Tuition Assistance & Scholarships

Give and gifts will be given to you; a good measure, packed together, shaken down, and overflowing will be poured into your lap. (Luke 6:38)

The Diocese of Cleveland understands that Catholic education is an investment in the future of our children and in our faith. Unsurpassed academic achievement, along with the reinforcement of Catholic faith and formation, a Catholic education provides a solid foundation for personal success. Making the decision to provide a student with these foundations also coincides with financial sacrifice. Please read on to learn about several options to defray the cost of tuition.
