Tuition Rates

A Catholic education is a shared investment in your child’s future. The average cost to educate an Aquinas s
tudent is approximately $8,300, but parents are only asked to pay a portion of this total. The generous contributions of our supporting parishes, the Aquinas Schools Foundation, and individual benefactors allow us to provide your child(ren) outstanding educational opportunities at affordable tuition levels. We also make substantial funding available for grants and scholarships.
