Saint Columbkille Partnership School accepts Department of Education Child Care Vouchers for Pre-K, K1 and K2, after-school, vacation and summer programs. Once you are accepted at Saint Columbkille, please contact the business office to arrange for the voucher to be transferred here.

A full voucher may be used during the summer program only for a “kindergarten child defined as a child who is five years old or who will attend first grade the following year in a public or private school.” Vouchers for students under 5 years old are not accepted by Saint Columbkille Partnership School and we encourage families to find alternate care during the summer months.

 

Individual tutoring is offered to students who are deemed to need one-on-one assistance. Tutoring fees will be processed through the FACTS Payment Plan on a monthly basis at the end of the month. Please review the invoice on the FACTS Financial account and not just the email reminders FACTS sends out. The tutoring fee is $38 per class. There may be financial assistance available based on need. Please ask the business office staff for an application.

 

Technology is a useful tool for learning. We believe that if used in measured, monitored ways, it will advance learning and help prepare a student for high school. It is important that families and the school coordinate their efforts to help our children understand and utilize technology responsibly.

Students in Loyola Academy are issued Chromebooks that are transported back and forth from school each day. Each student will be responsible for his or her own computer. Having Chromebooks that are issued by the school enables the school to monitor usage. Accounts have been created through Google for Education for students that have email accounts associated with them and storage space for documents that they will create. Spanish, science, grammar, and social studies books are online.

The rental fee for a Chromebook is $150 per year. As part of the enrollment packet, each student and parent must review and sign the Chromebook Policy. The policy will be given to students on the first day of school as well.

Should you have any questions, please email tech@stcps.org.

 

Saint Columbkille Partnership School has contracted with Bon Appetit Caterers to provide hot lunch daily, as well as a ham or turkey sandwich. Salad bar and fresh fruit are included with lunch. Bon Appetit has 30 years of food service and cafeteria experience. Our goal is to provide healthy and appetizing lunches for the children.

Lunch is $5 per day, payable online at mymealorder.com. Saint Columbkille Partnership School does not participate in the Free and Reduced lunch program through the USDA.

More information is available on our website at http://stcps.org/parents/hot-lunch-program/

 

Milk is provided for students on an annual basis at a significant discount. The $50 per child Milk Program fee is due in September. The fee will be processed through the FACTS Billing Account. 

 

Saint Columbkille believes in the importance of exploratory learning. Students in Pre-K through grade 5 will go on two field trips and students in grades 6 to 8 will go on three field trips each school year. The yearly fees for field trips will be $40 for grades Pre-K to 5, $50 for grades 6 to 8.

The Loyola Academy students have an opportunity to go on overnight class trips near the end of each school year to reinforce what they have learned, and to build community and social competency.

Grade 6 will go to New Hampshire for Nature’s Classroom. As grade six students are coming of age, they are beginning to understand that they have a responsibility to protect the environment. The grade six curriculum during the course of the year is about discovering the world by examining nature and geography.

Grades 7 & 8 trip alternates each year between Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia, PA. The social studies curriculum is centered around the history of the United States from the pre-colonial period to the modern day. During the Philadelphia visit, students will take part in guided tours of historical venues and places of interest. During the Washington, D.C. trip, students learn about the government and visit the Smithsonian Museums, Arlington National Cemetery, and important national monuments. These trips are also blended with opportunities for students to get to know one another better and to form a more cohesive class.

The cost of these trips will be $500.  The fees will be posted on the FACTS Payment Plan account in July as part of the tuition payment plan. There is limited financial aid available for the trip for students with demonstrated financial need. To apply, please fill out the FACTS Grant and Aid application. See below for more information.
