Registrations for the 2016-2017 school year… Registration Now Open Spanish Registration Now Open

Families must be registered in the parish in order to register members for Faith Formation.

Forms are available outside the Faith Formation Office, at the Welcome table in gathering area and Online at www.holycrossatlanta.org and should be filled out prior to arriving at registration.

Fees:  We have a new fee structure for the 2016-2017 year as the price of books and material has gone up.  This is our first increase in 5 years and is necessary to continue to bring the quality program to our families.

$75.00 per student
$200 family maximum

Families registering in May will receive a $10.00 discount off  per- person price or a $25.00 discount off the family max if paid in full before August 1st.  We encourage families to pay their full balance at the time of registration; however, if you are unable a deposit of 25% can be made and a payment plan set up so that the full balance be paid no later than Nov. 30, 2016.  (We order material based on registration numbers so once registered you are responsible for the full cost of the session.)

If you have not paid your 2015-2016 registration fee in full you will need to do so before registering for the 2016-2017 session.

*No child will be turned away because a family is unable to pay,  please contact Barb Garvin, Director of Faith Formation or Fr. Jude Michael to make an appointment to be eligible for a scholarship.
