Saint Lawrence Catholic School uses a tuition management service called Smart Tuition. All families must enroll in Smart Tuition in order to pay tuition and other fees. Smart Tuition enrollment forms are available in the school office. All fees for a given month are tallied at the end of the month. The charges are sent to Smart Tuition on the fifteenth day of the month, and will be due, along with any tuition payment, on the first of the next month.
