Poll: Referendum & Consolidation (20 member(s) have cast votes)

Do you think a consolidation of Greater Clark County Schools, West Clark Community Schools, and Clarksville Community Schools would benefit the residents of Clark County better than potential referendums in the seperate corporations?

 There is also Christian Academy in New Albany but it's tuition is about $5000 to $6000.  It does accept vouchers which can offset a large portion of that cost for qualifying families.

 

I am hearing through various sources that Providence will be raising tuition to $14,000+ next year. I do not have verification, yet. Can anyone here confirm nor deny?

If you're talking about the 2015/16 school year, the tuition is a little less than $12K...I can't remember exactly...We got a letter and it had gone up a little as it does every year, but not that much.

 

Update...Found my letter...Tuition for students whose family attend a local deanery church it is $11, 270...And for those who don't ( mainly non-Catholics) it is $12,795...So for that group your figure was a little closer than I thought...I never pay attention to the non-deanery tuition.

Thanks Jules. I thought $14K sounded a little excessive.

You are correct -- most of the parochial high schools in Louisville cost around $11,000. The private schools like Collegiate and KCD are much more.

That is why so many parents in the GCCS district choose Rock Creek -- a charter school in Sellersburg where there is no tuition. Charter schools are public schools but they receive no funding whatsoever from property taxes. Other parents choose to send their children to Silver Creek or NA/FC. There is also Christian Academy in New Albany but it's tuition is about $5000 to $6000. It does accept vouchers which can offset a large portion of that cost for qualifying families.


I wouldn't say alot. Rock Creek has like 375 total students in all grades.
