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 2024-25 school year, over 22% of the student body received financial aid from a budget of over $5.3 million. Awards ranged from $4,000 to full aid after deposit and the average award was $15,900. All applicants are notified of financial aid awarded when they receive their acceptance letter in March.

Tuition & Textbooks

Tuition is $26,985 for the 2024-2025 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 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!
