to experience and learn about marine biology.   In addition to sponsoring the annual Marine Biology field trip, the Protz family selects annual graduate as Go Make a Difference scholarship winner. Students are invited to write an essay detailing their passion and commitment to the environment and living by Ms. Protz’s motto: “Go Make a Difference”!
