Admission Department and Process - Resurrection School - Sunnyvale


In 2013, Resurrection School and the Diocese of San Jose were the recipients of a planned gift, The Hellwig Family Education Fund, from one of our long-time parishioners, Ray Hellwig. Mr. Hellwig and his wife felt strongly about the values of a Catholic education. With the support of their generous gift, their goal of providing tuition assistance to those families in need AND the ability to minimize tuition increases allows their support to touch every single family at Resurrection School. We are forever grateful to the Hellwig family for their faith and support of the education Resurrection School provides to our community.

Now more than ever, we are truly appreciating the benefits of this gift. COVID-19 has financially impacted many families and this gift has enabled us to once again minimize increases to our annual tuition rates, while still providing an excellent Catholic education.

The Tuition & Fees Schedule for 2024-25 can be found here.

Explanation of Fees
Registered Catholic Family Rate
– To qualify for the “Registered Catholic Family” tuition rate, families must be Catholic, the student baptized, and the family registered in a parish within the Diocese of San Jose. Families should attend Mass regularly as evidenced by the regular use of the offertory envelopes, and/or participation in the various ministries and programs of the parish community. Contact the Finance Office for more information.

Extended Care Fees  Extended Care fees are available on an hourly basis, for $9 per hour.

Field trips – The school Parent Teacher Group (PTG) is responsible for the school’s fundraising efforts. As a result, each classroom teacher receives $1,000 from the PTG to cover field trips, classroom activities, auction support, and misc. expenses. There are no field trip fees charged to families.

Science Camp Fees – The 5th grade class, the PTG and the parish’s Italian Catholic Federation work in collaboration to support the 6th Grade Science Camp trip to Walden West every year by hosting an Italian Pasta Dinner at the school.  Half of the registration fee for Science Camp is covered by fundraising efforts providing families a discounted price for the week of adventure and learning. Fifth grade families participate in the ICF Pasta Dinner by attending the event, donating items, or volunteering to help so that their costs are subsidized by this fundraiser when they attend Science Camp in 6th Grade the following year.

Non-Discriminatory Policy – Catholic schools in the Diocese of San Jose as witnesses of our Catholic faith do not unlawfully discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and/or ethnic origin, age, sex or disability in administration of educational policies, scholarship and loan program, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

Tuition Assistance

Resurrection School is committed to providing financial aid to our families desiring a Catholic education for their children. Financial Aid is available for families through the Diocese of San Jose, the Basic Fund and the school itself. Financial Aid is awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need. Financial aid decisions at the Diocesan and school level are guided by the family’s financial data submitted to TADS and reviewed by the school’s financial aid administrative committee.

  • Applying for tuition assistance has no impact on admission decisions.
  • Tuition assistance is awarded purely based on financial need that is assessed by TADS.
  • Families are required to re-apply for financial assistance every year.

Diocese of San Jose Assistance – The Diocese of San Jose offers tuition assistance based upon need to qualifying families throughout all the elementary schools in the Diocese of San Jose. This resource is typically accompanied by aid from the school.

The Basic Fund – The BASIC Fund is a privately funded organization providing partial-tuition scholarships to low-income families across the Bay Area, helping them afford the cost of tuition at the private school of their choice. This program is intended as a helping hand for families enrolling their children at a private school for the first time.

Resurrection School Aid – Resurrection School annually budgets financial aid to assist families in our school community wishing to obtain a Catholic education for their children. To apply for school aid, families must submit their financials to TADS, and TADS provides the school principal and the financial aid administrative committee with a report to assist in the evaluation and distribution of school aid. Catholic families actively involved in a parish in the Diocese of San Jose are also eligible for the “Registered Catholic Family” tuition rate.
