Tuition & Financial Grants

Do you believe a private school education is out of reach for your family? The truth might surprise you.

St. Michael’s Catholic Academy sprang from humble beginnings. When we opened in 1984, we were founded to serve, and as a Christ-centered institution, we work to create opportunities for students from a variety of backgrounds and strive to be a school that is accessible.
 
Tuition cost should never be the sole determining factor in whether a deserving young person can be a part of our Crusader community.

Our tuition model is dynamic. What does that mean for your application? It means that our model looks at many factors - not only income - to determine eligibility for a financial grant.

Come in. Let’s talk. 
 
“My older brother and I both attended St. Michael’s on grants. I learned at a young age how to work hard for a goal. I believe St. Michael’s instilled within me a strong work ethic that has served me well throughout my career and life and taught me how important it is to give back in service to the community.” 
Jaime H. ‘94

    • Domestic tuition for the 2020-2021 school year is set at $23,095.
    • International tuition for the 2020-2021 school year is set at $27,400.
    Tuition for upcoming school years is announced in the winter of the current school year (typically in December).
  • What if we're not returning?

    Families must notify Rae Harrison in the registrar office by February 15, 2020. Withdrawal paperwork will need to be completed by this date to avoid auto re-enrollment (including deposit and tuition payments).
  • Do I have to create a FACTS account?

    Yes! All families are required to have a FACTS account. There is no fee from FACTS to create an account. During account activation, the tuition amount due (including any financial aid awarded prior to March 1) will be available to view.
     
    If you have any concerns about having a FACTS account, please contact Laura Gillman or Bob Hymson.
  • How does auto re-enrollment work if we're applying for a grant?

    Families will be auto re-enrolled and will receive financial grant notifications in a timely manner after receipt of a Financial Grant Application.

    As a family's needs may change year to year, a Finacial Grant Application must be filled out annually to review qualifications. Each year, the application will go live in the winter. Families are to complete an application by the early spring deadline in order to be granted a financial grant before first payments are made in May.
 

Financial Grants 2020-2021

St. Michael's invites candidates to apply for a financial grant as a way to receive a college preparatory Catholic education irrespective of economic status. Annually, St. Michael's provides assistance to more than 150 students, or 28% of our student body. Awards do not require repayment by recipients. The St. Michael's Financial Grant Committee determines the tuition assistance award for each applicant.

We use the FACTS system, which we feel is user friendly. An Aid Assessment will assist the committee by conducting a preliminary financial need analysis for St. Michael's for the upcoming school year.

A flyer with full instructions on accessing the aid application is available here. The application for applying for a financial grant for the current academic year is now online. You may access the application from this link.

For questions regarding financial grants, please contact Mr. Carlon Haas at (512) 328-2323, ext.1828.
