Wauwatosa Catholic School has an "all-inclusive" tuition structure which includes book/material fees, playground fees, technology fees and two educational field trips (grades K4-8). Tuition dollars help to cover a portion of the total cost to educate your child. The tuition structure at Wauwatosa Catholic School 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 to the success of our active and passive fundraising efforts (i.e. annual auction for education in November).
