FACTS Tuition Management Program

Saint John Paul the Great Catholic High School collects tuition and transportation fees through FACTS, a third party tuition management company. This allows families to spread the cost over multiple payment periods (10 or 12 month options). You also have the option to pay the full amount of tuition in advance directly to us via personal check. For questions regarding tuition payments, please contact Mrs. Donna Stoessel, Tuition Manager,
