For the 2022-2023 school year, all SCL students currently in Pre-K through 8th grade will be automatically re-enrolled! We are very excited about this new program.

Why Automatic Re-Enrollment?

Automatic Re-Enrollment (AE) is a process that allows you to enroll once when your child starts at SCL. For each subsequent year, your student’s spot is held until you let us know otherwise. That’s it. This allows us to better fulfill our purpose and mission in the lives of students. When students are automatically re-enrolled, from their initial enrollment until they graduate from SCL, automatic re-enrollment lets us maximize our resources to provide a Catholic education to our families at the highest level of excellence. This information is used as the school makes plans for the following school year. Basically, the simple question is: “Are you coming back to SCL next year?” For our leadership team at SCL, we need to know how many students we will have on the first day of school.

How is Automatic Re-Enrollment different than our traditional re-enrollment process?

Under the traditional enrollment model, each year we expended considerable time re-enrolling families. While there will still be some forms that need updating, there will be less paperwork. Automatic re-enrollment is a once-and-for-all process. Once your student is enrolled, they are on automatic re-enrollment. You will never have to deal with re-enrollment again (unless your family plans change). Again, “Set it, and forget it!” In the event that things do change, you’ll have until February 15th each year to simply notify the office and face absolutely no penalty.

What will Automatic Re-Enrollment look like?

All currently enrolled families will be automatically re-enrolled. The typical re-enrollment season will simply be a communication reminder from the office informing families that might be thinking about leaving our school to notify us by February 15th. This means that most of our SCL families will have the convenience of ignoring this message and doing absolutely nothing! If you have questions please contact

Why do our re-enrollment plans matter?

SCL leadership undertakes careful planning to ensure that we’re prepared to fulfill our mission every year. Until SCL families “sign on the line” that they’re coming back each year, we can’t make solid plans for staffing, programs, materials, curriculum and facility usage. We take the stewardship of tuition dollars entrusted to us every year very seriously. We want to invest these tuition dollars wisely so that we can provide the best education possible for our students.

What do I get out of it?

Guaranteed placement.

Less paperwork.

With increasing enrollment we are near waitlists in some of our grades, so placement in next year’s class is an increasingly sought after spot. With automatic re-enrollment, you are assured of that coveted seat—all the way through graduation!

My student is currently in Pre-K. How do we re-enroll? How do we make sure we get in the correct class?

Automatic re-enrollment is for Pre-K to 8th grade. Students currently enrolled in preschool will also be automatically re-enrolled unless we are notified by February 15. As there are different choices for preschool, you must let us know your program selection by February 28. To do so, contact or call 847-724-2240.

I have no plans to withdraw my student(s) and almost everyone comes back each year. Can’t I just stay until I notify you otherwise?

Yes, you can now! Up until this point, re-enrollment has been an “opt-in” program. In the past, we annually asked every family, “Are you coming back?” With automatic re-enrollment, you will be flipping that script. Rather than an opt-IN annual re-enrollment process, SCL’s annual re-enrollment is now an OPT-OUT process. In other words, you will be re-enrolled unless you notify us otherwise (opt-out) by February 15. Now you’ll never have to worry about re-enrollment again.

What is the Automatic Re-Enrollment Fee?

The re-enrollment fee is $100 which will be credited to the book fee of the new school year. This payment is collected in order to assist the SCL administration in effectively planning for staffing and curriculum for the following school year.

Important Automatic Re-Enrollment Dates:

• January 10: Tuition for the next school year is posted.

• January 31: Registration opens for non-SCL families.

• February 15: Deadline for FACTS account holders to notify SCL if they do not want their Automatic Re-enrollment fee applied to FACTS

• February 28: Preschool Program Selection due

• March: Automatic Re-Enrollment fee is posted to FACTS accounts

How are Automatic Re-Enrollment fees collected through FACTS?

Unless SCL is notified by February 15th, each student’s Automatic Re-Enrollment fee (AE fee) will be posted to FACTS. FACTS payers: The AE fee will be applied to each student’s FACTS account for withdrawal on March 5th or March 20th. Automatic Re-Enrollment Fee is $100 per student.

What happens if the Automatic Re-Enrollment Fee has not been paid?

The student stays in an open status and is not placed on the enrollment list. Once the AE fee is made, the student is then added to the waiting list, and will be placed on the enrollment list as space is available. Remember, Open Enrollment begins for non-SCL families on January 31 and the enrollment list will begin filling up.

What happens if my student is not on the class list because my AE fee hasn’t been paid?

Beginning January 31, new applicants will be given preference on the enrollment list over returning students who have not paid their AE fee. Once the automatic re-enrollment fee has been paid, the returning student(s) are then added to the waiting list, and placed on the enrollment list as space becomes available.

Is the AE fee refundable? I’m planning on keeping my students at SCL until they graduate, but what if there are unique circumstances or God has other plans for our family?

Refunds of the AE fee will be allowed for:

• A relocation of 25 miles or more from the family’s current address.

• An unforeseen circumstance that our School Board approves.

Under these scenarios, the AE payment will be refunded once the family has emailed the Administration Office ( that they are not going to be returning.

What if I am behind on my payments?

All tuition payments and other outstanding school fees (extended care, hot lunch, etc) must be current in order to keep your automatic re-enrollment status active.

What will the tuition be next year?

Tuition amounts have already been published. Also included are potential student fees.
