Business Office

Mission Statement
 
The Business Office supports the Mission and Vision of Bishop Luers High School.  We manage the assets while helping families with individual needs in the best way possible.  We serve our families by doing our best to be good disciples and stewards of what God brings to us daily for those who are currently with us and all who have passed through our doors.
 
In the process we collect funds, balance budgets, manage and record financial activity.  We do our best to be the listening ear by showing support to our families through financial assistance, scholarships and support. 
 
The Business Office staff does this for our Bishop Luers Families, Staff, Alumni, Administration, Teachers, Diocese, Priests, Vendors, and all our Friends.
 
We strive to be accurate, transparent, and consistent with honesty and integrity.
 
Our purpose is to bring honor to God through our beliefs, our behavior, our actions, our words, our attitudes, our work, our values, and our practice.

Facts Tuition Management: ALL FAMILIES must sign up to pay tuition through FACTS Tuition Management. 
 
If you have not received an email from FACTS stating that your account has been finalized you have NOT completed the process. You will not receive a billing invoice until you have signed up on FACTS management for your tuition payments.
 
Some Scholarships, financial Aid and SGO's have not all been applied. We are in the process of completing applications and meeting with committees. If you need to make a payment arrange on your FACTS management account please email Lori Price at LPrice@bishopluers.org. A three-day notice is needed to make any FACTS changes. Please provide the information in writing by emailing Mrs. Lori Price at LPrice@bishopluers.org.

What if I make a change on FACTS Tuition Management?

Any change request for FACTS tuition accounts must be made in writing and a $10 change fee (first change, $25 fee after first change) must be paid BEFORE a change can be made. A 72-hour notice is required for all changes and the fee must be paid prior to the change being completed.

Bus transportation adds stop in Roanoke, earlier pickup in Huntington

 
St. Elizabeth/Huntington route now includes a stop in Roanoke. The Huntington stop leaves five minutes earlier. Please adjust your arrival time. We still have plenty of room if your student needs a ride to school in the morning. Get more information and schedule here.

529 Expansion for K12 Tuition in the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017

 
 
Effective January 1, 2018 families may use 529 education savings plans for K12 tuition at private schools.  We have created the fact sheet below - please share widely!  It's important to get this news out to all Catholics, not just school parents. Grandparents, Godparents, Aunts/Uncles all can help fund a 529 and help send a child to Catholic school. Please post, share, print, email and insert in your parish bulletin!

529 FACT Sheet

 

However, as you can expect, there has been significant push back from parental choice opponents at the state level. Please see this "Next Steps" document for school and policy leaders with recommendations on how to assess and respond to attacks on the 529 Expansion. Please use this guide as a tool to create your own state-specific plan!

529 Next Steps

 

Finally, to get a feel for how opponents are responding, here is a list of news articles from across the country, I will continue to add more to this list!
