Scecina Memorial President Joe Therber announced May 26 that the Catholic high school will freeze tuition rates. Tuition rates for 2020-21 will remain the same as the rates for 2019-20.

“Scecina remains committed to making an excellent Catholic education affordable and accessible for all families,” said President Therber. “We are serving our Catholic mission best when we are in tune with our families’ financial realities. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our families, just as it has touched everyone. We are very sensitive to the possible hardships these unusual circumstances have caused.”

Scecina serves children in grades 9-12 and offers honors, dual-credit (college), and Advanced Placement courses, as well as special education services at no extra cost.

“The vast majority of our families already receive tuition assistance thanks to generous Scecina donors. With this tuition freeze, we will continue to keep costs down for our families,” President Therber said.

The school was prepared for continuous eLearning when the state suspended in-person classes in March, he said.

“Scecina had made significant investments in technology, infrastructure, and professional development for teachers so students can continue learning at home,” he said. “We provide a school-owned computer to each student, so we were prepared when the pandemic hit.”

Since late April, Scecina also has been providing a week of meals for school-aged children in Scecina families who sign up each week.

Scecina is planning a July Commencement ceremony for its Class of 2020 in accordance with state regulations for in-person gatherings that are in place at that time.
