Tuition Financial Aide

The Diocese of Oakland wants to make Catholic identity available to as many families as possible. Tuition assistance for qualified students whose families cannot pay full tuition fees is available inside the Diocese from Family Aide - Catholic Education (FACE) and outside the Diocese from the Bay Area Scholarships for Inner-city Children fund (BASIC). (See the left side of this page.) Look for more information in the spring newsletters and family envelopes, or call the programs directly.

Tuition Rates

The parish, not the school, sets the criteria for the following two tuition rates.

In Parish Rate - Active parishioners of St. Bede Parish are families that use their time and talents to support the Parish. This includes, but is not limited to, attending weekend Mass regularly, participating in service to the parish, (e.g. eucharistic minister, lector, music ministry, usher, etc.), and financially support the parish (a minimum of $40.00 per month) in the first plate collection through the twelve-month calendar year. Parish contributions are tax deductible.

  • To qualify for this rate, families must be registered and participate actively in the life of St. Bede Parish. 
  • The parish will confirm registration and active participation. 
    • If regular contributions, as determined by the parish, and participation in parish services and ministries cease, tuition payments will change to the In Parish rate.

Out of Parish Rate - This rate is for families who are not active parishioners of St. Bede Parish.
