Fundraising Credit Policy
Tuition does not cover the true cost of educating every child at Annunciation Catholic School.  Thus, the gap must be made up mainly through fundraising to generate additional revenue and resources to support projects and programs.  Therefore, we ask that all families actively participate in the fundraisers as much as possible.
1. Parents are given the opportunity to earn tuition credit by participating in designated fundraising activities (dinners, auction, candy, etc.).  Each family is given a goal as determined by the number of families in the school and amount budgeted for fundraisers.  A fifteen percent (15%) credit will be given for anything earned above  that goal.
2. Graduating seventh graders will receive a refund check in place of tuition credit.
Tuition Assistance
Tuition assistance is available for registered, active and supporting parish families who have children in grades K-7 and have been in the school for not less than one (1) year prior to applying for aid.  This assistance is for those families who are undergoing family life-changing events such as, but not limited to, job loss, medical emergency, divorce, or death.  Families are expected to participate in fundraisers by both selling and working.  Families meeting the criteria may request applications from the churchoffice as needed.
Scholarship Programs
Louisiana has School Tuition Organizations participating in the Tuition Donation Rebate Program:  ACE Scholarships Louisiana and Arete Scholars Louisiana.  Individuals interested in participating in the TDR program should communicate directly with one or more School Tuition Organization by contacting the following:
