Tuition Assistance

Mater Christi School Administrators, Board of Trustees and the Sisters of Mercy are committed to maintaining an annual tuition that is affordable. The actual per student cost at Mater Christi is in excess of $12,000. Through assistance awarded by the Sisters of Mercy, funds raised by our annual campaign and other donations, we are able to subsidize tuition at its current rate for 2017-2018. We recognize that this amount requires a great deal of sacrifice for so many families.

Families requiring tuition assistance must complete the FACTS application online. Prior to completing the application, we ask that all families examine their personal needs and expenses to be sure the amount requested is an honest reflection of financial need. Families must submit their paperwork with FACTS as detailed below. In addition, families must submit a letter to the Tuition Assistance Committee, Attn: Kate Lafferty, with information about your family and a narrative detailing financial hardship. Families with any questions or concerns are invited to contact Tim Loescher, President/Head of School, at
