Affordability & Financial Assistance
Affordability and Financial Assistance
The Diocese of Joliet, along with our schools, believes that a Catholic education should be available, accessible and affordable to any family with a desire to provide their child with a quality education in a faith-filled Catholic environment.
Catholic education changes lives, but we recognize enrollment is not a feasible reality for everyone. The Catholic Education Foundation (CEF) provides families with the financial support they need to send their children to Catholic school in the Diocese of Joliet. Each year more than $6 million in financial assistance is awarded to families attending CEF-supported schools. While families must contribute something, we strive to ensure that if there is a desire to have a Catholic education, we will work with a family to provide it. There are a number of ways to receive financial assistance, including scholarships, grants, endowments and tuition reductions.
Your investment in your child’s future will provide them with an opportunity to continue growing in their Catholic faith while receiving a superior academic education. Our students are prepared for success in further education, a productive career and a life eternal with God. We thank you for your consideration of the Diocese of Joliet Catholic schools.
We encourage families to speak with a school’s admissions coordinator, principal or parish leader to learn more about the options available for affording one of the greatest gifts you can give your child. For school-specific tuition and enrollment information, contact your local school directly.
