PreK Tuition at Saint Matthew for a K-8 student is $6,325 per year. Please check with your parish to see if they will provide you with a tuition grant to help support you giving your child a Catholic Education.
Saint Matthew the Apostle Catholic Parish provides practicing and participating members of the parish such a grant. "Participating membership" at St. Matthew Parish is defined by diocesan policy, and along with Christian discipleship is identified as follows:
Be registered as a parishioner and attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days.
Volunteer 'time and talent' in service to the parish (consider 1 hour per week).
Contribute regularly to the financial support of the parish via envelopes, checks or electronic contributions (suggested 1 hour of weekly income - 2.5%).
All of these strengthen our Christian discipleship and develop stronger relationships within the family, with other St. Matthew School families, the Parish community, and with Jesus Christ.

The Pre-K program at St. Matthew Catholic School has exceeded all of our expectations. We can literally see our daughter growing academically and spiritually right before our eyes. She can’t wait to go to school every day and as a two-parent working household, this makes us very happy with our decision to send her to St. Matthew. We are grateful that our daughter has been given the opportunity to not only learn the skills needed for Kindergarten but equally if not more important – she is growing in her faith daily in a Catholic School environment. We have found a second home and look forward to being part of the St. Matthew Catholic School family for years to come. - Chris Skidmore
As the Director of Admissions for a Catholic high school, I see the high caliber of students who graduate from St. Matthew School. Enrolling my children at St. Matthew has always been a goal for my family, and it has been a wonderful experience. Because of his experience in Pre-K, my son has developed a deep interest in faith, has grown academically, and has been embraced socially. When I drop off my son at school, I know I am passing him from my arms to the loving arms of the St. Matthew family.” – Robert and Heather Rush
“The Pre-K program at St. Matthew Catholic School has been such a blessing for our daughter. We love that she is learning in a faith-filled environment with dedicated, caring teachers. We have seen so much growth in her social and academic skills throughout the year, and we know she will be more than ready to start kindergarten in the fall. Thank you for an amazing Pre-K experience!”- Monica and Chris Kowalski
