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.
We recognize that affording Cheverus is a financial challenge for many families. Last year Cheverus awarded more than $2 million in financial aid packages to about 65% 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.
Applying for financial aid through the online FACTS application as early as possible enables a family to be considered for tuition assistance. Applicants for Fall 2020 are encouraged to submit applications by December 31, 2019.
- Holding Fee: A $750 non-refundable holding fee is required within two weeks of receiving your decision letter in order to secure your place in the class. This fee will be applied to your tuition balance.
- Books: $200 - $500 depending if you rent them, buy them or download a version (depends on the class).
- General class fees: These run about $200 and cover art supplies, yearbook, retreat, etc. These fees are paid prior to the beginning of the school year.
- Dress code: About $150 - Many families purchase the pants and shirts from Lands End using coupons. Blazers can often be found at Goodwill.
- Personal device: Freshmen are required to have a personal device that can be used in class as we move to a 1:1 program. Phones do not qualify. Personal devices are purchased independently by families prior to the beginning of the school year.
*The actual cost to educate a Cheverus student is over $25,780. Historically the tuition rate has increased about 3% each academic year. Rate increases are determined at the December Board meeting and then publicized in January.
