The value of a Cathedral education...

Tuition & Fees

Cathedral High School is committed to providing a superior education at an affordable price. The Cathedral Board of Directors establishes an annual tuition, which represents only a portion of the cost of educating each student.

True College Preparation

Depth of College Counseling
  • Students work with their dedicated college counselor all four years, giving them an advantage in being accepted into the colleges of their choice.
Diversity of Student Body

There is an annual fee for students enrolled in the Language Support Program of $800 for 9th and 10th grade, and $400 for 11th and 12th grade.

Tuition Assistance

Each year through the generosity of alumni, parents, students and friends, Cathedral is able to offer tuition assistance to students who might not otherwise be able to afford private education. In fact, Cathedral has awarded approximately $2.8 million in tuition assistance during the 2018-2019 school year. If you are hesitant to consider Cathedral for financial reasons, we strongly encourage you to apply for tuition assistance, as such assistance has made Cathedral a reality for many families!
