Tuition & Affordability


We welcome. We nurture. We serve.

San Carlos School provides a WCEA highly-rated academic, socio-emotionally supported, and faith-filled education. The SCS Finance Committee and Advisory Board work diligently to create a rigorous core subject program integrated with specialty instruction in Technology, Art, Music, Theater, P.E., Library, and Public Speaking. San Carlos School is fully tuition-driven, with additional financial support from Annual Fund, PTO fundraisers, Community Donations, Branches Resale Shoppe proceeds, and multiple grants. 

Our community believes in the power of prayer and family. We welcome the input and help of our trusted adults through a Time and Talent Program which connects school and home. Family involvement is the number one indicator of student success, and our T&T program benefits both family and parent as we create a nurturing and supportive environment for our students to thrive. Through our Annual Fund and grant awards, we are able to serve those needing additional tuition support (grants from $1,000 - $2,000 per student are available for those who qualify).

Time and Talent Program & Financial Aid

Families can reduce their first single-student tuition rate by 15% through participation in the Time and Talent (T&T) program. Families may volunteer or donate products to equal 50 hours of T&T and reduce single tuition by $1,250. T&T financially helps a family and school meet their goals. Additionally, the financial aid link is live in the registration portal to offer additional assistance for those who qualify.  

According to the California Education Code and the Diocese of Monterey Policy, all volunteers having contact with minor students are required to complete the Safe Environment for Children Program in order to perform volunteer work at the school.  

Once a student has been offered enrollment and is registered for the school year, the family may apply for tuition assistance online through their FACTS Family Portal.  Tuitions Assistance is only available for enrolled students.  See our Tuition Assistance tab for more information.

Families are required to enroll in FACTS Tuition Management as a condition of enrollment. Tuition can be paid in full or monthly (10 months).
