Financial Aid & Tuition Assistance

Tuition is an investment in your child's future, and St. Gregory the Great School is an excellent investment choice for academic, spiritual, social, and charitable growth. We are committed to making a quality Catholic education affordable for all, through discounted tuition rates for parishioners, payment plans, additional tuition discounts for parishioner families with multiple children in attendance, and a robust tuition assistance program. 


Tuition Assistance

 

At St. Gregory the Great School, every child deserves an education that will prepare them for not only a successful career, but develop them into Christ-centered individuals. We are here to help assist families who may normally not be able to afford a private school education, because we believe that every child, no matter the circumstances, should have an opportunity to succeed.

 

An application must be made each year to maintain eligibility, as tuition assistance awards do not automatically renew. Tuition assistance rewards results in a direct reduction of tuition expenses, vary in size and are awarded to families based on financial need.
