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 $18,625 for 2023-2024) and the tuition charged ($15,825). Therefore, in accordance with Marian’s mission to serve as many families as possible, a Marian Leadership Grant of $2,800 is made available to each student.

Fundamental to our mission is our 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. Beginning with the 2020-21 school year, Marian’s Board of Directors made a commitment to dramatically increase the amount of tuition assistance available to Marian families. Tuition assistance awards range from $500 to $11,000.

Families new to Marian:
You may apply for tuition assistance for the upcoming school year when you apply for admission. In order to receive a tuition assistance notification with your admission decision letter in January, you must file a FACTS/Grant & Aid application by December 7, 2023 (using your 2022 tax filing). You may elect to resubmit your FACTS/Grant & Aid application in April using your 2023 tax return and your award amount may be updated if an increased need is demonstrated. The FACTS Grant & Aid application will go live on this page in October. Marian will make tuition assistance awards to on-time admission applicants with admission decisions on January 26, 2024. Families applying for admission after December 7, 2023 may be eligible, depending on funds remaining at the time of application.
Current Families:
Applications for returning students entering grades 10-12 should be completed in mid-March for the upcoming school year (using your 2023 tax return). Returning students must be registered before a request for assistance can be considered.

Families living in the Archdiocese of Detroit can apply for Archdiocesan Grants offered to active parishioners. Applications are due in March. You may apply for an AOD grant beginning in February 2024 by logging back into your FACTS/Grant and Aid application (created for Marian), and answering the additional AOD questions, submitting a pastor signature letter and uploading 2022 tax documents as necessary. Information regarding assistance from the Archdiocese of Detroit is available at AOD

Marian offers a work program for students interested in assisting with their tuition.  Students may work either before school, after school, or during a study period.  Earnings are credited directly to the student’s tuition account.
