    Students Receive Tuition Assistance
We are aware of the many sacrifices that families make to send their daughters to Saint Joseph Academy and take great care each year to grant assistance to families in need. Accordingly, approximately 75% of our students receive scholarship awards or tuition assistance. Tuition for the 2021-2022 school year is $16,300. There is a $125 technology fee for all students.

We work with each family to ensure that applying for tuition assistance and scholarships is as simple and seamless as possible. We realize that this process can feel overwhelming, so please feel welcome to contact us with your questions. You can also view our frequently asked questions below.

Tuition Assistance

A FACTS Grant & Aid Application must be completed to be eligible for a Saint Joseph Academy Tuition Assistance Award. FACTS, a third party vendor, evaluates all applications and establishes each family’s financial need. Saint Joseph Academy uses this information to determine tuition assistance awards. Please make sure you complete an application for the 2022-2023 school year.

The deadline to complete the online FACTS application is November 23, 2021.
