The costs vary depending on whether you are a member of the parish with which the school is affiliated (cheapest), a member of another Catholic parish (middle), or other (most expensive).

The cheapest I've seen are for the parishes in downtown Raleigh. The Cathedral School is $4100 for members of the parish; Our Lady of Lourdes is $4180 for members. The most expensive I've seen is The Franciscan School at $4830 for members. For Catholics from other parishes, add about 12%-15% more (depends on the school).

Need-based financial aid is available at all of them.

Default Raleigh Catholic Schools

My son attended Cathedral for 8 years, he is now at High School at Cardinal Gibbons. Cathedral is a great school, small class sizes, the kids have all known each other for the most part since Kindergarten. Catheral offers a terrific education with caring teachers, Father Jerry, Pastor of the Sacred Heart Cathedral is AWESOME. He is very involved with the school.

Down side to Cathedral is the facilities, since it is located right down town there is no playground or baseball, soccer field. All games are "away". Downtown location is also a plus for culture. Give Cathedral a look, we were very happy with it.

We are relocating to Raleigh from Chicago and I'd like feedback on Catholic elementary schools. Our son would start pre-k next year. We obviously don't have a parish yet, so I'd like a sense of the community.

Most parishes have their own elementary school, and they are very well run schools some of them are even national award winners in some categories. Would just go online and check out the schools, depending on where you are moving to.

It is a lot more expensive here. We moved from up North this year and it it is a little over double what we were paying. Like a previous poster said though there are some amazing blue ribbon schools in the area. We are at The Franciscan School and love it. Our neighbor attends Our Lady of Lourdes and is very happy. I toured several before choosing knowing they were all expensive compared to what we were used to, good luck!

I like The Franciscan School, which is affiliated with St. Francis of Assisi in North Raleigh. My son has been attending since Kindergarten and we have been quite happy. The church itself is run by Franciscan Friars, and has a "liberal" vibe that I like.

The cost will definitely exceed $3K a year. The schools post the tuition fees, but IIRC it is in the upper $6K range per year for a parishioner.
