Tuition & Affordability

At Saint Thomas Aquinas, we are committed to making a Catholic education affordable to all.

As a Catholic high school in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas, we strive to offer financial assistance to families who desire a Catholic education. Since our inception in 1988, the mission has always been to make tuition affordable and accessible to students from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds.

Over 1.9 million awarded yearly in financial assistance.

Financial Assistance

We are happy to assist families who demonstrate a genuine financial need based on their income, family size, employment, expenses, priorities for spending, and unique circumstances. The cost of tuition should not deter a student from attending Saint Thomas Aquinas. We are committed to working with each family's unique circumstances to provide need-based tuition assistance. The aid is provided on an annual renewal basis. 

Saint Thomas Aquinas uses FACTS Grant & Aid Assessment, an independent, outside provider, to collect a variety of financial information, including income, assets, and expenses, to objectively evaluate each family’s financial needs. The funds will be distributed in the most equitable way possible taking each family's circumstances into consideration. Please note, that we reserve the option to deny a family's application if they do not qualify.

Applications for current and new families applying for assistance for the 2024-25 school year are due December 15th, 2023. Timely submission of all financial aid forms is essential. Upload your most current W-2 when you receive it.

Financial assistance awards will be distributed to families following the program's deadlines. Any applications or verification documents submitted after the deadline will be considered for secondary rounds of assistance but may receive less assistance than a similar family who applied within the deadlines.
