Cost to Educate

The cost to educate a single child with developmental and/or intellectual disabilities at Mercy is $21,000 for the 2016-2017 school year.

Additional Fees

Families are responsible for parent pay, as determined by FACTS. Families also are responsible for the following fees:

  • $140 registration fee per child
  • $150 for activities
  • $800 fundraising obligation as set by the Parent Alliance*
  • $25 for Parent Alliance membership
*Mercy’s success and continued improvement relies heavily on the financial and volunteer support of its parents and the community. The Mercy Parent Alliance helps facilitate this support by providing fundraising and volunteer opportunities that raise money for the school and promote community awareness of Mercy.

Scholarship Opportunities

Families must complete an application via the FACTS system to determine what scholarships they are eligible to receive. Parent pay is determined after financial information is reviewed.

Mercy offers a very generous Scholarship and Tuition Assistance Program to help lessen the difference between parent pay and the cost to educate and assist families who believe that Mercy provides the best educational option for their child. We encourage all families to speak to their public school district officials about supporting their child’s education at Mercy, if it has been determined that the district does not have reasonable placement for the student. Mercy also offers discounted rates for subsequent siblings.
