Saint Francis recognizes that a Catholic school education is a significant financial commitment. We know that the financial piece is an important part of the decision making process for families when choosing a Saint Francis education. We will work with families to make a Saint Francis education accessible and affordable for all.

We are Here to Support You

"Saint Francis is committed to providing tuition assistance in order to bridge the financial gap for students who desire a Holy Cross education. Tuition assistance goes beyond the application process, and we will be available to support students and their families throughout their 4 year journey, to help ensure a rich educational experience."
