Enclosed you will find all the information you need to re-enroll your current student. Tuition for the 21-22 academic year has been frozen by the Board of Directors at $8,700. They are committed to keeping Catholic and Mooney education affordable and accessible. In addition there is our $300 student fee. As we prepare for the next academic year, I am writing to ask for your help.
From conversations and our recent survey, you have said that we need better processes, that are simplified and easy to access. You also have let us know that a seamless start to the new school year is important. We agree.
With that in mind, I am asking that you re-enroll your current student(s) — this is for current 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students from February 1st through February 28th. During this time Mooney will have extended office hours to assist families. It is free and doing this will enable us to begin scheduling classes, build a structure for our master schedule, and provide us with the time to meet with every family one-on-one. After Feb. 28th, a $100 registration fee will be applied.
After we re-enroll our current students, we will turn our personal attention to the Class of 2025. With your help, Cardinal Mooney will be ready to smoothly welcome student(s) next school year.
The real cost to Cardinal Mooney of educating a student is substantially higher than the tuition we charge. The difference between the tuition and the actual cost to us (the tuition gap) is made up through continual development efforts and the generosity of the Mooney faithful alumni, parents, and benefactors. Their gifts are evidence of their confidence in Mooney and in catholic education.
We are happy to provide several payment plans administered by FACTS. You’ll find information on FACTS enclosed with this letter.
Last year, approximately 80% of our families received financial aid or scholarships from Cardinal Mooney, Ohio EdChoice, the Diocese and anonymous donors. Financial aid information is enclosed. Our goal is to maintain a student population rich in talent and diverse in culture. Families are required to complete a FACTS application each year and send supporting documents. Mooney staff will be available to assist here at school or over the phone. Extended hours until 5:30pm are available on Mondays and Wednesdays, February 3, 8, 10, 17, 22 and 24.
We are simultaneously preparing for next school year and baccalaureate and commencement for our seniors. This is a busy time for us. I’ll close by once again, by thanking you for your assistance in helping us provide the best experience for those graduating, those returning, and in welcoming the Class of 2025.
Thomas Maj, President
