Tuition & Family Contribution

Although the cost to educate each student is approximately $13,500 per year – which includes books, use of student laptop, and transportation – Franciscan High School is committed to making a high quality, Catholic college preparatory education available to qualified students from low-to-moderate income families.  Please refer to the chart below for more details regarding income eligibility based on household size; your family income should not exceed the threshold for your household size: 

Household Size  Income Threshold
 1 $34,050
 2 $43,550
 3 $54,900
 4 $66,250
 5 $77,600
 6 $88,950
 7 $100,300
8 $111,650
Each additional family member $11,350


Students earn 60% of the cost of their education through our innovative Corporate Work Study Program. Scholarships from individuals and foundations cover another 25-30% of the cost. The remaining cost of the student’s education is the family’s responsibility. This amount ranges from $200-$1,620 per year based upon financial assessment.  Other fees for students include a $40 annual registration fee and PE uniforms.  Sport-specific fees may be administered specifically for each sport.  Breakfast and lunch costs are determined by household income.

While every family is expected to make some financial contribution to their child’s education, the Finance Office will work with each family to determine the appropriate amount.
