Tuition & Financial Aid

In the spirit of St. Ignatius, Jesuit High School's administration, Board of Trustees, faculty, and staff intentionally strive to keep a Jesuit education affordable and accessible by charging less than the actual cost of education for all students. In addition to supporting a subsidized tuition model and controlling cost inflation for families, Jesuit High School provides significant need-based financial aid. For the 2017-18 academic year, 26% of students and families (340 students; more than the equivalent of an entire class) received $3,075,000 in financial assistance

Financial Aid Application Process

Financial Aid Application Process for 2018-19

Jesuit High School strives to provide a Jesuit education to families, regardless of financial circumstances. For the 2017-18 school year, Jesuit has provided $3.075 million in need-based tuition assistance to 26% of students (financial aid awards range from 0%-90% of the tuition rate).

Our financial aid application process for 2018-19 is online through FACTS. Please click here to access the online application for financial aid. There will be a $27 application fee.

IMPORTANT NOTE: FINANCIAL AID APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED IF THEY ARE SUBMITTED AFTER THE JANUARY 12, 2018 DEADLINE.

FACTS processes all the applications for financial aid through a computer analysis and makes recommendations to Jesuit regarding the number of awards to be granted and the number of dollars in each award. The financial aid committee reviews the recommendations and makes the final decisions. Letters regarding your financial aid award will be mailed to you on March 15, 2018. Due to the high demand, not every family that qualifies for financial aid will receive an award.

In the spirit of St. Ignatius, Jesuit High School's administration, Board of Trustees, faculty, and staff intentionally strive to keep a Jesuit education affordable and accessible by charging less than the actual cost of education for all students.

For the 2017-18 school year, the subsidized tuition rate is $14,400 while the actual cost of education per student is $17,000. This difference of $2,600 per student is made up through voluntary gifts above tuition.

Each year, families who can afford to pay the actual cost of education for their student(s) through the Family Partnership Program are asked to do so. Approximately 30% of our families currently choose to give a gift above the subsidized tuition rate, making the school more affordable for all our families.

Financial Assistance

In addition to supporting a subsidized tuition model and controlling cost inflation for families, Jesuit High School provides significant need-based financial aid. For the 2017-18 academic year, 26% of students and families (340 students; more than the equivalent of an entire class) received $3,075,000 in financial assistance. Jesuit has chosen to use all available funds to help families who need it; therefore we are not able to offer any merit-based aid or scholarships. All financial aid awards are need-based and determined through the FACTS application process.

Payment Options

Tuition Payment Options

Registration

Families wishing to enroll a student at Jesuit High School formalize their financial obligation by signing a Parent Financial Commitment agreement. This agreement describes the parent/guardian responsibility to pay the current tuition rate by one of two approved methods.

Methods of Tuition Payment

Parents/guardians can choose one of the following methods of payment at Jesuit High School.

A. Payment in full on or before July 14, 2017. Payment may be made by cash or check.

B. A monthly payment plan through a private institution. There is a $300 yearly fee to use this option. Please contact the Treasurer's Office for more information.

For those families that have committed to donations above tuition, we ask that those payments be made prior to December 31, 2017.

Delinquent Accounts

Families with delinquent tuition accounts must arrange for payment of past due tuition with the Business Office prior to the end of the second semester. Failure to do so will result in proceedings for the student's withdrawal from Jesuit High School.

Any seniors whose accounts are not current on the first day of May will have their transcripts withheld until payment is made in full.

Should Jesuit High School incur any attorney's fees, court costs or other expenses in collecting the balance due, parents or guardians agree to pay all such costs and to consider such costs as additional fees due. Fees, tuition and other expenses shall be paid when stipulated by the school. The cost of textbooks and individual class fees are not included in the tuition. There are NO refunds on class fees.

Tuition Charge and Refund Policy

When a student enrolls or withdraws from the school, the tuition and /or financial aid charge liability will be determined by applying the appropriate percentage of annual tuition.
