Wauwatosa Catholic School has an "all-inclusive" tuition structure which includes book/material fees, playground fees, technology fees and one educational field trip (grades K4-8). Tuition dollars help to cover a portion of the total cost to educate your child. The tuition structure is competitive and comparable to our neighboring schools, thanks to the financial support of our two sponsoring parishes St. Bernard and St. Pius X and the success of our fundraising efforts (i.e. annual auction for education and skate nights).

Parishioner Tuition Rate Requirements: To qualify for the St. Bernard Parish or St. Pius X Parish parishioner tuition rate the family must be a registered member of the supporting parish, have submitted your stewardship commitment card, participate regularly in the prayer and worship life, demonstrate stewardship through sharing time and talent, and contribute financially on a regular basis. Please note, you must have turned in your stewardship commitment card to your parish prior to turning in your registration paperwork, otherwise you will be charged the non-parishioner tuition rate. Failure to fulfill the parishioner agreement will result in the re-assessment of the parishioner discount.
Ways to lower your tuition bill
Families are strongly encouraged to utilize the year round SCRIP program to help lower tuition costs.
The state budget bill (2013 Wisconsin Act 20) established a tuition tax deduction which began in the 2014 tax year. Taxpayers may deduct private/religious school tuition expenses they have paid, up to $4,000 for each dependent child in kindergarten through eighth grade and up to $10,000 for each dependent child in grades nine through twelve. Please consult a tax preparer with additional questions.
