Tuition & Financial Aid
Saint Francis High School tuition for the 2019-2020 school year is $20,000. The tuition will include a non-refundable initial payment of $1,000. This non-refundable $1,000 payment is due on March 28, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. for incoming students and in May, 2019 for returning students.
Saint Francis seeks to make its education available to every eligible student who would benefit from a Catholic, Holy Cross education, no matter his/her financial status. Aid is granted on the basis of financial need with the amount of the award dependent upon the resources available. All entering students who apply for aid will be considered. Applying for financial aid has no bearing on the admission process.
Financial aid is granted solely on the basis of financial need and includes a work grant component that requires students to give tuition service hours back to the school. Work/Service hours will be scheduled to allow students to fully participate in normal school and extracurricular activities. Incoming freshmen will be exempt from service/work hours for their freshman year in the financial aid program.
All students enrolled in the financial aid program are required to perform their tuition service hours responsibly, cooperatively and maintain good grades and good citizenship. Recipients of tuition assistance are required to achieve at least a 2.0 GPA in all of their classes.

Each year, an online financial aid application is to be submitted by all families requesting consideration for financial aid. FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment will be conducting the financial need analysis for Saint Francis High School for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year.
