I pay $3600 per year for 2 children in a certain Chicago suburb. There is one family fee per year of $50 for books and supplies. Ihave to pay $125 for drawdown tickets, or sell them. I have to pay $125 for chocolate bars, or sell them. I don’t count lunch in the tally because either way, the girls would need lunch. I don’t count uniforms, because if I sent them to public school, they would actually need more clothes, better quality, and more cost. So, $3900 a year.
These are the rates I found in the Diocese of Tampa without revealing school names, where a tution rate was listed (I have the links if you want to check for yourself):

Archdiocese of Miami (no direct links, so it took me some time- one of the worstdiocse sites I’ve ever used):
I found ONE elementary school willing to tell on its web site how much per year. I did find out that Archdiocese of Miami schools take no federal money whatsoever. I found out most elementary schools SEEM to be sliding scale. I found ONE school in Miami with tuition rates clearly posted. They wanted $4900 for one child at the parishioner rate, $8600 for two, $11,500 for three, and $15,000 for four or more. They also assess a buildings improvement charge of $1500 this year per family.
