Tuition & Financial Aid

A Cathedral School education is enhanced by multiple perspectives, which occur in an inclusive, socioeconomically diverse community. Families that require tuition assistance must apply for financial aid when they apply for admission. Applications for admission and financial aid are considered independently, but admission decisions and financial aid awards are communicated at the same time.

Tuition for the 2024-2025 academic year is $62,000.

Applying for Financial Aid at The Cathedral School

Step 1: Indicate your intention to apply for financial aid on the admission application
Submit the application for admission and, when prompted, indicate that you intend to apply for financial aid.  
Step 2: Complete the online Tuition Aid Data Services (TADS) application
The financial aid application is processed through TADS. The 2024-2025 TADS Application will be available on or after October 2, 2023. Complete the financial aid application online by clicking here
Step 3: Collect and submit requested documents to TADS
In general, you will need the following:
  • Federal Income Tax Return
  • W-2 and 1099 Forms
  • Year-end Business Statements (if applicable)
  • Any other required documents requested by TADS
Step 4: School Review and Notification
The Cathedral School’s Financial Aid Committee reviews each financial aid application and determines the grant based on the family's need. Admission decisions and financial aid awards are communicated at the same time.

Note: Families who do not apply or who do not qualify for financial aid in a given year will not be eligible to apply for tuition assistance the following year.  Barring extenuating circumstances, the family must wait until a second full academic year has expired before re-applying for financial aid.
