New Tuition Structure

Bishop McLaughlin is excited to announce a new tuition structure for the 2014 – 2015 school year. Our new rates are based on the belief that a Christ-centered Catholic education should be made available to those who may not have the financial means to afford full tuition.  In an effort to make a Bishop McLaughlin education affordable for more families we are instituting a Variable Tuition Rate based on family income.

Reflection Corner

"We must meditate before, during and after everything we do. The prophet says: "I will pray, and then I will understand."  This is the way we can easily overcome the countless difficulties we have to face day after day, which, after all, are part of our work. In meditation we find the strength to bring Christ to birth in ourselves and in others."

- St. Charles Borromeo

"Even if someone has only a yearning to love God, that is enough. It comes from God himself, because God is present wherever there is a desire for his love. Yearn for him always, yearn with greater confidence, and do not be afraid."

- Padre Pio's Spiritual Direction for Every Day

"A real transformation occurs in us through baptism: We die to sin and become one with Jesus Christ in such a way that we share in his very own life. In baptism we receive the sanctifying grace that gives us a heavenly life. It makes us sons and daughters of God, brothers and sisters of Jesus, and heirs of heaven."

- Padre Pio's Spiritual Direction for Every Day

"Always keep before your mind’s eye the obedience of Jesus in the garden and on the cross; he obeyed in immense conflict with no respite. Jesus’ obedience was excellent, and the more bitter it was, the more beautiful it was."
