Tuition Rates

Tuition rates are evaluated and revised each year based on enrollment, expenses, and other considerations.

Because tuition and fees only cover a portion of the cost of educating each child, we rely on fundraising and other contributions to make up the difference.

In compliance with Archdiocesan Policy 1400 and to assure best practices, parents/guardians will be required to sign a tuition and fee agreement annually.

Multi-Student families receive discounted tuition for addition children enrolled (Kindergarten – 8th Grade only).

Tuition increases average 2-6% annually.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance may be available for families who qualify.

To be considered for financial assistance, you must submit a FACTS Grant and Aid Application, upload all required supporting (tax) documents, and pay the online application fee to FACTS through your FACTS account.

This must be done every year that you would like to be considered for aid.

The deadline to apply for financial aid for the next school year is usually mid-March of the current year.

Completion of an annual FACTS Grant and Aid Application is required for ANY form of financial assistance.

The major portion of aid for St. Elizabeth families and new families comes through the
Caritas Scholars program.

This program was initiated in the Archdiocese in order to expand opportunities for Catholic education to qualifying families entering the Catholic
school system for the first time at Kindergarten through Eighth grades, and you may be eligible for three years.

If your family currently has a Caritas Scholar, you will be eligible to reapply for two years, but you must re-submit a new application each year.

Additional financial assistance may occasionally become available through outside/private scholarships which will be announced to those who meet eligibility requirements.

Please Consult the Parent-Student Handbook for Complete Details
