  • Is the tuition at OLVCS affordable?

    Posted by:

    Yes, the tuition for OLVCS is reasonable for both children from practicing Catholic families and non-Catholic families. It is worth noting that traditionally OLVCS tuition rates are considerably less than other non-public schools in the State College area. It is the Church’s view that the children of practicing Catholic families will not be denied a Catholic education. Parents of children who need financial support for their education at OLVCS should speak with the school principal.
