As with any private educational institution, tuition is the main source of revenue for St. Theresa Catholic School. At our school we use the FACTS system, a tuition management service that provides electronic access to individual student accounts, as well as convenient payment options. In addition, to providing convenience for our parents, the FACTS systems also increases the efficiency of the accounting department by providing real-time access to tuition information. Detailed information is given to each family at the time of registration. All families are expected to use FACTS if not paying in total at the beginning of the year.

St. Theresa Catholic School encourages family participation in fundraisers which supplement the tuition and most importantly help foster an environment of community amongst parents, faculty, and staff. Major fundraisers include the Parish Fair, the Golf Tournament, the Dinner Dance and the Fishing Tournament.
School Service and Outreach
In order to incorporate the practice of generosity and charity in our teaching of Catholic values, our students also help many people in the following programs:
- Respect Life - usually in October. St. Theresa Catholic School promotes respect for life through fundraising and awareness-raising efforts in collaboration with the Respect Life office of the Archdiocese of Miami. This supports expectant mothers who choose life for their children.
- St. Ann's/Sacred Heart Missions - in November and December. Students bring non-perishable food items for immigrant families who have a very difficult time in the non-growing seasons. In December we help these Missions by providing toys and Christmas gifts for these children.
- Students also help with personal care supplies for homeless people. Through these opportunities the school hopes to instill an ongoing sense of generosity and personal self-giving.
Each family is asked to contribute some type of service to our parish and school family. This volunteer help provides service to the students and the parish which otherwise would have to be paid for. Forms suggesting various types of family service activities are given at the beginning of the year. Additional opportunities are available as projects arise and parents are welcome to get involved anytime by contacting one of the Home and School or Advisory Board Members.
