Saints Peter & Paul produces the highest quality Catholic education with tuition rates that are well below the averages of other Diocesan (Baltimore, Washington, Wilmington) and Eastern Shore private schools. However, tuition only covers 81% of the costs of educating our students in grades PreK-12 at Saints Peter & Paul. This requires us to find additional sources of significant revenue just to meet our expenses, including fundraising initiatives, philanthropic support, and generous donations from families like yours.
Support from you helps to strengthen our educational programs, and challenge our students toward academic excellence, diversity of student life experiences, and morally responsible leadership and service; it allows us to foster professional development for a quality, dedicated faculty; it helps us increase tuition assistance and to keep tuition affordable; and, it allows us to make enhancements to our technology and facilities.
