Tuition & Aid

Saint Mary’s Catholic High School bases its tuition policy on the premise that tuition payments are an investment in your child’s education and Christian formation. It is the duty of the school administration, in the spirit of Christian stewardship, to ensure that adequate financial resources are available for the school and that enrollment is as affordable as possible to all families.

Full Tuition – $15,500/year         *Participating Catholic Tuition – $12,100/year

Financial Aid - Tuition Assistance Opportunities

We have an established tuition assistance program that helps make a Saint Mary’s education possible for most families.  School donors, benefactors, and various foundations and organizations make available tuition assistance awards to students based on their demonstrated financial need.  Tuition assistance awards can only be applied to the tuition cost.  Additional school fees are at the expense of the family.  Applications for tuition assistance are made available at the time of registration.  Deadlines for tuition assistance must be met in order to assure full access to available resources.  Please download the current Tuition Assistance Opportunities and School Tuition Organization handouts for more details.

Payment Options

Families unable to pay the full tuition rate for monthly installments can make payment arrangements with Saint Mary’s Business Office. The amount of tuition assistance received is deducted from the total remaining tuition and subsequent payments are adjusted accordingly. Additional school fees can also be rolled into your student’s tuition balance. For the sake of your family’s security and peace of mind and for the general financial stability of the school, we encourage parents or guardians to contact the school as soon as possible when circumstances change and they are experiencing economic difficulties. Please contact Saint Mary’s Business Office at (602) 251-2517 or (602) 251-2510.
