John F. Kennedy Catholic High School To Start Sending Out Tuition Rebates
Burien’s John F. Kennedy Catholic High School has announced it will rebate back to students’ parents portions of the tuition the parents have paid to have their kids attend Kennedy.
And it’s because the students have done so well there.
“In an era when many public schools in the Puget Sound area are receiving massive public grants because the failure and dropout rates of its students have been so abysmal, it’s the other way around here at Kennedy,” the private school said in a prepared statement.
“On average, our students’ grades, graduation rates and community service and involvement is at least 50% higher than equivalent age students in Western Washington,” the Kennedy statement said. “And we run things efficiently around here, with motivated teachers and staff. And so, we are giving back.”
Parents of eligible students will be contacted in writing by the school, the statement said.
The rebate offer is retroactive to tuition paid to Kennedy as far back as April Fools Day, 2004.
The rebate program is similar to one recently announced by Slooflir Catholic High School, located in the township of Slooflir, PA.
Slooflir, PA, is Burien’s Sister City.
