Tuition & Tuition Assistance (Fair Share Tuition)

Tuition & Tuition Assistance


Welcome to Tri-Cities Prep.

Once your student has been accepted to Tri-Cities Prep, you will begin the process of completing the admissions application.   The following information will be helpful.

Full tuition for the 2023-2024 school year is $11,300.  This amount reflects the costs incurred when running a school, including our efforts to fairly compensate our valued teachers and staff.  The Board of Directors is committed to continue efforts to bring that compensation closer to the Pasco School District Salary scale.

Recognizing that not all families are able to pay full tuition, the Board of Directors met in 2017 to create a fair and equitable system for our families who are unable to meet full tuition.  We call this system Fair Share Tuition.

The basic concepts of Fair Share Tuition are as follows:

  • Tuition is based on a family’s usable income as calculated by the Tri-Cities Prep Fair Share Tuition Estimation Worksheet.
  • The Tri-Cities Prep Fair Share Tuition Estimation Worksheet  (Spanish version) serves as an estimation recognizing that it may not capture extenuating circumstances.
  • The worksheet asks for 1040 income + non-taxable income, family size, and partner school tuition.
  • The worksheet will calculate an estimate of the family’s total tuition which includes registration and student life fees, and monthly payments.

Tuition at Tri-Cities Prep is separated into 2 sections:

Section 1:  Full tuition is $11,300/student (2023-2024).    Additional documentation is not required.

Section 2:   All Families wishing to apply for tuition assistance are asked to fill out the FACTS application while completing their Enrollment Application.*

*All families applying for tuition assistance are required to complete the FACTS application and apply for the Nazareth Guild, and if applicable, the Central Washington Catholic Foundation Grant through FACTS.

These foundations have their own set of questions and requirements separate from Tri-Cities Prep.

In order to be considered for tuition assistance, the FACTS application must be completed.  This application contains information utilized by Tri-Cities Prep, The Nazareth Guild, and The Central Washington Catholic Foundation for assessing the need for financial assistance.  As an institution, we rely on the generosity of The Nazareth Guild and The Central Washington Catholic Foundation for their financial support.

We strongly encourage families to utilize the Fair Share Tuition Estimation Worksheet  (Spanish version) to determine if you might qualify for tuition assistance, prior to doing so through FACTS. 

The deadline for submission is March 31, 2023. If you are applying after this date, please contact the office at 509.546.2465 and ask for Lisa Jacobs.
