Registration/Book fee is payable at registration time.  No student is registered or re-registered until this annual fee has been paid.


At the time of each student's registration, parents at the Catholic Academy enter into an agreement for payment of tuition.

  • The Catholic Academy of West Buffalo uses FACTS MANAGEMENT for tuition collection for monthly payments.  Payments are electronically deducted from either your checking or savings account. Students whose tuition is in arrears for two months will not be allowed to attend classes. If the school is notified by FACTS MANAGEMENT that the account is FROZEN or CLOSED, the student may not attend class until the account is re-activated.  No exceptions will be made.
  • Parents have an option of paying in full in August and saving 5%.
  • The $150 fundraising fee will be added to your tuition payment to make it easier for parents to meet the obligation
