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 2022-23 school year, roughly 23% of the student body will receive financial aid from a budget of nearly $4.8 million. Awards ranged from $3,000 to full aid ($24,465) and the average award was $14,500. All applicants are notified of financial aid awarded when they receive their acceptance letter in March.

Tuition & Textbooks

Tuition is $24,465 for the 2022-2023 school year. For incoming freshmen and transfer students, a non-refundable $1,050 payment is due at the time of registration ($500 registration fee, $500 tuition deposit, and $50 Tuition Management fee).

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, P.E. uniform, science goggles, AP fees, parking tag fees, and more!
