Tuition Assistance:

Current BISON families

  • Families  will receive an email with a  link to complete the requalification process in February 2020. 

Parish Assistance

  • Financial assistance from St. Martha Parish is available to families demonstrating need. Assistance is determined by the Tuition Committee, based on availability of funds. Parish assistance forms are available from the Principal.  To qualify for Parish Assistance you must submit a copy of your BISON application to the School Office along with the St. Martha Tuition Assistance application. 

  • Non-parishioners may apply for St. Martha Tuition Assistance once your BISON is submitted. If you are not a member of St. Martha but belong to another church without a school, you must apply for the Catholic Tuition Grant Program and submit a signed copy of your CTGP application. 

  • If your CTGP form is not signed by your home parish and submitted to OLBS, you will be charged the non-parishioner tuition rate.

  • Families not associated with a Catholic church may apply for St. Martha’s Tuition Assistance by submitting a BISON application and completing the St. Martha Tuition Assistance form through the principal.

  • Minimum parental tuition responsibility is $500.

Volunteer 

  • The sharing of your time, talents and treasures promotes unity in our school community. The money raised in fundraising helps to keep the tuition rates and parish subsidy at the recommended Diocesan rate.
