Colleges and universities recognize the value of a Gordon Tech, Catholic, Resurrectionist, College-prep education. Our graduates often credit much of their success in college and in life to the foundation they received at GT. Most families want an education for their children that teaches them content, critical thinking and responding, and prepares them for college and life. Our hope is that GT will prepare our graduates to be men and women who will resurrect society in the spirit of faith, respect, discipline and excellence. Thus, the worth of a GT education is tangible and yet intangible, measurable and yet immeasurable. Tuition: Providing the best possible education requires highly qualified teachers, diverse academic and co-curricular programs, state of the art technology and a well maintained building. While Gordon Tech tries to limit costs and keep our school an excellent and affordable place for your sons and daughters, we recognize that we are tuition driven. Tuition for the 2009-2010 is $8250.00. This is the same tuition rate as in 2008-2009. The real cost of educating each student is $11,325.00 per student. To make up the difference, there are several means to do this: A Registration fee of $350.00 (non-refundable) is required to reserve a space for the upcoming school year and to begin the scheduling process. Due: Friday March 27, 2009. A Fundraising fee of $200.00 is the family way of asking others to help pay for their son or daughter’s tuition. The Annual Fall Raffle (Saturday October 24, 2009) is the major and required activity to accomplish this. There is also a voluntary fundraiser in the spring called: “The Walk to Wrigley.” A Tech fee of $100.00 helps to defray the costs of technology within all areas of the school. A Retreat fee covers the costs of the retreat at the appropriate grade level. A Graduation fee covers most costs of the graduation activities for seniors. We also depend on the generosity of parents, alumni, foundations, bingo and friends who contribute to fundraising activities at GT to cover the gap between the cost per student and the tuition we must charge to provide a quality, Catholic education. Tuition does not cover the cost of : books, uniforms, lunches, and transportation to and from school. Activity Fee: parents are required to pay $150.00 per sport or activity. This covers the cost of rentals, uniforms, supplies, league fees, transportation and coaching/ moderating. . Gordon Tech offers three methods of tuition payment: 1). Full payment of total tuition of fees to the school by August 1st. You will receive a $150.00 discount. 2). Enroll with Sallie Mae payment program plan. See flyer for options.
