And how many of these Mexicans can afford to toss $6 Grand per kid so they can get catechism class instead of geography. Five hundred a month extra is a LOT to a poor family.

But don't panic, some right wingers who have never read the Constitution will eventually find a way to fund religious schools with tax money.

It sure is. Unless that Mexican guy is working two jobs washing dishes in the back burner. A matter of fact not even two jobs cant afford to pay tuition.

That's why suburban Catholic schools having strong enrollment. They are following the demographics. There are also city Catholic schools showing strong enrollment and they are located in affluent areas. St. Ignatius Loyola and Epiphany turn down more applicants than they admit.

Demographics are not the only reasons for closures. For some, it has to do with organizational and management issues, as well as curriculum flexibility. There have been schools that have re-opened as academies.

Bottomline is that it's not a decline in the Catholic school system. They are merely recponstituting themselves.

I've gotten dizzy trying to find the COST of St. Ignatius Loyola School on East 84th. Is it a state SECRET? Will merely READING the number cause a coronary? All other schools list their fees but not SIL, at least not anywhere that Google can find it.

How much IS the joint?
(I found Epiphany, between $6 and $7K which is not too far out of line with others.)

St. Ignatius Loyola is about $7.5K/yr as of SY 2010. You need to attend the open house to find out the rates.

The fees are set forth in Revelation, chapter 21. Probably.

Uhm, no. You should call or attend the open house to get their latest fees, open house if you want it in document form.

That sounds like the way sleazy operations sell TIMESHARES. Does SIL feed you a chicken dinner?

(But actually I was expecting MUCH higher truition for St. Iggy's.)

Holy COW. For comparison sake I loooked up the tuition for the EPISCOPAL St. Lukes School in the Village (Hudson Street):

Quote:
Junior Kindergarten: $33,125
Kindergarten-Grade 4: $33,125
Grade 5: $33,400
Grade 6: $33,550
Grade 7: $33,975
Grade 8: $34,425
So I guess the RC Church is still kicking in a ton of money to keep their kids free from HERESY! I guess also it explains why Loyola has to turn kids away.


Marymount School (Fifth Ave and 84th) is $38,000. Is that Catholic?
Quote:
For over eight decades, Marymount School has been committed to the founding vision of the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary
Also about $38K for THE GRACE SCHOOL on Fourth Avenue...Cooper Union to 14th St. I think they bought their way out of Church affiliation.
