Scholarships and Financial Aid

The total cost to educate each student at Marian Catholic High School for the 2024-2025 school year is $12,688. 


Marian Catholic discounts that cost in an effort to keep tuition and fees as affordable as possible for our families.
MCHS offers financial aid to families that qualify based on financial need. Average tuition assistance is $3,000 per family. Financial aid applications must be submitted each year through the STS website.
Maximum consideration for financial aid is available to all families who have submitted their completed applications by June 1, 2024.


Amounts can vary from year to year. Families must have their current accounts paid in full by June 20, 2024 in order to be considered for financial aid for the upcoming school year. Financial aid cannot be awarded if there is a past due balance. Students who withdraw are at risk of losing their initial financial aid award.


All fund amounts can vary from year to year. This can impact the amount of the award extended to each family on a yearly basis. Families may receive aid from one or more of the varying sources, but are not guaranteed to get money from every source that Marian Catholic High School has available.
