Tuition Assistance: New Students
TUITION ASSISTANCE FOR NEW STUDENTS
Tuition assistance is granted to families who demonstrate financial need. Most families who send their children to St. Joseph High School make financial sacrifices. Our tuition assistance program is designed to help those families who, even with their sacrifices, are unable to meet the financial obligation of a full tuition.
St. Joseph High School will make every reasonable effort to offer tuition assistance to students whose family income and academic progress warrant such support. A student receiving tuition assistance must maintain each quarter: a minimum of 2.0 GPA with no “F” grade, no more than one “D” grade, and strive to model the school philosophy: To Image Christ in Mind, Heart, Body and Soul.
