Tuition & Grants/Aid

By choosing a Catholic school, a family is choosing to invest in a child’s future. A future of college and career success, but more importantly, the development of faith, morals, and values that will carry each child throughout his/her life. Catholic school education is a financial investment, and our graduates and their families would attest that it is well worth it!

The tuition breakdown is found below, followed by more information on how our school works to make Catholic education affordable and accessible for all families who seek it.

Grant & Aid

It is understood and appreciated the financial commitment and sacrifice families undertake in deciding to send their children to a Catholic school. And although paying for education is first and foremost the responsibility of a family, each school, parish, and various foundations (CSCOE, GHR, Aim Higher, etc.) devote significant funds each year to financial aid programs that help assist families. In turn, our school communities benefit by attracting students that otherwise would not be able to attend our schools.

K-8 Students are eligible for a $500 per student Parishioner Grant if their family is an active member of St. Dominic Church.

Preschool-8th Grade families are eligible for a multi-child discount of $580 when two or more children from the same household attend St. Dominic School.
