An Investment in Your Future

The knowledge and experiences gained at Cheverus, as well as the relationships developed, set the foundation for academic, personal and spiritual success. A Cheverus education is an investment in the future.

 

Tuition Assistance

We recognize that affording Cheverus is a financial challenge for many families. This year Cheverus awarded more than $2.8 million in financial aid packages to over 70% of the student body. Although families are expected to make a significant contribution to their child’s education that is within their means, as determined by filling out the FACTs Tuition Assistance Application, we do not want finances to be the only reason your student does not attend Cheverus. If you will be applying for financial assistance, we encourage you to open a dialogue early in the admissions process with the Admissions team.
