Affording St. Margaret School

St. Margaret School is More Affordable Than You Think

At St. Margaret School, most families receive tuition assistance, financial aid, grants, and scholarships.

St. Margaret School is a tuition-driven Catholic grade school for students from Pre-K to 8th grade. Affording a Catholic education requires a substantial commitment from parents.  We are committed to making this as affordable as possible.

The full cost to educate a student at St. Margaret School is $6275  per year.  But through the generous support of our parishioners and other benefactors, the vast majority of families receive some form of tuition assistance.  

Last year, we provided $192,800 in scholarships and financial aid.

The only way to access all of the tuition assistance, financial aid and scholarship dollars potentially available is to complete the application through the FACTS Tuition Management System after applying to our school.

We strongly encourage all families to apply for financial aid!
