Tuition & Financial Aid


At Marist School, we strongly believe applicants should be admitted based on their ability to thrive within our academic environment, not their ability to afford the cost of a Marist education. To that end, Marist awards more than $2 million in financial aid annually to nearly 20% of the student body to ensure our school is accessible to qualified students.

We understand that a Marist School education is both a significant financial commitment and a sacrifice, but we know it is an investment that grows in impact over time.
