Tuition & Fees

At Holy Family, we understand firsthand that making the choice of a private, Catholic education is a commitment for your family.

What does "supporting" or "non-supporting" mean? 

A "supporting" parish is one of the 11 parishes in Dubuque that make a financial contribution to our schools every year based on the number of student members each parish has pursuing Catholic education. A "non-supporting" parish is a Catholic parish outside of this corporation. The following parishes are supporting parishes:

Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost, Holy Trinity, Sacred Heart) St. Catherine
Holy Family New Melleray St. Columbkille

Church of the Resurrection St. Joseph the Worker
St. Anthony St. Patrick
