Admissions & Registration
St. Mark tuition remains one of the lowest in the area. Our parish has chosen to maintain a very affordable
tuition rate for parents who want to provide their children with quality Catholic education.
Practicing St. Mark Parishioner
A practicing parishioner is registered in St. Mark Parish, practices their faith by regular
attendance at Mass, and contributes to the financial support of the parish by the consistent use of Sunday envelopes, giving
minimally $10.00 a week. Additionally, parents and guardians are required to participate in the Gift Card Program, which they will find mutually beneficial to their family and the school. An easily attainable minimum annual purchase of $5,000 is expected to maintain your Practicing Parishioner status, please see the Gift Card coordinator in the parish office to see how easy it is!
