*For 2018-19 tuition for K-6th grade is $6,580. All kindergarten-6th grade students may apply for a parish tuition grant made possible by the generosity of St. Mary and St. John Catholic church. This scholarship reduces out-of-pocket tuition to the tuition published above. Many families are eligible for additional scholarship funding.

Scholarship Opportunities

Due to the generosity of our parishes and private donors, families receiving the parish tuition grant reduces the cost of tuition by more than 70%. There are additional scholarships for families that do not qualify for a parish tuition grant and those who need additional aid. If you have not qualified in past years, you may qualify this coming year with new guidelines. We highly encourage you to review available funding and apply for all potential scholarship funding. A large percentage of families are eligible to receive additional scholarship through local school district tax-funded programs. Even though your child attends a private school, you are entitled to some of the services your school tax dollars provide.

Kathy Shrader, HCCS Director of Finance, can assist you in finding all of the scholarship discounts you are eligible for in the upcoming school year. Mrs. Shrader is a tax expert by profession and has decades of experience in financial management. We are blessed to have her on staff!
