The mission of St. Louis Catholic School is to prepare the leaders

of tomorrow with the light of Christ as their guide.



The 2018-2019 school year enrollment begins our new continuous enrollment program at SLCS.  We want to remind everyone that March 15, 2018 is the date the non-refundable early enrollment fee of $285.00 per student will be deducted via parent’s FACTS accounts.  This will hold your child’s spot for the 18-19 school year.

If you provide notification of withdrawal by March 1st, you may still enroll your child after March 15th if space is available.  The regular enrollment fee of $335.00 per student will be required at this time.

Tuition assistance will continue to be available to those needing assistance.  The process to apply for tuition assistance requires that a family complete a FACTS Grant and Aid Assessment form by February 1, 2018 in order to be included in the review of applicants.  Notification typically comes at the end of the schoolyear.

Thank you once again for all you do for this wonderful school community.  Your partnership is essential in making SLCS the destination school of the Diocese of Austin as we endeavor to create the leaders of tomorrow with the light of Christ as their guide.
