    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 77% of our students receive scholarship awards or tuition assistance. Tuition for the 2023-2024 school year is $17,700 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.

If you have questions that are not answered in the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below, please contact the Finance Department.

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 2023-2024 school year.

Diocesan Tuition Assistance

Students of Saint Joseph Academy may qualify for Diocesan Tuition Assistance (DTA) Grants from the Diocese of Cleveland. The same FACTS form is used to determine DTA grants. Notifications will be announced in late May 2024.


Saint Joseph Academy awards a number of scholarships, ranging from $500-$7,500. Many of these scholarships are available through the generosity of our donors. In order to be considered for any scholarship except Music and Visual Arts, you must complete the “Saint Joseph Academy Common Scholarship Application – Class of 2028.”

All of Saint Joseph Academy's scholarship applications for the Class of 2028 will be available in the near future.
