Tuition and Fees

Our Lady of the Wayside has options for families needing tuition assistance: Invest in Kids through Illinois Tax Credit Scholarship Program (using Empower Illinois as the Scholarship Granting Organization) or our own Gloria Rebek Scholarship Fund. It is our hope that we don’t turn away any family because of financial need. Please talk to Principal David Wood, or 847-255-0050, ext 244, if you need financial assistance. 

OLW does offer discounted tuition rates for children with more than one student enrolled in all-day kindergarten to eighth grade. Tuition information is listed below as well as the Tuition Agreement, the Student Registration Form, and information about medical and other forms that are needed to complete registration.
