    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 2022-2023 school year is $17,000 plus an additional $125 technology fee and a $60 registration fee. 

For some, the process of applying for tuition assistance and scholarships can feel overwhelming. This is why we work with each family to ensure the process is as simple and seamless as possible.
