Tuition & Fees

The Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School charges tuition at two different rates. In-Parish Tuition and Our-of-Parish Tuition. In-Parish Tuition is designated for active, registered parishioners of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church who want a Catholic education for their children.  In order to be considered for In-Parish Tuition, the following criteria must be met:
  • At least one parent is baptized Catholic
  • Enrolled children are all baptized Catholic
  • The family is registered with Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church AND has a current Stewardship of Treasure commitment card on file with the Parish office
  • The family has a record of regularly contributing to Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church for at least six months
It is expected that families receiving in-parish tuition are actively involved with the parish. This includes regular attendance at weekend Mass. As Archbishop Etienne states, “We are called to attend Mass in person, to enter into God’s sacred space to physically encounter the Lord in an extraordinary way, entering into the liturgy, worshiping God in community with others.”

If a family becomes eligible for in-parish tuition during a school year, the in-parish rate will go into effect the following school year. 
If you aren't sure which plan applies to you, please contact the school office at 206-525-9980.  Families' status is verified by the Parish Office, and those who do not meet their parish responsibility will be moved to the "Out of Parish" tuition rate.

Financial Aid and Affordability

We are committed to making Catholic education affordable and accessible to all who seek it. Families are able to apply for tuition assistance through the Fulcrum Foundation as well as our Laker Scholarship Fund. A family must apply each year through the Fulcrum Foundation to qualify for a grant—all awards are based on financial need.
  • Fulcrum Foundation financial aid applications were due on December 31, 2023.
  • To apply for any tuition assistance, families must complete the Fulcrum Foundation Aid Application even if you apply after the January deadline.
  • OLL uses the information from the Fulcrum application to determine tuition assistance awards from the Laker Scholarship Fund; there is not a separate application.
For questions regarding tuition or financial aid options, please contact Kate Orizotti, OLL Principal.
Fundraising Responsibility 2023-2024

Each family must procure items or services worth no less than $250.00 for the Annual OLL School Auction.  If the procurement form is returned after the stated due date, the family will incur a $50 late fee for a total of $300.00 charged through SchoolAdmin.  
Volunteer Hours

We ask parents for 36 volunteer hours (32 General hours, and 4 Auction hours). The rate is $20.00/unworked hour. Various events and efforts are coordinated during the school year where parents can volunteer their time and talent to enhance their students' learning experience.

"The teaching staff deserves a standing ovation. It is clear that their focus is to prepare our children for their next level - and they do! Though beyond that, they provide a very safe space for our daughters to learn and thrive. Both girls have asked us to let them stay at OLL forever!"
- OLL School Parent
"My children’s teachers were fully invested in academic and social/emotional outcomes. My children could feel this and gave their best effort because they knew how much their teachers cared about them. We have found OLL to be an academically rigorous, civically minded, and very caring community. We love the school! We could not be happier at OLL."
