Catholic students and non-catholic students have different tuition prices, which should be overlooked.

Since the founding of the school in 1960 there has been a gap in tuition between catholic students and non-catholic students.  The non-catholic families are paying $2,300 more than the catholic families. This has caused some families and students to feel like they are being treated unfairly. This gap should be revised.

 

The reason the catholic families get a discount is because they are parishioners of a catholic church. Considering the family has proved they are a member of a catholic parish, they donate money to the church which then, the church or diocese gives back to the catholic schools of Tulsa. Therefore, due to the money Catholic families donate they get a discount in tuition.

 

Although the families are giving money to parishes and it benefits the catholic schools, students should not be charged more because they do not follow the same faith as other students in the school. The non-catholic students are being treated unfairly and the school should make equal tuition for everyone.

 

As of the 2017-2018 school year the tuition for catholics at Bishop Kelley is $9,125 while non-catholics pay $11,425. The gap is nearly $3,000 and that is a lot more money to be charged just because someone is not catholic.

 

Although the money from the parish helps the catholic schools, students should not be discriminated for who they are and what they believe in. Instead, they should be treated fairly with an equal tuition for all.
