Tuition & Tuition Assistance
Tuition at Mater Christi School
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 $13,000. Unlike some Catholic schools, Mater Christi School is not subsidized with cash contributions from a parish. It is self-sustaining through tuition revenue and fund-raising. It is with great thought and careful deliberation that tuition rates are set.

Tuition Assistance at Mater Christi School
We recognize that committing to an independent school education requires a great deal of sacrifice for many families, and for some families, tuition may present a barrier to achieving an independent education for their child or children. Mater Christi School maintains a policy of supporting families who may require financial support in order to pay tuition, and the school distributes in excess of $180,000 per year in tuition assistance. Tuition assistance is available for all grades and is considered at many income levels, depending on the number of students and financial restrictions. Applications for tuition assistance and tuition assistance recipients are held in confidentiality.
