Tuition and Aid

An Affordable Education

Tuition & Fees

We believe every Catholic family should have the choice to send their child to a school which prepares them for the spiritual and academic challenges they will face after graduation.

The cost to educate a student at Chesterton Academy for the 2024 -2025 school year has reached nearly $14,500, but thanks to the generosity of donors, all of our students will receive an automatic scholarship of $5,150.

Therefore, our tuition rate for the 2024 - 2025 school year is $9,350. This tuition rate is one of the lowest in the Twin Cities. Our annual enrollment/re-enrollment fee is $500. Though we strive to keep tuition affordable, in order to keep up with rising costs, families can expect a modest increase of about 5% in our tuition rate each year.

Additionally, since tuition does not cover the full cost of an education at Chesterton, families are expected to aid in fundraising and recruiting efforts throughout the school year.


Financial Aid

Each year, we distribute around one million dollars of automatic scholarship and financial aid to qualified families. To be qualified for aid, a family must complete a 3rd party assessment tool to determine appropriate need levels. In addition, a student’s grades, attendance, behavior as well as a parent’s ability to assist with fundraising or volunteer activities, impacts the amount of annual aid offered.

The student admissions process must be completed in full before being considered for financial assistance. Greater priority is given to families who complete this process prior to December 31st.
