A Life-Changing Impact

We work hard to make our classical and joyfully Catholic education affordable for as many families as possible.

Although our per-pupil cost is approaching $14,500, our tuition rate is among the lowest in the area at $9,350. This $5,150 automatic scholarship is only possible with the generosity of donors.

Even with this scholarship, around half of our students seek additional aid. Most of these families are only able to pay about $4,000 per child. Your gift helps families afford what would otherwise be impossible. It enables us to provide:

  • Affordable tuition for all (automatic scholarships)
  • Need-based financial aid
  • Merit awards

Your generosity fosters tangible growth in the Catholic Church by helping us raise up future priests, religious, and faithful laity. Thank you for your generosity.
