Tuition and Financial Assistance


TUITION & FEE AMOUNTS

The School Board has set the tuition for the 2017-2018 school year at $6,700/year.  There is also an Extracurricular and Activities Fee of $300 due annually on August 1st.  This fee helps to offset the travel expenses, registration fees, and equipment costs associated with school and faith formation activities, clubs, and athletic teams.

Multi-Student Tuition Discount

A discount of $1,000/year will be offered for the second student and the third (and over) student(s) are free.  Multi-student tuition discounts will be awarded annually per family, for students attending simultaneously.

Tuition & Fees Payment Options

The School Board has adopted the following payment policy for tuition.

Families can pay their bill in one of three ways:

1.  A one time lump-sum payment through ACH due August 1, or

2. Two equal payments through ACH due August 1 and January 1, or

2.  10 equal monthly payments through ACH due on the 1st of the months of August through May.


 PARISH & SCHOOL FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE/GRANTS

It is the intent that qualified Catholic students should not be denied an education at Father McGivney Catholic High School because of lack of financial resources. Some parishes have made generous financial assistance funds available to children of their parishioners.

Because of the sensitive nature of the information involved, neither the school nor the parishes evaluate the initial financial need of financial assistance applicants.  The school has contracted with FACTS to process financial assistance requests.  The deadline for applying for financial assistance is April 15th.  Financial assistance will be reviewed on an annual basis.

FMCHS SCHOLARSHIPS & GRANTS

In addition, there are a number of academic and need-based grants available annually through outside organizations.  If you are receiving financial assistance from the school, any outside scholarship(s) will be applied to help offset the financial aid you have received from us.  If outside scholarships are awarded, this amount goes toward the deficit between actual tuition and your payments to the school, so your family contribution amount would be the same.

The Assumption Alumni Scholarship

The Assumption Alumni Scholarship committee offers a scholarship each year to an incoming student with ties to Assumption Catholic High School. The committee examines students based on financial need as well as their associations with Assumption alumni. Priority is given to families with ties to Assumption who are in financial need to attend Father McGivney Catholic High School. The scholarship awards in the past have covered $3000 per year for all 4 years of attendance.  In addition to the Assumption Alumni Scholarship application, students will need to submit a one page essay on why they want to continue their Catholic education, as well as a letter of recommendation, preferably from a related Assumption alum if possible. If you have no alumni connection or the alumni is deceased, a letter of recommendation from a teacher, family friend, youth minister, etc. would suffice. Within either the essay or the letter of recommendation, it behooves you to state your relationship with the alum. There is a place on the Assumption Alumni webpage where you can search alumni by last names, and may find a relative whom you did not realize attended the school.  The application, essay, and letter of recommendation need to be received by the Father McGivney Catholic High School office no later than May 31. This scholarship is open to incoming freshmen.
