Tuition Information

At Saint Joe’s, we believe that financial circumstances should not prevent a student from the benefits of a high-quality Catholic education. Saint Joe’s is committed to making sure a Catholic high school education is available to all students and families who seek this opportunity.

Financial aid is available to help us fulfill this commitment. If your family is interested in Saint Joe’s, but concerned about affording tuition and fees, learn more about how financial aid can help.

TUITION

Tuition for the 2019-20 school year is $8,900 for domestic students and $17,500 for international students.

The actual cost per student is about $16,000; Saint Joe’s does not receive parish or Diocesan funding. The difference between tuition and cost per student is made up by generous contributions from individuals, families, and businesses who believe in the value of a Catholic high school education and are committed to supporting the mission of Saint Joe’s.

ACTIVITY/TECHNOLOGY/TEXTBOOK FEE

Saint Joe’s has a fee to support 1:1 technology that offers a personal MacBook Air for every student, to cover activities and textbooks. The 2019-2020 fee is $650.
