"My memories at Immaculata started with Mrs. Hawkins taking my little girl to her classroom to assess her readiness for Pre-K. We had visited 10 schools...Immaculata was #11, but I fell in love with it from the moment I walked in. From the little boy who opened the door for us, to no locks on the lockers, to the rainbow of students in the classrooms this felt like home. As an African-American, non-Catholic family that was important to us. Now both my girls have graduated from Immaculata having had the best of experiences. We are so grateful that we continued our search until we found just the right school."

We do not wish our tuition policy to be a hardship for committed families. Need-based, partial tuition assistance is available and confidential for students enrolling in Kindergarten through Grade 8. Families applying for tuition assistance will need to complete an application and submit the necessary supporting documentation to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment at the time of initial application and annually thereafter.
No more than 50% of the parish tuition rate will be awarded to an individual, with priority going to parishioners. New students will be notified of awards at the time of enrollment acceptance.
We are not able to offer financial assistance for our Pre-K or After School programs as both may be eligible for dependent care reimbursement through your employer, providing tax savings.
