Tuition Assistance Is Available

St. Catherine’s Academy strives to welcome all qualified applicants regardless of their ability to afford full tuition. We seek to provide the best affordable education for young men/or leaders. Through tuition assistance we help families of economic diversity to join our mission and tuition support to meet the cost of SCA. 

Tuition assistance covers a portion of the family’s tuition cost and other fees. Each family’s need is evaluated on an individual basis to determine the amount awarded. The availability of funds for financial aid varies each year. We encourage those interested in applying for financial aid to do so as soon as possible as funds are limited. Families requesting financial aid must apply on a yearly basis and meet specific criteria.
