Tuition Assistance

St. Mary’s High School believes quality Catholic education should be within reach of all families. That is why St. Mary's commits 10% of the annual budget, over $500,000 a year, to tuition assistance. More than 65% of students receive some form of assistance. In addition, St. Mary's High School continues to be the most affordable and accessible all-boys Catholic High School in the St. Louis Area.
