Tuition & Financial Aid
While a Catholic education is important, a private school may not be financially feasible for your family. More than 40 percent of EHS students receive financial assistance and grants, up to a maximum of 55 percent of tuition and standard fees.
Edgewood High School uses the Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) to process applications and determine financial need. TADS does not award assistance; it provides EHS with a tool for allocation and we keep all of your information confidential.
Tuition Question & Answer
Yes, we include books and Chromebooks in the tuition cost. We do not require families to purchase their own textbooks. School-owned Chromebooks are individually assigned and distributed on registration day. The school purchases, owns, and distributes all textbooks and workbooks (except dictionaries) to students on the first or second day of class. We assess a fee for lost books and Chromebooks.
We offer payment plans that allow families to spread tuition costs over as many as 10 months. We accept payment via check, credit card, or automatic transfer.
The cost of tuition only covers 88 percent of the actual cost to educate an EHS student. The amount between the cost of tuition and what we ask families to pay is the tuition gap. We subsidize this gap (about $1,500 per student) through fundraising and donations, including those made by parents of current students.
More than 40 percent of EHS students receive a total of $750,000 in grant aid each year on the basis of financial need. If you feel that tuition might be cost-prohibitive, please request and complete a Confidential Financial Assistance Application form (due on March 31 of each year). This information allows our business manager to assess a family’s need for financial aid, weighing each individual's need against the bigger picture of all families who request assistance.
