Through collaborative efforts between the school and parish leadership, we have set the 2023-24 tuition rates. Every effort is made to keep the tuition rates attainable for each family by focusing on fundraising efforts and responsible management of school expenses. As you may know, tuition does not cover the total cost to educate a student at St. Norbert School. In addition to our fundraising efforts, the Parish also provides a substantial subsidy each year to help cover the school’s operating expenses.
Active parishioners of St. Norbert Parish (“SNP”) are eligible to receive the discounted rate reflected in the chart below. (If you are not a member of SNP, please contact your Pastor to see how your parish subsidizes the tuition rates.) “Active parishioners” of SNP are those who participate regularly in the life of our parish including worshipping at Sunday Mass and generously sharing their time, talent, and treasure with both the parish and school. While regular offertory giving at any level is appreciated, a minimum yearly contribution of $1,000 per family is suggested.
Online parish giving is an easy and convenient way to ensure that your donations are received year-round. To do so, please go to https://www.osvonlinegiving.com/1391 or find the “GIVE” button on the homepage of the SNP website. Please use church envelopes when donating by cash or check to ensure that your family receives proper recognition.

As a reminder, unless other arrangements have been made, tuition payments must be up to date for your child to receive his/her report card, attend a field trip, transfer records, or start the next school year. As always, parishioners who cannot afford to pay their child’s tuition should contact us or the parish’s Sr. Director of Operations and Finance for a private conversation. There are sources of funding available to help families experiencing financial difficulty and we will work with any parishioner who wants to attend St. Norbert School.
Blackbaud will be handling our tuition invoicing and payments. All tuition payments are made directly to Blackbaud. Current families have been re-enrolled. Families new to our school will be enrolled; however, you will need to finish your enrollment. To do so, please go to www.parent.blackbaud.school.com. Once there, you can choose the payment plan you prefer, your banking information, preferred email address, and pick which method you want invoices sent. For all families – approximately 20 days before your first payment is due on August 15th, you will receive a “welcome” email or letter from Blackbaud to refresh or educate you on how their program works. At any time, families can contact Blackbaud at 1-888-868-8828 with questions.
The success of our students is only possible because of the dedication of the talented faculty and staff, the generous volunteers, our committed parents, and our parishioners’ support. It is this shared commitment that allows Saint Norbert School to provide an exceptional learning experience in which students are nurtured spiritually, academically, physically, and socially to become active citizens, future leaders in their church and responsible stewards of our world.
