2022-23 Tuition and Fees

Our goal is to make Nativity Catholic School accessible to all families. Our tuition rates are competitive within the Brandon/Tampa area, helping families afford the high-quality Catholic education our teachers and staff provide. Your tuition includes all curriculum materials and 1:1 technology in all grade levels.
 
Tuition is nonrefundable. All payment plans begin on April 1 of each school year.
 

 
  • For Nativity Catholic Church parishioners, please use your weekly offering envelopes, and check the Online Offertory box if applicable. 
  • For parishioners of another Catholic church, a Parish Verification Form is required to receive the Catholic rate.
Nativity Catholic School partners with families to nurture children's faith formation. This happens best when families participate in Mass each weekend, model faith at home and are active in the life of the parish. Nativity prioritizes financial assistance for families that are active parishioners of a Catholic parish. This is demonstrated through weekly Mass attendance and the exercise of good stewardship: sharing our time, talents and treasures. Weekly participation at Mass is verified using the offertory envelopes. The sharing of our time and talent means participation and involvement in the life of the parish and its various ministries. Sharing our treasures means that we actively participate in parish-sponsored tithing based on prayerful consideration and ability. The amount in your offertory envelopes does not matter; we simply ask that you use the envelope for attendance verification.
 
To receive the Catholic Parishioner Tuition rate, your family must be registered in a Catholic parish for at least three months and show consistent attendance at weekend liturgies as indicated through the offertory envelope. Any discounts or available financial aid may not apply if you do not meet these criteria.

Step Up for Students
Step Up for Students is a state-approved nonprofit scholarship-funding organization that helps administer and determine student eligibility for the Florida Tax Credit Scholarship and the Family Empowerment Scholarship for lower to middle-income families, dependent children of a member of the United States Armed Forces, and students with unique abilities. 
  • Florida Tax Credit and Family Empowerment scholarships give families financial assistance toward private school tuition and fees. Scholarships are available to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. For the 2021-22 school year, qualified students received a scholarship averaging between $6,872 to $7,426, depending on grade and county of residence. Approval is based on household income.

  • The Family Empowerment Scholarship for Students with Unique Abilities (FES-UA) (formerly known as the Gardiner Scholarship Program) is different from other state scholarships. It functions like a bank account where families can withdraw funds to pay for their child's education, including tuition/fees for private school tutoring and more. This scholarship is for students with a specific diagnosis.
