Tuition & Financial Aid

The Affordability of Strake Jesuit

We believe that the cost of tuition should not deter a student from attending Strake Jesuit and are committed to working with each family's unique circumstances to provide need-based tuition assistance.

At Strake Jesuit, we accept students based on their ability to succeed in the classroom; embrace our Catholic, Jesuit mission; and become a leader and Man for Others - NOT their economic circumstances. For the 2020-21 school year, 18% of the student body will receive financial aid from a budget of $3.4 million. Awards range from $3,000 to full aid ($22,700) and the average award is $14,500. All applicants are notified of financial aid awarded when they receive their acceptance letter in March.

Tuition & Textbooks

Tuition is $22,700 for the 2020-2021 school year. For incoming freshmen and transfer students, a non-refundable $1,000 payment is due at the time of registration ($500 registration fee and $500 tuition deposit).

Strake Jesuit now provides textbooks directly to families at no additional costs beyond the cost of tuition. In the past, our families typically spent $400-$800 per year on textbooks. E-books are sent directly to a student's iPad and printed textbooks are shipped directly to his home. Tuition also includes the cost of the student's iPad.
