Application Fee:

A $50 non-refundable fee is required at the time of application for new students only.


Once accepted and upon submission of the enrollment packet, a non-refundable fee of $150 per student is required to hold your child’s place on the roster. 


The cost for the regular school session (8:00 am to 3:00 pm) is as follows, using one of the four options for K3-5th:


Tuition Payment (without additional Grant & Aid) : $7,250

  • Paid in one lump sum ($250 credit applies) by July 1, 2024

The cost to educate a St. Anthony student is $13,250 per year but through our generous donors, scholarships, and GALA we are able to offer the following fees (see above).

Each family must complete their online tuition agreement through FACTS Family Portal regarding their total tuition amount due and method of payments on or before August 1, 2024. Students will not be able to attend school until their contract is completed and signed online.

Grant & Aid:

Families needing additional tuition assistance may apply for such through FACTS Grant & Aid found in the FACTS Family Portal. A student must apply and be accepted to St. Anthony of Padua before tuition assistance will be applied. If future tuition assistance is needed, the financial aid committee will meet to determine each student’s eligibility. In order to be considered for further assistance, the parent(s), and guardians will need to provide three current paycheck stubs and the latest W-2. Every family must contribute toward their child's tuition.

*Scholarships are provided by benefactors of our school as well as through grants and subsidies from our Diocese and Parish.

Lunch Program:

St. Anthony participates in the SC Department of Education Food Service Program. Therefore, the prices are determined in consultation with the SC State Department. During the 2023-2024 school year, all St. Anthony students will continue to receive free breakfast, lunch, and late stay snack.
