Tuition & Financial aid

2020-2021 Tuition Fee Schedule

​It has been a long-standing tradition at Holy Cross School to make Catholic education affordable for all. Holy Cross Parish collaborates with St. Patrick, St. Mary, and the surrounding Catholic parishes to provide the financial resources needed to cover our operating expenses.

The current cost to educate one child at Holy Cross School is $6550. Every Catholic family in good standing, regardless of which parish they attend, is eligible to receive the discounted rate of tuition published in the chart below. The pastor of your parish will be asked to verify that you are registered and participating in the life of the parish. To bridge the gap created by the cost of education and the discounted rate of tuition, St. Patrick, St. Mary, and the surrounding Catholic parishes that chose to send their children to Holy Cross School agree to provide an additional $1000 per child to assist Holy Cross Parish with the cost of education at Holy Cross School.​
