Tuition & Financial Aid

At Marist we strive to provide a quality Catholic education for your tuition dollars. Tuition covers only a portion of the actual cost to educate a student at Marist. Our dedicated parents, alumni, and students sponsor events that benefit the entire school and allow us to cover the deficit. Catholic education is an investment, and at Marist we are grateful for the sacrifice of our families, and we work every day to provide a worthy education and experience to our students.

Registration fee: $200.00
2015-16 Tuition: $11,300.00
Total: $11,500.00

An early payment discount is available as well as a monthly payment plan through the business office. The purchase of books and uniforms is the responsibility of each Marist family.

Financial Aid

Marist High School is committed to making a high quality Catholic education affordable to students by allocating funds for need-based financial assistance.

  • Currently, over 25% of Marist families receive financial assistance
  • The average award per family for the 2013-14 academic year is approximately $1780.

What is Financial Assistance?
Financial assistance refers to funds granted to make a Marist education more affordable to families. Funds for financial assistance are generated by fund-raising events, the Marist High School Endowment Fund, the annual fund drive and through the contributions of generous alumni, parents and other donors. All grants are based on a family’s demonstrated financial need and the program’s availability of funds. Each family is required to contribute to the cost of educating their child.

The chart shows the number of Need-Based Financial Awards provided to families who completed the Financial Aid Application for the 2013-14 academic year. Marist High School focuses on fairly and equally evaluating all of its families based on each family’s income and tuition obligations and does not discriminate on the basis of gender or ethnic origin. 

Who should apply?
If a need exists, we encourage families to apply. A number of factors are considered to determine whether or not a family will qualify for financial assistance. These factors include household size, number or children at private schools or colleges, medical emergencies, etc.

When and how should I apply?
Once a student is accepted into Marist High School, families must complete the Financial Aid Application. Formal acceptance letters are mailed on February 15th and Financial Aid Applications are available after this date, on our website and in our Main Office.


In addition, applications for financial assistance may be completed using FACTS.  Once an account is created, the application process can be done online.

Completed Financial Aid Applications must be submitted with the most recent copy of your tax return. Applications are typically due the second week in March. Late applications may not be considered. Letters of notification regarding financial awards are usually mailed on or before the last week in March. Completed Financial Aid Applications for upper class students only must be submitted by April 15th.

Must I re-apply each year?
Yes. Financial Aid is often renewed annually, provided the student is in good academic and disciplinary standing and the family completes the Financial Aid Application each year to demonstrate continued economic need.
