Tuition & Fees

Our small class sizes, excellent faculty, facilities and programming require a significant investment by parents, and we honor the sacrifices of our families to make education a priority. Families are also supported by the thousands of alumni, family, friends, local parishes and community members.

In addition, we offer financial assistance to many families.

Student Activity Fee: $600 per student

Please note that one fee of $600 will be charged for 2019-20. There will no longer be a $200 family fundraising fee. The Board of Trustees reviewed and approved the tuition and activity fee for the 2019-20 school year to simplify the collection of fees and to encourage participating in Secion III sports, the plays, and STEM club.

The student activity fee includes: your student’s instructional fee (textbooks, technology fees, PSAT fees, class retreats, and basic art supplies), family fundraising fee, all Section III sports, play fees and STEM club fees. The student activity fee will be included in your tuition bill and it may be included in your payment plan.


Families may also offset the cost of tuition by utilizing the Great Lakes SCRIP program. With every SCRIP you purchase, you’re earning money back towards the cost of tuition. SCRIP cards can be used for groceries, clothing, gifts, gasoline, vacations and more! More information, including order forms, is available here.
