Tuition & Fees

At Holy Family, we understand firsthand that making the choice of a private, Catholic education is a commitment for your family. But we also believe that anything truly valuable demands some type of sacrifice, and we are committed to making sure that every dollar you spend toward your child’s future

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 Nativity St. Joseph Key West
Church of the Resurrection St. Joseph the Worker
St. Anthony St. Patrick
St. Raphael Cathedral
