I've searched all over the web and this forum, high and low and everywhere in between, but can't seem to find the information I'm looking for. Does anyone know what an average salary might be for a high school teacher at one of the Catholic high schools in S.A.? And what about benefits- are those covered at all by the diocese? And finally, do faculty members get reduced (or free???) tuition for their children to attend the parochial schools? Hopefully someone can help us out here....I've checked the archdiocese website and the site devoted to the Catholic schools dept. I've searched this forum, and I've also done a google search. How can this info be so hard to find? Hopefully someone here can chime in. Thanks!

at central about 14 years ago i know of a few teachers whose kids went on a very highly reduced tuition. the faculty also hovered around $35K to start and about 40 with a few years under their belt. alot of their non brotherhood instructors were paid very little and also had little experience, but were CC alumni and knew how the curriculum worked.

Employees of Incarnate Word High School, St. Anthony High School, and UIW receive tution benefits for both high schools and the University. Employees of these schools also receive fifty percent off the tuition at St. Peter Prince of the Apostles and St. Anthony Elementary. Tuition at the high schools is 75 percent off for employees. DM me for more details.

I don't know what the salaries are like, but I have heard that they are lower than public school teacher salaries.

Health coverage is not through the diocese for IWHS, SAHS, and UIW. There is group coverage and it is a small group, so it is pricey. I don't know about retirement benefits at the two high schools.

I don't know anyone who teaches at a Catholic high school here. I do know 2 people who taught at a Catholic K-8 school. One had 3 years experience and the other had 5 years; both made less than 30K a year. This was not a long time ago - they both last taught at a Catholic school in the 2006-2007 school year. I'm not sure if it varies per school or if there is an archdiocese standard. I can only say that moving to a public school, they each made about 18K more per year. (Not bashing Catholic schools - I taught at one before I moved here and I would teach at one here in a heartbeat if it was similar to the one I was at previously and if the salary was even within 10K of what I'm making now.)

Thanks so much for the responses. I'm pretty sure the pay would vary from school to school, and probably from grade to grade, because the tuition varies from school to school. I think that would figure. Also, it seems that if there was a standard (wish there was!) they would post it on the diocese website, right? And I wouldn't call telling the facts "bashing" at all. No worries! I'm just trying to do a little digging for my hubby....

I know of one Catholic school on the south side that is paying $20,000 for the current school year. I am looking for a teaching position and found out about this one through the alternative certification program I have recently completed. I don't understand how a school can expect someone to be able to live on that kind of salary. It's insulting !!
