Grants and Student Work Program

The cost of private Catholic education is such that the tuition and fees charged do not cover the total cost of educating each student. Marian’s Advancement efforts, including the Marian Fund, Spring Raffle, and parent club fundraisers, are designed to make up the difference between the actual cost of educating each student (approximately $17,575 for 2022-2023) and the tuition charged ($15,075). Therefore, in accordance with Marian’s mission to serve as many families as possible, a Marian Leadership Grant of $2,500 is made available to each student.

Fundamental to its mission is Marian's desire to make a Marian education available to as many students as possible and to assist families who find themselves facing economic uncertainty. All families in need of tuition assistance are encouraged to apply. For families of 8th grade students applying for fall enrollment, in order to receive a Tuition Assistance determination with your admission decision letter in January, you must file a FACTS/Grant & Aid application between October 26 and December 2 (using your 2020 tax filing), as well as your admission application. You may elect to resubmit your FACTS/Grant & Aid application in April using your 2021 tax return and your award amount may be updated if an increased need is demonstrated. Applications for returning students entering grades 10-12 should be completed in mid-March for the upcoming school year. Returning students must be registered before a request for assistance can be considered.
