529 Education Savings Plan Can Now Help With SJSC Tuition
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 allows families to withdraw up to $10,000 tax-free from their 529 savings plan to pay for private school tuition. These educational savings plans were traditionally used by families to invest and save for their children's college tuition. This new law, which became effective January 1, 2018, opens up this tax benefit to families for K-12 private school tuition. We encourage all SJSC families to check with their tax professional or financial adviser for more information about this new law.  

Our dynamic St. Serra community thrives on our parents' time, talent, and treasure. To best manage these resources, each family is required to perform sixty (60) hours of service benefiting the school. There are a multitude of volunteer opportunities which meet this requirement and allow for you to get involved in this great community. Each family is responsible for recording their service hours online via the FACTS SIS system.

Tuition Assistance


Tuition Assistance applications for the 2021-22 school year has closed.

At St. Junipero Serra Catholic School, part of our mission is to provide the opportunity for every student to receive a Catholic Education.  We are therefore committed to financially assisting students and families who might not otherwise be able to attend.

We offer financial assistance in the form of Tuition Assistance that does not need to be repaid.  The availability of Assistance funds varies according to each school year’s fundraising, and even though a family may qualify, this does not guarantee that funds are available. An award one year is not a guarantee of an award in the future.  An average award is between 5%-15% of total all-in Tuition costs and is based on financial need.

In order to be eligible for Tuition Assistance, applicants must meet the following criteria:
  1. Completed financial aid applications for the 2021-22 school year, including all required documents, must be submitted to FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment by March 26, 2021.
  2. Returning families must re-apply for financial aid each year. 
  3. Students must be accepted and enrolled to be considered for aid.
  4. Demonstrate a need as determined by FACTS and the St. Serra Assistance Committee (3rd party, blind).
