Jr. High and High School:
- High Ignite and High School FLAME programs meet on Sundays from 5:15 to 7pm. Families are encouraged to attend the 4pm Sunday Mass, which precedes this program.
Sacraments (Sacramental Prep Policy)
Sacramental preparation tracks are offered for First Eucharist (typically in 2nd grade – must complete two years of religious education to participate in the program) and Reconciliation (typically in 4th grade) and are attended by parent(s) and child.
The Confirmation preparation track is integrated into our FLAME program and requires a two-year commitment (sacrament is typically received in the teen’s sophomore year of high school).
RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children)
A program for children/teens who have not been baptized, were baptized in another Christian Church (Lutheran, Baptist, Evangelical, etc.) and now want to receive First Eucharist, or who were baptized but have not received any formal religious education or the sacraments of Reconciliation or First Eucharist.
Tuition and Fees
All registrations must be received by September 1st, 2020 to be admitted to the program. Registrations after September 1st will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Families withdrawing from the program must notify us no later than November 15, 2020 to qualify for a refund of any amount paid, less the $100 non-refundable deposit.
Please note that a non-refundable deposit of $100 is required upon registration and will be applied towards your tuition. Your registration is not complete until this has been received. In addition, if you have an outstanding tuition balance from a previous year at the time of this registration, it must be paid in full, or you must make other arrangement with the director before registering.
All tuition and sacramental fees must be paid by September 1, 2020. Your child(ren) will not be placed in a class until your balance has been paid in full or other arrangements have been made with the director (such as payment plans or financial assistance).
We offer a participating and non-participating rate for families. In order to qualify for the participating rate ($75 discount), families must be registered parishioners, volunteer for a minimum of 5 hours throughout the year, and financially contribute to the parish regularly in a traceable way (online or through collection envelopes). If you register with the participating rate and do not meet these requirements, you will have an additional $75 added to your account next spring.
Please do not let cost be a prohibitive factor in the faith development of your child(ren). Contact Courtney Smola at 847-907-3483 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss payment plans (monthly payments) or financial assistance. All special requests for alternative payment plans must be received annually by the first day of class. If you were on a payment plan or receive financial assistance last year, this is not automatically set-up for next year. You must contact the office to set this up again each year.
