Tuition goes 'on sale' at Catholic Wauwatosa school

Published on: 3/5/2012

Mercy Academy, a Catholic K-8 school in Wauwatosa, is trying to attract new families this year by offering 50% off elementary school tuition.

The offer is good for only three families and has been made possible through an agreement with Relevant Radio, which has a tuition assistance program, according to a news release.

Maureen Klein, a Mercy Academy board member, sent the information to the Journal Sentinel and noted that the tuition voucher could help out families who are questioning the cost of private-school tuition in tight economic times.

That got me wondering how many other small parochial schools have run similar tuition discounts recently to try to keep families or attract new ones.
